Mariola, you really shouldn’t base your argument on metacritic reviews. Music is so personal. It’s all about what it means to you.
I am firmly in the camp that Neil’s recorded output since Time on Earth has not been as consistently wonderful to my ears as that which came in the 10-15 years before, but the metacritic scores don’t agree with what does and does not speak to me.
Just because “professional critics” (whatever that means) rate Out of Silence over Lightsleeper doesn’t mean I am wrong to think exactly the opposite.
