I understand the average, but how in the hell are you ranking this album so high? Musicianship 7.75? What constitutes a lower score than that? And yes, I've heard the album, more times than I'd like to admit. To each their own, but jesus.
While I do agree that Joe gave this album an unprecedentedly high score, your argument holds very little validity.
"...terrible at math and a lazy reviewer." ~ I love how you also say how Joe was a lazy writer. Consider how he actually wrote the review and how you're just here complaining...yeah, you're real productive, aren't you? Math? Well, the review is to the account of the reviewer, if you don't think it deserves the score, then go troll on the user score and give all the parameters a 0.25 like everyone else is.
" i've never seen an album get lower than an 80 on here" ~ You're, again, being the lazy one here. One, you don't bother to capitalize, and two, you didn't bother to go to the top of the page and click on "reviews" and check the validity of your statement
. Wait, maybe you're partially number blind and can only see average scores about 79 %.
Reviews in the past few days with less than 80 %: Various Artists, Calm Blue Sea, Livian, Apophenia, Brighter Than A Thousand Suns, Astronautilis. That's the first page. "If you talk, you better walk, you better back your shit up..."
"...first four songs are so terrible..." ~ Hm, maybe the rest of the album can make up for them? But it only makes sense to infallibly deem an album horrible by judging 27 % of it.
