Woops, didn't see that the author already responded to Jeremy's comment. Makes my response unnecessary. Sorry.
Jeremy, this article is more an examination of the band's personal dynamic than a review of the album. The author mostly avoids critiquing the album because that's not the point. Though, he does clearly shine a positive light on the band and their latest offering. If this were intended to be an album review of Mines, I'd agree with you. However, I found it to be a very interesting and informative peek into the dynamic of the band and their unusual process. I knew they were a bit "dysfunctional" (I feel wrong using that word since their dysfunction produces such great music), but I had no idea just how much.
