The album reviews on this website are starting to feel really inflated. 9.5 for production? That is fanatical fan worship.

reviewers dont like the percentage scale, we stick to a 1-10 scale these days, so we fill in everything as the same score to make the 1-10 outcome what we want it

you are aware that he just rated it 9.5, and then filled it in across-the-board, right?
Many of the reviewers don't bother choosing a score for each category anymore.

Did you notice that every category is a 9.5?

We moved away from categorical reviews over six months ago. We review by overall score out of ten now, and the categories just mimic whatever our overall score is. I gave it a 9.5.

Yeah, I'd say this is a producer's job as well - there's plenty of hands-off producers who don't touch the songs, structurally.

The most telling aspect to me is my consistent need to turn up the volume during my favorite parts. I should feel surrounded by the music - not that it's being blasted at me. But, at the end of the day, it doesn't affect my love for the record.
i think its pretty telling how strong the songs themselves are that they're able to (for the most part) overshadow the production end.

We actually moved to /10 review scores because the new AP.net won't feature the categories - wanted to make the change early.

Precisely, my dear Watson.

I'm not so annoyed that we have to explain it (though you'd think by now, people would get it). I'm more annoyed at the way people address it, like the comment above, in its Reddity righteousness.

even more annoying that all people seem to care about is a score, and complaining about something you clearly addressed in the review.

This band should tour with North Korea. They have a similar sound in my opinion.
