00:03 - Korah Yeah, MS ratings on new albums are totally f****ed! You just have to watch ratings from 2000 and ratings from 2016! Metal was'nt so much better than today releases.
23:53 - Czerny Reiter There's a dearth of reviewers on the site and most of what gets reviewed ends up getting a good grade (on the grounds that pro-bono reviewers mostly review what appeals to them).
23:48 - Overrwatcher I feel as if SSUS's review backlash is a perfect example of this. When he gave a 2/10 people didn't say much. When he gave a 9/10 people questioned his review integrity.
23:42 - Overrwatcher I will always bring up BMTH's "There Is A Hell" in this regard. Very well received literally everywhere but MS. Here it's one of the lowest rated albums in the database.
23:38 - Overrwatcher Bands can put out similar quality records to 10 years ago yet get over 1 point less. People have been much more negative recently. And MS also seems to shit on some albums at random.

Is it me or are Neurosis just generally shit at making affordably varied tours, or that their promoters/ managers are as uptight as you can shove your jeans up your arse (believe it or not, but I am on the verge of the latters...)
Just festivals and festivals, and the odd capital city dates!?! Have they ever had a formiddible, self-centered tour around Europe at least that was extremely thorough?
Hmmm I'll try to get to that Denmark gig. I'm still pissed that they can't fix a date for the south of Sweden since it seems they just visit Stockholm (and maybe Gothenburg if they feel nice about it).
