Girlfriend loves it. Bad Hair Day is probably her favorite album, she just loves that squeezebox sound. Especially with Syndicated and The Alternative Polka.

Did you derive your overall score of 9/10 by actually calculating the average of every single track, or are you just generally saying 9/10 based on a gut feeling? If the former, please add two additional digits (eg, 9.15/10). If the latter, please do the math.

Pretty clear it is just a number he slapped on each one based on his own opinion of that track. Schwag, you got WAY too much time on your hands.
