A fanboy? Never said that. I promote good music. I've given less than stellar grades to some of my favorite artists such Max Bemis, Chris Conley, Craig Owens, and Alkaline Trio. I'm pals with All Time Low and I think their new album is awful. TBS is one of my favorite bands ever and I've ripped on their last two albums. If I think a band's new album is good/great, I'm gonna promote the shit out of it, how is that a bad thing?
Ugh you should really not use that word haha

Promote/hype/talk about, whatever. If the music is good, i am going to encourage people to listen to it/buy it/support it. I'm gonna back the bands that deserve it.

i absolutely cannot get enough of this album.

also, to the kids who are butthurt over a numerical scale (that the staff has pointed out countless times has little to no bearing on their actual opinion), quit being lazy and READ THE REVIEW. and if you don't have the time for that, at least take the time to listen to the music and decide for YOURSELVES whether you like it or not. jesus, you'd think it was a crime to form your own opinion from reading this thread.

Are you bashing ratings? The guy who uses a "projected score"?

It doesn't bug me, but its an observation I've made. If I had the time on my hands, id do statistical analysis to prove that Drew's reviews are statistically significantly higher than the rest of the staff.

Absolutely love the album.

Thought the first paragraph is far too wordy and awkward.

It's the same stuff because critics never give out 10's and perfect reviews like you do every time.
Go complain on another review he's done or something. This album is absolutely incredible and deserves every ounce of that 91%.

This is why the rating system should just go away.

Haven't listened yet, so I have no judgment currently. However, after reading their press interviews, AP chats, and other miscellaneous reviews around the web-world, I'm slightly discouraged about their shift from what made them so great on Foreword. Regardless, I can't make any final criticisms (at least fair or correct ones) until I listen for myself.

This is not a shot at Drew or any of the writers here and as a reviewer myself I will say this:

Who gives a fuck about the score?
Why dont you just read the thoughts?
Why dont you listen to the music yrself and base your own opinion?
At the end of the day, why the fuck does it matter what Drew, Thomas, Jeremy say about an album?

I don't care if you agree with my reviews. I just hope you take the time to check out the music.

4glory, you are a whiney bitch, dude. Listen. To. The. Music. If one person's opinion of a specific artist or album is holding you back from experiencing it I feel bad for you.

I dont care if people agree with my reviews, you know why? Because I'm not pompous enough to think I know everything.

What I was getting at is that this site used to be very selective on reviews with scores over 90. When an album got a score that high, it was a big deal.

Then Drew comes along with his reviewer rating scale of 90-98%. Only 8 percent and it's all at the very top. It totally breaks the system.
We have never been any more or less selective with "scores."
