I usually disagree with quibbles on Andrew's reviews because it's all so subjective. But I kind of agree with Pressure in this case.

The wording seems lukewarm on the album overall, and with the exception of the single and the closing track, there always seems to be a 'but' for most tracks 'the chorus didn't grab me', 'this one is filler", "not one of the album's best moments" (I'm paraphrasing).

Yet the album is supposed to be much stronger than Firebirth and the score is in the red. But I do understand Andrew too - sometimes, the issues you might have with some songs won't be enough to dock the points, even if to the outside reader you're coming across as extra critical.

Interesting debate on how to best convey reviews.
