Only 80%!?! That scares me

haha. the sad thing though, is that any band should be very excited to get an 8/10 (or 80%) rating. This site just rates EVERYTHING so darn high. Ive reviewed records just diy on blogs and for friends for years and I was a lot more reserved with 8s and 9s. There are a lot of reviews on here where people say the record is great except this, this, and this and then give it an 85% and that just doesnt make sense to me.

On a scale of 1-10, 5 should always be the point of reference (average, worth checking out but nothing ground breaking) but if anyone gives a record a 5 or 6 on here people assume it sucks which doesnt make much sense. I mean I consider 6 a solid score - the album is above average which is a compliment. Small gripe I know, but thats how it goes. This is how I alloted scores:

5 decent/average
6 good/above average
7 very good
8 great
9 nearly perfect
10 perfect (extremely rare of course)

Once again, I know its silly and trivial, and I am not knocking the site, I think its a great resource and I obviously read it haha, but I feel you have to take the rating number with a grain of salt. I mean an 8 to mean means it is a great record normally - so its funny that on this site if someone sees an 8/10 they are worried about how good the record is :P

and PS Clintoto this is not knocking you! because I feel the same way, *on this site* if I see something 80 or below it comes across as negative, just stating I wasnt used to that before I started reading this site a few years ago

Wow, awesome so many people are digging this! Very good review and I really like this band, need to pick this album up.

Also, their label, Big Scary Monster Records, has some really cool other bands on it.

Totally agree, big scary monsters has some great UK talent on is roster. Check out the awe inspiring Yndi Halda (Icelandic for Enjoy Eternal Bliss!) one of the best post rock bands out there right now.

Musically, this reminds me of 31knots for some reason, although I think this is better than 31knots's new release.
