Drones Album Reviews

Recommended Posts

Allmusic review

 

3-and-half stars, so another 7/10.

 

Pretty poor review tbh, short and doesn't talk specifically about any songs except Drill Sergeant?!

 

The track picks are the usual suspects, DI, Psycho, Handler and Drones?!?!

There is probably an embargo placed on negative reviews until the album is officially released, like they do with movies.

 

Nope, there isn't.

His job is to give a subjective analysis of the album, not to agree with general consensus. Is it harsh of me to think Green Day are wank? Nope! It's just an opinion.

 

no, you misunderstand, what I meant is that he gives it a pretty decent review, then seems more harsh on his letter than the actual review imo, reading the review I would have predicted a B or B-, but he gives it a C instead

B for Consequence of Sound would mean giving the album a score between 7 and 8 out of 10, so it's not harsh at all.

Having DEAD INSIDE screamed in your face in the first second of the album counts as an "in your face opener" to me paha

 

He probably meant the whole song, not just the opening moment of it. :D

I'm waiting for the Pitchfork review now. They hate muse aha. The better could be a 6 but I doubt about it.

What the actual fuck is this review? Apparently Muse have written a song called "Hurricane"?

 

Also, another 4/5, this time from the Evening Standard: http://www.standard.co.uk/stayingin/music/muse--drones-album-review-the-band-at-their-monumental-best-10299650.html

Metascore dropped to 74 :LOL::LOL:. But, to be fair, they updated the mixed reviews, there are a lot of 7s & 8s floating around.

Has Fantano done his review yet? I disagree with him fairly frequently, but he normally has something smart to say.

 

He said it's coming this week

A lot of those publications probably won't be counted toward it though. I still think it'll land around where it is on the 70-75 range

Yeah, what the hell is up with that? And that Entertainment Weekly review, how can one even call that a review? :rolleyes:

Many of the positive published reviews should be counted though, like The Rolling Stones, The Boston Globe, Telegraph, Allmusic, and so on.

Yeah, that's my bet too. But the last reviews they updated are the mixed ones. The rest are 70-80 more or less, so I expect it to end in that range.
