 Must everything be original to be good? Must all albums be completely trailblazing to be worthwhile? I know you gave this a "B," Mr. Collins, but it seems like you're apologizing for its traditional pop arrangements. There are a handful of songs on here that achieve a level of quality within their respective genre, no matter how predictable; and quality is a sign of a good album, not whether it reinvents the wheel.

 I was thinking about this review again this morning and wondering why you expected experimentalism because it involves The Minus 5. They're just a pop band, too! Oh well, no one else cares, this review got buried in two minutes and isn't even on the "recent reviews" list despite it being one day old. Guess I should go listen to my Lightning Bolt album.
