I don't think you praise them nearly enough to justify the 4. You talk way more about the mental state of the singer than the album really. Also saying stuff like

Simplistic yet satisfying


doesn't really make this seem like an excellent album (which at least in my opinion should be considered well above being simply "satisfying").

In my opinion this reads much more like a 3 but that's just me.

Hm, I thought you were going to say it came off as a 4.5 actually...

And me not mentioning the music enough is a valid complaint, but I did that purposefully for two reasons, a) because I personally found the other things i.e. madness, lyricism, general extremism the main intrigue here and b) because I'm not all too versed in this type or era of music and I've found it's just better to just stick with what I know.

And I do offer a little explanation for the lack of music explanation, I think:

the dynamic, burst-fire punk-rock is impressive in its own right but is shimmied to the background as the “issues” of the artist, to say the least, remain always in the foreground


But yeah, legitimate critique. I'll keep that in mind. Trust me, it's not a case of rating inflation (or at least I don't think so haha) as I feel pretty strongly about albums I rate 4.

Oh, and as for the "simplistic yet satisfying" quote... I didn't mean to say that the album is "merely satisfying" I meant to say that "despite it being simplistic, it is still satisfying (and more implied)." Sorry if that doesn't make sense haha, but thanks for the help!

the review reads like a 4 for sure

there doesn't need to be much clarification on how it sounds - this is a punk record, once you've heard one song you'll have a good idea what the rest sound like

it makes the review more interesting when i'm not being told what punk music sounds like
