    I SOOO agree with you... Considering his jumps are often UR, there is almost nothing interesting left...
    And the question is : for his short program this year, how could he not listen to the music ? I'm not a fan of Kevin Reynolds, but i liked it, and i think it's because he had no choice but to listen to it (that was not the case in his free program, and i found it annoying...)


    “She’s a really nice coach,” Reynolds said. “She picks all my music for me. I don’t listen to music much myself but I like to skate to anything but heavy metal. It’s fun to get the audience going. The more they get into it, the more I get into it.”

    The article is from 2004. He was 13. Now he chooses the music.
    Sometimes he makes his choreography.

    Yeah and this is precisely what's funny. I'm sure he would laugh if you showed him this interview
    And i'm sure he said he didn't listen to the music simply because it was the case when he was young.

    A lot of coaches will tell you to do the program and not listen to the music. When you try to skate to the music you muck it up!
