I am looking for a work that almost means "positive comments" or "positive review". It should be subtle, so it cannot be very explicit that the review is positive. Simply hint it.
Some examples where this word or phrase would be used:
The movie critic gave the actor 'positive comments'.
The journal editor gave the authors 'positive comments'.
The sentence I actually want to compose is the following:
The most recent, positive comments from the referee are included in this letter.
but it's too obvious that I'm emphasizing the word positive. I would like it to be more subtle.
