I just had to create an account after reading this to tell you how much of a MORON you are mr Robson... Not only is this review completely and utterly full of inacuracies (You didn't even name the right band member as the lead singer), but your approach to journalism is horribly despicable. Your apparent lack of research is extremely evident. You decided you would say what all the songs were about without reading what they ACTUALLY are about. You didn't even look into why the band has a optimistic and positive viewpoint on their record. They've talked about it in tons of interviews that Ive read. Its even on WIKIPEDIA. Its because they were in a deep depression at the time of writing it and were trying to dig themselves out through their music. You even misquoted the lyrics from "last time" which you said made them "loose all credibility" and I'm pretty sure you don't even know what the word "stilted" means... You are the type of "music journalist" that makes me believe real music journalism is dead. I hope to god this isn't your day job because SERIOUSLY MAN, YOU SUCK. Ive seen them live, met the band, and read real reviews where they actually ask the band questions and dig deeper into their lyrics. They are dark stories with an optimistic viewpoint. You probably googled a couple reviews, looked at a couple of photos, listened to the beginning of each song and then called it day. Your approach to "music journalism" is really disgusting and horribly destructive. You are terrible at being a journalist, thinking, reading, listening, and writing. It's so disappointing that anyone would give you a voice on a website I USED to respect. But, you should give yourself a huge pat on the back because this review made me remember why I never listen to bloggers with no credibility and zero substance.
