There's a difference between a well thought-out and articulate argument for an artist's shortcomings and a bloated, drunken diatribe.

I think a good review serves a very important purpose - it helps us listen, or read, or watch, better. We notice stuff we might not otherwise have noticed. Unfortunately, good reviews are about as rare as good movies, good songs, and good books.

Considering it's from a Web site apparently dedicated to punk and indie music, it's a pretty positive review.
