Every so often I read a music review like this one, and I never know what to think.
Part of me wants to roll my eyes at how they have used the release of a fairly popular record to show everyone how creative they can be in the context of a review. That part of me doesn't really care to read their assessment of the band up to this date, or where they fit with a Chrysler commercial. Just tell me what you think of the album. I don't relate to you metaphors. They may be well-conceived, but they don't seem very universal. And I don't care.
The other part of me thinks that this is exactly how I might write this type of review. Take an interesting angle. Make it not so conventional. Start paragraphs with "The Lyrics!" All that sort of stuff.
My conclusion from all this is that I kind of hate myself. Which I guess I knew already, but here is further proof.
