How is it possible to critique objectively an album you've waited 30 years for?

Firstly, you resist comparing its shiny new songs with others such as "Shot by Both Sides" and "A Song From Under the Floorboards", which are a part of the very fabric of your being. And secondly, you decide whether it would measure up were it the work of some clever-dick newcomers. This darkly amusing, awkward yet oddly graceful return of the ostensibly dead, more than measures up.
