Who are you to tell Thomas or anyone else how much they can love an album, especially when you haven't even heard it? this is such a shitty attitude to have. You come into this review thread and offer nothing constructive to it.
Never told Thomas how much he can love it. Where did I do that again? I'm glad he loves it. I specifically said he should "shout it from the rooftops." Direct quote.
Also, after the 4 seconds it took you to rush to his rescue, I put in an edit praising the quality of the writing, which is something I know he's worked really hard on. Constructive!
My contention is that it's silly to start throwing around hyperbole for an album that hasn't been out that long. Saying that he's "the future of rock and roll", saying that he's on a par with what Springsteen did in the 70's. Maybe when it shakes out, that'll be true. Who knows? But it's certainly way too early to say that about any
album. We haven't even finished 2011 yet. Let alone had time to establish the kind of historical context Thomas is throwing around.
