Thanks for the feedback on my review. I knew I liked the record, but it took time to embrace Ruess' "new sound." Upon analysis, what it added up to was that the jammier side of Some Nights...

Like Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Robin Thicke, and to be honest, there aren't too many other examples. I'm referring to artists who get play on mainstream radio whose fans are typically teeny...

Still don't know what "removed for content" means or what changes need to be made.

What does "removed for content mean?" What changes should I make? Were you ever going to tell me?

Clearly, my time is too important for this process. I was hoping that one of my favorite websites...

Hey guys, big Nate Ruess fan here. I recently got into a bit with some AP.Net staff over the lukewarm reviews of this record. I wrote a review of Grand Romantic that I'd like some feedback on, but...

I certainly wasn't "blaming" Ruess for this. What I said was that he made safe choices because he knows who his audience is. Also, I like the album very much! Why would I place blame for a sonic...

Not going to address my criticism of your review? You're clearly butt hurt, but if you're a writer, why not provide a retort other than criticism my never-posted review? Am I wrong that most people...

I guess I'm not clear why my review wasn't accepted because I never received feedback. I submitted it two weeks ago. Years ago, I submitted reviews, received feedback, made changes and the reviews...

Damn dude, I can't get through this review. If it were three paragraphs shorter and only talked about the album in question, it would be an improvement. Also, no offense, but who cares about the...

Hi there,

I submitted a review of Nate Ruess - Grand Romantic over a week ago. I didn't see it posted and didn't get any feedback. Will it ever be posted?

Thanks,
Danny

Either positive or negative. This review is neither.

Or perhaps just records that they don't feel lukewarm about. What's the point of that?

OK, I won't act that way. In fact, Nate's sincerity is my favorite feature of his. That's really cool that fun. gave y'all exclusive access. I really think you should have chosen a reviewer who...

1. Perhaps a wake up call is needed for those who will always whine unless Ruess rehashes the sounds of previous albums that we AP.net readers enjoy. Wah Wah Wah, how about some support for someone...

What I'm saying is that in the process of writing and recording this record, no, he didn't consider whether or not the hardcore fans would like it because they don't spend $$ on albums, and...

Nah, you guys got it all wrong. First of all, NATE is big shit now. The people that use this website do not matter in terms of record sales and Nate making money. He's too big for us. Hell, I didn't...

Guys, I'm gonna have to disagree with all of the praise that this album is getting. Five tracks in, there's not a single memorable moment other than the xylophone solo. No interesting melodies or...

I've been a daily reader of Absolutepunk for seven years and as a Long Island native now living in LA, I decided to record a few TBS/BN/SR covers to bring me back to the good old days. ...

You didn't "aformention" "Lord Knows." Did you read your own review? Who says "aforementioned" twice? Also, all you did was say how much you liked the record, then gave it an 85. Curious. ...
