The "on album" score mainly refers to the completeness of the presentation, on album, with consideration to the total music that was available for him to review. He's not "de-scoring" the music, he's basically saying "Disney, you're a bunch of assholes for not putting all this on one CD like it should be." Also note that he gave it a 4-star score, which is extremely high for a freshmen attempt like Daft Punk. It says a lot; you just have to know what he's saying.
