Hmm. Can't tell from the review whether or not I'll prefer this to Weight of the World, which I felt was the second best hardcore record of last year (first being Symptoms and Cures by CBK)
But, why should you be able to do that? A review is 90 times out of a 100 just another opinion and description of the album, and the remaining 10 are usually thinly veiled attempts to suck up to the band. Reviewers aren't really supposed to sell the album either, a lot of people seem to forget that. Not saying you do, just something I've noticed.
I'm actually relieved that the hype didn't seem to sway the score on this review up into the nineties as that seems to be the generally practiced method around here...
I like this review. Good job, Dre.
