Yeah I was probably wasted. But I have always paid more attention to the meek 7.x ratings b/c they mean the reviewer is either dispassionate, out of their element, or unable to find preexisting consensus to inform their take. Whenever they hold back like that, you know the record is probably a decent showing. I mean probably forgettable? But a better sort of forgettable, that could potentially become memorable, versus the beautiful people/novelty value/stylistic ambulance-chasing BNM bands win with every time.
