As someone who's never heard of Sweetman, I read that review and didn't find anything offensive about it. He clearly loves the album. The digs were very slight, and, actually pretty spot on. Neil IS the better tunesmith, and Tim is more likely to throw out a lightweight song than the OCD Neil. Most of Tim's songs are great, but he is more likely, at least to me, to have a few misses on his albums than Neil. Not a slam at all, because his highs are VERY high!
Again, this is read in a vacuum, not knowing what else he as written/said about the Finns.
