Great Review. Seriously. Thomas, you write some of the most inspired reviews on the site and that's not lip service.

One thing I will say: I really wonder how often throughout the course of a year, people proclaim something "the best album of the year". I'd just like to see a review that didn't stack a record alongside all other records released in a given year. It's August - lets give it til December to write lists.

I know you might not have been calling me out specifically - but this year, in reviews I've written, there is a casual mention in the Balance & Composure review of it being one of the best records of the year, and I hailed the Wonder Years record, obviously. But the TWY review was more general, and I never called it AOTY. This is the record I call my AOTY because I know it won't change.
Yeah, that wasn't a shot at you specifically - just an observation and criticism of reviews in general. (I'm certainly guilty of it too, btw.)

Hey, that review made me want to go listen to that album again. Awful punctuation aside.

Heh.
Yeah, i remember reading that review too - gonna grace us with a review of the new blink 182 album? Don't think you've written one yourself in a long time!
