Come on, "a 95% from joe" as if I hand out 90's left and right. I've only rated 1 album a 90% in the 5 or whatever years I've been reviewing, and that was over three years ago. I wouldn't have written so much if I didn't completely feel this way. If people are going to pass on this because I typically like a lot of shitty music then that's their own ignorance they have to deal with.
that wasn't what I was suggesting in the slightest.
You like very poppy rock, everyone knows it. Not a bad thing, I agree with you at least 70% of the time.
And I'm not saying people are passing on it due to your review, or that you gave it a high score. People are going to dislike it for being a poppy pile of cheese and glitz. No matter if they read your review or not.
