I give it a very solid 7.

With Decide instead of Wedding it would be an 8 ;)

Tough question. I have been mostly listening to a "custom" version of Hotspot — with some tracks replaced with their instrumentals, some removed altogether, some added (e.g. Decide). I am playing that maybe a dozen times a day. The "outtakes" aren't getting played much if at all. Don't even know if this qualifies me to rate the album.

I think almost of us have missed at least, on of the classic PSB banger songs with orchestra on it (ex: Integral) but I think Stuart Price is not the best producer for than kind of songs.

7 from me, better then Electric, not as good as Super.

I'm also guilty of swapping out Wedding in Berlin for the instrumental.

A good solid 7, take wedding in berlin off and you get a much better score. About on a par with Super but nowhere near the sheer brilliance of Electric.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I've fallen in love with this album quicker than any other since I became a fan. A solid 9.

It’s an easy 9 for me. It gripped me straight away and never let go. In my top 5 albums

A couple of tracks deserve classic status but the big plus is that the album flows remarkably well and quality is pretty consistent. So it gets an eight from me.
