Hey Thomas - You say "Common Courtesy is an easy step up from its predecessor, What Separates Me From You"... but you gave that album a 7.5. Which is higher than the 7 you gave Common Courtesy. That doesn't add up.
... granted I've only listened to CC a couple times thus far, but I feel WSMFY is a better album.
yeah i mean that was three years ago – i just don't have the same tastes i used to. i will admit to rating that album much higher than i should have because i used to have a soft spot for the band (this happened to me with a few reviews back a few years ago). in hindsight i'd give that record like a 5
