I think you better stop doing that, judging from her previous album (Reputation, Lover) it always end up with bad score since it annoys the critics when fans being too pushy.  :rip:

But they don’t count multiple reviews from the same publication

They do allow this (see three Sputnik reviews for JT), but it doesn’t matter here since Kitty’s is written for The Observer. I’ve followed MC for years - her reviews are always added on Mondays

It happens sometimes - stuff is added later. If someone emails Metacritic, they’ll add it.

Yeah, sometimes they forget to add or don’t add reviews for some reason. 
 

Jessie Ware got a 9/10 from The Line of Best Fit and they never added the review, even after I emailed them. :/

This better not get stuck at 24 reviews, I swear.

I think it counts as The Observer  which is a different publication under the same news media group and AOTY org already added it into their critics score.

https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/264058-taylor-swift-folklore.php

 

I'm not sure if they always count for Metacritic, but they have in the past, e.g. Ellie Goulding a few weeks ago.

I hope The Quietus comes through and offsets that The Observer review :dies:


I find it funny that both mixed mainstream reviews right now have praised the songwriting but taken issue with the production (or rather, a style of music production they don't enjoy), which just goes to show that one man's treasure is truly another man's trash.


It reminds me of a lot of the criticism in some 1989 reviews, but I digress.

Metacritic kind of are a mess and genuinely do miss things :rip: 

It kind of makes me respect them less.

 

Kitty's reviews are sometimes added for the Observer. The Gaslighter review might have been excluded because she reviewed 2 albums in that article and it's not clear if the score is for both. But they randomly didn't add her HAIM review for no reason at all.

88's a better number than 89 anyway, even if it's one point less. Dddd.

Maybe the review was too late, if I'm not mistaken they only count reviews within 3 months after release. Need confirmation
