Of course if you said his songs were a load of bollocks it'd be entirely different.

You get the same kind of ambiguity with "bomb", according to exactly how its phrased. And to say you were "chuffed" about something is competely confusing, because it can equally mean you like it a lot or you dislike it a lot, even when phrased identically.
