Sadly, I do give a fuck about an Oxford comma, and you could use them more often.

And why is Rise Against a RIYL?

Rating does not match review. At all.

You praise the album with only a couple of minor complaints, then give "reviewer tilt" a 5.
Then you recommend it to fans of Rise Against, who I like and do make "meaningful music" but sound very different to, and old Thursday despite having said it is a turning point for them.
Review wasn't bad, but score and RIYL were confusing.
Also, I'd reccommend you give this some more spins -- it's really good.

I would not EVER compare Thursday, especially this album, to Rise Against. Apples and oranges, much?

And I agree with SourStuff, the more I listen to this album the better it gets; very nearly a 100% IMO

There is no excuse for this score. This album is at least a 90. I would say 93%. The reviewer tilt is kinda bullshit as well.

Also.....whats with the RIYL? Rise Against? Really?

After listening to this album more and more over the last 4-5 months, I'd definitely score it higher now. It's hard to really gauge how much you're going to like an album after only hearing it 4-5 times in a span of a day or two.

At the time I submitted the review, I wasn't sure what Reviewer Tilt was, hence the 5.
Honestly I can't remember what triggered me to compare it to Rise Against, but I'm sure it made sense (to me, at least) at the time.
And I have given it significantly more spins now, and I would definitely score it higher.

Please, do not kill me! I would say it's higher than my original score, but not nearly 100%. I respect your opinion though.

That's good, I mean if you don't like it that's fine and you're well within your rights to explain why, but I thought you would have been better served by listening to it until it clicked.
It's gotta be better to take the time and eventually enjoy a record than just dismiss it right?

Sometimes it's hard to listen to an album enough times for it to click when you're reviewing it. There's only a certain amount of time I had to listen to it before I had to submit the review. I now fully appreciate the album because it's been out for months and I've had a lot more listens. I don't think I dismissed the album back in April, I just wrote what I thought of it at the time. Also, it's unfair and difficult to try to write a review based on how much you might like it in the future.

Whose deadline were you working towards?
It's unfair and difficult to try to write a review without listening to the record enough to pass fair judgement in the first place.
