It's not a big deal here. Just everyone's tastes are different. It's a damn fine album that rated 86% on 1st spin and gradually grew to a solid 92%. 100% is the ultimate disc. Is this it?

100% to me says "this is a damn fine album that I'm loving and will continue to love for a long time to come. There's nothing I'd change about it and recommend it to everyone."

 

I can say that with a 92% rating!!!! :rofl2::lol:

Yeah, to each their own. My simple take on it is that if every song on an album is 100% perfect, then the album deserves a 100% score. I'm yet to encounter this album, though I personally have rated Cauterize's 'So far from real' a 99%. Which is a heavy display for "to each their own."

 

For the record, I threw a 91% at Degreed.

I guess the difference between 5/5 or 10/10 scoring systems, and the M.R. method of giving a % out of 100, is why we are obsessed with it.

 

I usually accept 5 star ratings or 10/10 that you normally see everywhere, because it offers a rather limited scale to differentiate so easily, and can be treated a little more "casual". But having 100 points to play with presents a lot more opportunities for in-depth analysis and dropping points for the odd little fault here or there, so giving a perfect 100 could be taken less seriously and possibly even affect the credibility of the reviewing system as a whole.

 

That's probably why it generates discussion, and I can think of loads of albums that are brilliant and I'd play for a long time to come, but still wouldn't get 100% perfection.

Yeah you're right.
Anyone going to give a 9.9/10 as a rating?
5/10 9/10 10/10 - easy with whole numbers

 

Rating out of 5 is harder because many would see 4/5 as 80%

+1 (except for the Cauterize comment)

 

This has been discussed to death here and of course is all opinion.

 

Some folk tend to rate an album 10/10 or 100% if they really love every song which is fine.

 

I (as does Geoff) tend to rate every song individually and not every song across the album can be an absolute killer - there will always be a lull somewhere and that's why (up until now), I've not encountered a 100% album.....pretty damned close, but not 100%.

 

That said this is a killer album and well worthy of a score around or in excess of 90%.

 

In fact lets just summarise : best album of 2015 so far

 

Is that easier ;-)

err 100 ? 92 ? 91 ? definitely way too overrated, the correct answer is 83.3 :D

Many things overrated this year....this is not one of them.

100 = perfection, but 10/10 gives more room to move? What's perfection on that scale then? 11? 12?

 

Anyway, I'm happy with the scores I hand out. Very few 100s and very few over 95....mostly in the 70-89 range, which is solid album and important to fans of the artist.

 

If it's shit...I say so, that's the most important aspect.

All I know is that the 100% rating made me get off my ass I finally order the damn cd.

 

When I see a 100% on MR I don't expect it to become the greatest ever, but I know if I'm already a fan, I'm gonna love it.

You'll have to start giving out "This Is Spinal Tap" styled ratings... This one goes up to 11, because it's better than the one that got 10.

I'm just happy Andrew has the ammunition album in this year. I want to include it in my best of 2015.

 

I'd say the trixter is 100 percent. Can't stop playing that one.

Trixter would be close to 100% if i was rating the last 4 songs ;-)

'For you' itself chops about 10% off the score of that album...

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
