So fucking excited for this record. Great review. Really hope the production doesn't take me out of it like it did on their last two
the production is fantastic, sometimes Geoff is hard to hear but that's because they were going to for that vibe on that track. The production really brings out how rich musically this album is. It's encompassing.

I can see it working a lot more for a record as atmospheric as this, but the muddyness really didn't work for me on their last two. I'm stoked though, sounds like it's gona be pretty special
I think they found the perfect balance this time.

Agreed. I have a feeling this will be like the new Underoath CD; AP.net staff members see some unseen greatness in it which is greatly exaggerated. I like Thursday and Uř but I feel like this staff is partial to many of these pioneer/classic bands. The user review scores back me up.
the user review scores don't mean shit here cause no one in this thread has heard it.

I agree that this should be bought but Thursday has at least built a good career and there are younger bands that could honestly use the money more.
you are so off based here it's hilarious. Geoff has to work at a second job when they aren't touring because they don't make that much money.

The score is meant to represent that this album is absolutely incredible and worth your time, it's not suppose to represent 'oh man only 2% away from perfection!', cuz that's not how I do my ratings.

This isn't hockey: we don't retire numbers because no one else can ever be better than (insert album from the 60's).

Reviews aren't relative to everything else in the universe: he's giving a rating based on his evaluation of a record. If I got a 100% on a writing assignment, it doesn't mean no one else ever can get that high again or that if someone else gets a 100%, that they wrote the exact same paper as me.

The only way to fix the issue is to disable comments on reviews. If people want to say something about the rating or feel it's unfair, they can listen to the album and write their own review and post it on their blog or website or submit it to the user reviews on this site.

I don't get it, no one has even heard this record. Why does someone saying it's amazing have such a negative effect? You should be EXCITED someone liked an album this much and look forward to hearing it so you can formulate your own opinion on it...that's the point of a positive review.
I could kiss you on the mouth right now.
