But its tough to be like: Oh this is my opinion (and I really like the album), let me take the point of view of someone who will hate this album.
I'm not suggesting that you develop a hateful perspective. I felt this review, like many others on this site, was one dimensional. I'm not saying all are.
Its pretty hard to do that. Take an album you hate and spin your review for people who will like it. It would be real, it would be an album review with content but no substance.
Depends on how much you hate it, School Gyrls would be difficult to spin convincingly, but what your saying isn't relevant to my argument because you only assume two perspectives exist.
Also, since the review is subjective, the score of the author should be totally meaningless to the viewer, since it is just an opinion anyways.
The score matters a lot more to someone who is reading the review before they listen to the album. Having your first listen of a song or an album after you've read the review, whether or not you were able to take it seriously it, still solidifies an opinion before you are able to experience it.
