An entirely flawless album to me. I found this album at the perfect time and it shaped my musical taste for years after.

If they had cut out a few of the atmospheric tracks, I would have rated it even higher. Some great tracks here, but some just aren't for me and keep it from being a truly stand out album.

Not the sound I want out of this band. I don't expect another "Is This It", but this doesn't even seem like they are trying anymore.

Hey rob, do you think you could give me the ability to add albums again? I’m not going to spam add any more and it’s more convenient for me as a musician.

Hey rob! I was wondering if you’d consider adding a list feature that automatically ranks albums based on score? That way ranked lists based on score (which is most of them) wouldnt have the inconvenience of forcing the user to add and album then change the order every single time? Just a suggestion. Thank you!
