I'd love to hear the kind of music that critic writes, if he even possesses that ability.

Yes, I'm a bit biased, but what I've heard thus far is not something I'd rate as "average".

Well said!

He dissed TSIAN, and I think it is pretty damn good. So, good review, bad review, I don't really go by them. Its nice to read good reviews, but you know there will be bad ones. If I like it, thats all that matters to me!

The way I look at it, no reviewer would ever give the Foos 5 stars for anything, simply because the reviewers have a lot of opinions about the band and it's history. It seems to be impossible for them to review something purely on it's merit.

People listen to albums to be swept away by the experience, not so they can sit and ponder the cultural significance of the artist in question.

I personally add a half star to any review that seems hung up on biographical data.

Irrespective of history, to give 5 stars you would also have to think every song on the album is worthy of five stars? I don't think I own a single album where I can say that is the case.

Look at the "The Line as a 3rd single" thread and you see most people are not so keen on one of the 3 tracks released so far.

But I agree, I listen to music to live the experience, feel the emotion - not to determine whether it is any good or not
