Album Rating: 2.0
lol flatz I read your review for Refused to other day really randomly and it sorta sucked. I'm assuming that was an earlier review. I'd be interested to read an updated one, but obviously not til December when the new albums that need reviews stop trickling in.
I was split between a 2 and a 2.5 on this album but I downgraded because this will be up on metacritic, where most all albums are given generally favorable metascores (only one "red" album this entire year).
And yes, the wordplay is inviting isn't it, maybe I'll use it for the headline. Nice to see people talking so much about the album.
