Great review as always, Drew. I was really hoping you'd be the one to do Bubblegum. I feel like I've been making a lot of the same sonic comparisons, which just tells me that Kevin & Co did a great job making a seriously evocative in-your-face album.

Out of curiosity, what brought down some of these ratings from 10 to 9? Were there specific issues (i.e. a few lyrics that feel out of place) or is this a case of the teacher having strict rules about giving away perfect scores?

Scores are generally arbitrary, but to award a perfect score is something of a big deal regardless. Do you think this is a perfect record? Is it among your all time favorites? When I think of a "10" that's what I stack it up against. I can't speak for Drew, obviously, but that's kind of where I come from.
mmm this is basically the response I expected. I'm always just curious how people get to the conclusion that something is knocking on perfection's door but not quite over the threshold, because I hear a lot of different explanations.

Personally (after maybe 6-7 listens including two critical listens for lyrics) I would have tilted 10 and given the lyrics 10. The tilt is because of my massive crush on him, but lyrically I can't remember the last album that I felt was as evocative and raw as this. Maybe it's because I'm taking a gap year and feeling all kinds of angst for my future.

GAH i want to like this guys voice so much but just can not sink my teeth into it. will try again!
I had a little trouble at the start as well. Is the problem that the timbre of his voice doesn't mesh with what he's singing, or is it just the voice in general?
