To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I loved Bastille's first album. Listened to it almost nonstop for weeks. Stood for hours to see them live after way too many openers. The songs were stuck in my head, lyrics haunted and intrigued me. But this album just totally falls flat for me. I listened through it twice the day it came out and haven't thought about it since (until a FB post reminded me to write this review).
