What he really says is that hi likes Fishcotheque better than Big Questions, NOT that he likes the post-Max stuff better. In fact the last bit implies that Big Questions was a departure from his usually high quality.

Not that it's not OK to like post-Max stuff better... just that I don't think that's what this reviewer meant.
