 At the risk of starting some raging debate here... 7 = too high? This read more like a 6 to me.

 I was actually thinking about that this morning. Let me put it this way: this particular 7 is meant to indicate that despite having most of the elements of a great, great album (especially a bunch of really excellent songs, "Drill Sargeant" in particular has been in my head all day) it is less than the sum of those parts. I was equally tempted to give it an 8 and a 6, hence 7.
