The review was unfairly written. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on an album but I'm actually shocked because I know he's been a big Transit fan.
It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not. If you don't like it, you don't like it. I'm a big Say Anything fan and I thought Anarchy My Dear was atrocious. I'm still a big Say Anything fan and am looking forward to the next record. Being a fan doesn't mean you have to love everything they release.
I can't say Anything about the album because I haven't heard it, but I'd say this is a fair review from a big fan who was disappointed by a new record. I am definitely hoping that I disagree with him, personally haha
