This review is really all over the place. I'm not a hardcore Phantogram fan, so don't think I'm taking anything personally here, but it needs to be reiterated: you cannot describe an album as "a miss in every sense of the word" and "painful" then say two-thirds of the tracks are "good", two or three are "can't miss" and give an overall score of 70%. That's not a credible way to go about reviewing something, because you are saying very contradictory things all at once. It's totally fine if you wanted more from the album, but this review comes off as rather ... to borrow your own descriptor, "histrionic".

You're missing the point. Even your latest re-phrasing, "awesome in places", is a FAR cry from "a miss in every sense of the word".

We're only trying to help, this is clearly inconsistent phrasing, even your attempts to explain yourself are confusing and contradictory, and leaving a lot of readers wondering just what on earth your position on the album really is. The *one* thing you should never come out of a review feeling totally confused about is the author's stance on the media they reviewed.
