Love Koji's tracks on the La Dispute split. Haven't heard IIOI.

Thank you. I'm guessing a lot of the people who voted for C&C haven't actually listened to Alexis.

Insert Kanye West joke here.

The so-called wave is too good.

Don't think very many of these are actually personalized to the band.

I actually prefer the scoring system, it allows me to quickly glance at a review without having to read the whole thing (when I don't feel like reading the whole thing, of course). Please don't...

I never said this. I just said that a professional reviewer should have at least some background on what they are reviewing; enough to fully understand the basic concepts. It's an incredibly...

Look, all I'm saying is that I think it's generally preferable that professional reveiwers/writers/journalists have some background on the topic that they are writing about. Not exactly a radical...

I mean City & Colour is good and all, but I'd take Alexis any day.

I'm kinda pissed at Dallas for leaving still.

I don't see any ex-NFL players, but I'd like to believe that a majority of them have played football at at least some point in their life. If I'm wrong, then I would extend the same criticism to...

I can definitely relate to this. I've only listened to this twice as a result.

Same thing happened with Somewhere... at first except I ended up really getting into it after a break-up.

Not absurd. There is a huge difference between commenting on a football game to your buddies and writing as a staff reviewer on an established music site. You wouldn't want someone who has never...

You are right in that we obviously cannot calculate the "actual average." You are also right that we can only base concrete conclusions based on what we have observed. However, it seems reasonable...

Here is my point.

Say I listen to ten albums.

In my head, I rate them 3, 6, 8, 4, 10, 3, 6, 9, 6, 5.

Say I review four of these albums of my choosing. Since I tend to review albums from bands I...

No, I haven't. If anything I understand the context more than you do. The number that you have given is the average score of the albums that he has reviewed. This is completely irrelevant, since...

You are missing the point that he has probably rated hundreds of albums that he hasn't reviewed.

Now that Alexisonfire has broken up, what is your favorite AOF-associated band? Or you can just pick the original Alexisonfire.
