This album sucks.


This is absolutely the same album as the last one. No progression


Jay-Z should really pimp smack these little girls because this shit has AUTO-TUNE written all over it.


All Time Low is literally a boy band that has instruments in front of them.
There is progression. You don't know what Auto-Tune really is. They can perform live, and it's great.

Not surprised by the mediocre review. Not gonna stop me from buying this CD though. I love every last cheesy fucking line these kids write. Its too catchy to give a crap.
It isn't a mediocre review.

They refined the pop elements of their song-writing, and Alex has grown into his natural singing voice, which is higher pitched than their old material.

One of us is operating with an incorrect definition of mediocre. I'm okay with it.
It's a 76%. How does that constitute as "mediocre"? Mid 70's is what most albums get around here.

me⋅di⋅o⋅cre [mee-dee-oh-ker] –adjective
1) of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate.
2) rather poor or inferior.

If you operate within the bounds of typical grading schemes, a 76% is a C/C+, which almost any teacher or professor will tell you is average. A "B", of course, being above average and "A" being superb.

Moderate quality roughly translates to "average quality". I kinda went with that. By the way, I don't particularly care, just making a stupid point.

you can't view rating scales like school grade scales.

in rating scales, a 50% is mediocre or average. a rating of 76% is good.

Yeah, someone beat me to it. You're viewing this like a term paper in school, which it's not. This is based off of 100%, not 60%. 75% around here is what you would equate to a B+/A-, I would say.

Bah. No idea how I missed this. And yes, I was absolutely basing it off school grades. I've had several professors that kinda instilled the notion that I should view everything in these terms.
It's no problem, it's a common misconception a lot of people have with the grading scale here.

Writing your own review I think definitely gives you a new understanding of how the numeric system works.


Not that the numeric system is that important, seeing as how the numbers aren't really universal. In my opinion, those are the least important part of any review.
