Actually, they didn't use to give 4 stars reviews as much as they do now.

The solution to this is to surely stop reading Rolling Stone magazine reviews (?)

Actually they have given good reviews to good albums as I have seen them. The secret is to first produce a good album...

Re: Is Rolling Stone magazine capable of giving an album a good review?

I have to agree it does always seem like Rolling Stone gives many mainstream artist good reviews.
In fact, I don't see many singer-songwriters getting great reviews as well.
For example Tori Amos hasn't gotten a good review for her albums in almost a decade.
They haven't rated Sarah McLachlan great either and then don't rate one of her best albums to date, Surfacing.

But they did mention that Brandi Carlile was an artist to watch out about 5 years ago, so I guess that isn't too bad.

I love it when my favorite artists get good write ups, but I've never used any music critics opinions to determine what I actually buy- especially 'Rolling Stones'...lol

Probably, actually. 5 stars would mean perfection, and very few albums over the history of time have achieved perfection.

My problem is that it seems Rolling Stone is full of bitter people who hate their jobs with complete and utter passion where they feel that "loving" something uncool. How many 5/5 ratings have you seen from RS in the recent years? They\ only stuff they give 5/5 is to re-releases of classic stuff. I don't think I've seen a single NEW album get 5/5 in the past 2 years. That there is the definition of pretentiousness. Ok I take that back I think the U2 got a 5/5 last year but that is an example of RS selling out. Had it been any other band RS would have given it 4 max. If I couldn't find atleast 5-6 albums a year which are 5/5 I would stop listening to music. RS people should just quit their jobs and work in a field that interests them. They are not fans of music- they are just corporate shills who are more concerned with maintaining their "cool" image rather than doing actual reviews.
What? Their latest album was awful!

Didn't they give Brandy's album "Human" a good review?
