Are We Becoming Nit-Picky?


#1

Everyone has their own opinions and score ratings.
However, judging by the main page of new releases, 10 albums/EPs have scored less by User Score than the higher ratings by critics. Even some of the Top 10 Critic rated albums of this year have been scored less by users.

Which begs me to ask based on the user score, are we really becoming nit-picky with music?
Or do we know better than Critics?

A lot of critics have a bias. Having been involved in the sector, many publications are inclined to rate favourable or unfavourably certains acts, or genres. If user ratings do not reflect critical acclaim, this is, more often than not, the cause.
