You're probably right. Remember, the scores represent a comparison with all a cappella recordings currently available
at the time the album was reviewed. If your work today is comparable to your work from 2006, then you haven't done much learning or growing over the last five years.
A better way to look at this would be to infer that the quality of R&B's work over the years has remained consistent, and probably even improved. Far from resting on the laurels of their previous accomplishments, they continue to push themselves to put out a good product--and this is to be commended.
