Bobby had said (or at least suggested) that the fact that it was "timely"  
should be worth some extra points. That is the only area of disagreement. 
The critic who gave the recording one star apparently didn't think (or  did 
not consider) that "timeliness" is a substitute for artistic merit. I  cannot 
speak to why the critic did not like the recording, and I haven't even  heard 
it yet. We're just debating the single point of whether an artistic effort  
should be given extra credit for timeliness.
