Why is Waves Abbey Road Vinyl so disliked?

I picked up Waves AR vinyl on sale despite the bad reaction it seemed to get on here. I feel like it’s a great in the context of my hip hop/boom bap/lofi project. It adds a nice glue, really adaptive noise, and has a nice grit to it. It also seems to round off some of the unnatural ultra-high and ultra low frequencies or something. I typically use the DJ cartirdge and table because that has the most colorization.

For those who dislike it, why? It probably would sound poor on lots of types of genres, but I feel like the plug in overall adds nice glue in the right contexts. Sounds great when interacting with my MPC2000 Akai S1000 sounds. I know Tycho uses (or used it) on his mix bus. I feel like any kind of hazy, gritty aesthetic is complimented with AR nicely.
