This is nice and enjoyable but something bugs me a lot.

It's obvious we've heard this a thousand times before. Which does not mean its bad, but is it worthy of praise? - by now everyone knows how to create doom that's nice and easy on the ears. I'm sorry but I do require more from doom than just pleasant music and If we praise mediocre music we'll get just that.

Being an experienced musician in this style, the reviewer probably sees it in greater depth or judges different aspects of the music - I cannot explain the high marks that average albums receive in any other way. 9 is a very high mark.

yes, the reviewer is a musician himself, and he's been quite generous with his ratings lately.
Maybe being in the business and having to judge your colleagues isn't so easy a task...
