AV Club gives it a B+ but has this gem:

I like AV Club, mainly because it is Sarcastic Hipster Central and I'm a glutton for punishment.

I'm honestly shocked they graded it that high!

The writer says it's not a review per se, but this description of C&G is just gorgeous.

Rolling Stone, 3.5/5 http://www.rollingstone.com/music/al...d-gold-w503471

Not entirely sure where they lost stars since the review is very positive.

They always hedge their bets in case the album they are judging stands the test of time. It gives them breathing room when people point out how they've trashed classic albums on first release.

RS (like Pitchfork) is known for being overly critical in their non-musician-written reviews. They have to justify their paychecks, I guess.

damn, that's embarrassing

I mean... at least the reviewer noticed that Dave's vocals sounded a bit different on Sunday Rain, I guess?

They could've at least given the album an extra star for Dave's 'notes of grain' in Sunday Rain
