Excellent review, although I disagree with half of your most critical points.

There is too much programming/sequencing on this EP.

I couldn't get into this EP at all. And I really don't get the big fuss over Jonny Craig, to me his vocals are just blah

Good, well-written review, but the album is not a 49%.

Member ratings has a more accurate score.

I agree withe every single point you make. Thank you for not being a fanboy. Too much programming, can't hear the background music when you need to (not like it's much worth hearing anyway), and the vocals sounded wanting for more.
Also, fantastically written my friend.

I'm really curious; what city/country were you offered a job in?

I didn't like the structure of this review at all. 14 paragraphs? Really?

I do agree with the separate vocal comment though. They really could of/should of produced a much better Ep considering the talent they all have. Viola Lion is the only song that still gets played while the rest lay practically untouched.

It was Toronto, Canada.

Yeah it's a little lower than I intended. This is the first review I've posted through AP and the scoring is pretty different to how I do it myself for my own purposes. I tried to transpose it as best I could, but it clearly didn't work too well. I'll take this as a learning exercise and just adopt this system in future!

It's a fair comment, my reviews aren't usually this long. I considered editing it down, but I thought it was all valid so I left it as it was.
I'll take it on board for future reviews though. Thanks for the feedback.

You do know that you can edit the score, right?

Oh, and whoever said your review is too long is wrong, it's really not. Just combine a few paragraphs together.
