Top 10 Sputnik Review Types

this is a definitive ranking of every type of review on this website. this was objectively determined using a complex formula.
10The Tallest Man on Earth
I Love You. It's a Fever Dream.


10th: concise review offering relevant information about the artist and album using clear and evocative language.
9The Gaslight Anthem
Handwritten


9th: clearly rushed new release review that only references the singles and contains multiple factual errors
8Emery
...In Shallow Seas We Sail


8th: hyperbolic 5-star review submitted 40 minute after an album is released
7Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


7th: contrarian low review of a beloved indie album by someone whose taste pie chart is just minor variations of death metal
6Agalloch
The Mantle


6th: glowing review of a post-metal album by someone whose taste pie chart is just minor variations of indie-rock
5Brand New
Deja Entendu


5th: 4000-word weepy personal anecdote about the reviewer growing up as a child of divorce or going through his first breakup that occasionally throws in references to songs to justify submitting a diary entry as a review.
4Yellowcard
Southern Air


4th: sowing season yellowcard review
3Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me


3rd: clearly unnecessary review of a record that already has 20. provides no new insight and just straightforwardly describes it like no has ever reviewed it.
2Hinder
Extreme Behavior


2nd: 5-star review of a universally reviled radio-rock album filled with endearing typos and no adjectives longer than 4 letters.
1Bob Dylan
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan


1st: 2006-era track-by-track review filled with ?bizarre? formatting errors and featuring no summary, a “recommended tracks” section that’s 9 songs long, and a word count over 2500. bonus points if it's still the default review and/or if it includes the album's ranking on the rolling stone top 500 list.
