I was just thinking about doing that, thanks!

We could update this constantly. Btw could you add the rating of the reviews in bold or something?


Edit: sticky?

Yeah, I don't remember there being anywhere near the amount of reviews posted for Octahedron as there have been for other albums. Are we just going more and more out of our way to look for them, or did this much more people really decide to review the album?

Oh yeah, I didn't order the articles in any specific way. Is that okay or does someone want me to order it alphabetically, by rating, etc.?

What about non-English ones? It would be interesting to collect the ratings from around the world at least.

Definitely, just send me a link in a PM and I'll add it in. If possible, do you think you can provide a translation as well?

First couple of German Reviews have been added. Translations would be awesome. Just post the translations and I'll link it up. You can post it here or in the reviews topic if it has one.

Do you have a link or transcription of the actual review as opposed to just the numbers?

there's a review in NME (physical magazine) from week before last that gave it 7/10 - I haven't got access to scan it in any time soon though, has anyone else got this?
