2015 Ratings (so far)

Recommended Posts

 

 

Rating should also be accompanied by your current mood:

 

When you're in the mood to 'smash shit up' this rating will be represented by SSU

When you're in the mood for 'lets go driving' this rating is represented by LGD

When you're in the mood to 'make sweet loving' this rating shall be represented by MSL.

 

Add in drinks consumed aswell i think, eg DC 6 equals six beers consumed at time of rating)

 

 

For example

 

Murderdrdolls - Beyond The Valley

82% (10K, 5F, SSU 97%, LGD 89%, MSL 13%, DC 6)

 

This way you can truly judge the mood of an album

 

 

 

:rofl::rofl2::lol:

That's actually amazing! From now on, that's how you rate albums!

That should be our board project.

 

Rate 1988 with today's grading system.

 

How many are willing to try?

We should keep workshopping the perfect ratings system until Geoff gets to V or so ;)

1989 is more difficult.

 

I boiled it down to around 100 releases which would score 80% and above.

lol, I couldn't imagine anything worse in life than looking through my entire CD collection and selecting all discs from a certain year to review... or even to look through MP3's and trying to find all from one specific year (aside from 2011 to 2015, which I have sorted as I go along)! That in itself would take months. ;)

 

I'm going A-Z in my melodic rock / AOR / glam CD collection, then A-Z through my modern rock CD collection. Then all my CDRs (unsorted) and then my unsorted MP3's (which I also do in-between, on the train). As I said, it'll take a decade but it's the only comprehensive way to do it. :)

There's never a definite list so it's all cool. I don't have my collection properly documented so I'll use yours to see how many classics there are that year!

Hey good idea on the 80s album rating.

I'll try it out someday because I still like to pull out those old albums now and then :)

Now and then? Those old albums are my bread and butter. As good as some of these new albums are, nothing really touches the golden era.

haha i think maybe those old classic albums were overplayed back in the days so I need a good rotation with the new albums man

95% for Revolution Saints and 60% for Issa??? WTF?!

 

I'm surprised you dig the Revolution Saints one as much as you do, because musically it is a nice ballsy sound, but at it's heart it's still a pretty light AOR album in terms of the song writing and lyrics. I like the balls of Revolution Saints, but definitely prefer the writing class of the Martin guys on the Issa disc. I dunno, the albums are very different, but a 35% different between the two?? That really blows my mind.

 

Anyway, like I said with Eclipse, if you score that Revolution Saints disc at 95% by the end of the year I will buy your entire top 50 list for you!!! ;) I'm predicting that'll be below Eclipse for me, which I rated 84%. Probably just on the 80% mark for me.

Rev Saints light AOR lol, you must be listening to a different album to me ;-)

 

I havent rated any disc so far this year, and maybe won't rate any at all full spot.....but I could easily see this achieving 90% - not a weak track in sight and there at least 5 or 6 utter killers, including the cover (which I usually hate, but this is brilliant and an improvement on the original).

 

If anything the disc gets better on each listen so I can't see that assessment reducing.

 

DC's vocals throughout are inspired and DA's guitars are off the scale.

 

A very special album indeed imo.

That ISSA is so weak it does nothing for me at all. Her vocals are not that good and music is just weak.

 

My Issa Ratings:
Crossfire 5/10
New Horizon 7/10
Raintown 5.5/10
Long Time Coming 4/10
Fight Fire with Rain 7/10
Heartbeat 6.5/10
Electric Lights 4.5/10
Ghost Inside My Heart 7/10
Red Lights 6.75/10
We Rise 6.25/10
Only You 6.5/10
Total Avg: 60%

There's about 4 sappy ballads (3 in a row, too, I think) that could have been lifted off any Journey album. The rockers are good, but I can't see how you guys are getting such high ratings with a handful of pretty by-the-numbers ballads involved. Like I said, I'll be stunned if the ratings for this stay as high as the initial ones, once it's had time to sink it.

 

Musically, I did say this was well ballsy enough. But yeah, in terms of a lot of the song writing, it does remind me of a much lighter AOR, just with a heavier music track. At times it is actually just like a heavy Journey album.

I get what you are saying Geoff,, but a "heavier Journey" to me is "Melodic Rock" So I will take it also!

 

 

And yes, WAY too many ballads!!!

Where are you guys getting 4 sappy ballads from? Dont Walk Away fits that bill I guess. But In The Name is hardly sappy.

 

Youre Not Alone is more of a power ballad.

 

Thats it, isnt it??

 

And they are all very good imo
