Album ratings on main site

Recommended Posts

I get bugged sometimes on the main site when I click on the ratings and see there are some people who score an album really low cause they are haters, but worse, some people score an album 090 or something like that consistently. Probably because they are retarded and don't understand how to write "90". This doesn't affect every release, just some.

These stupid ratings can throw out the averages, so I am wondering if there is a way to do a "diving judge" system and cancel out the lowest and highest rating (some idiot gives every album they like 100) in order to get the truer average?

Yeah, but the rating system here is pretty screwed up.
In fact I haven't seen it used for a while.
But a 70% is a pretty average/crappy album
80% is average/good
90 - 96% is really good
96 - 100% is great to perfect.

That's my take on it.

If I was to rate using this system, mine would come in at 
20% pretty shit, with only a few songs worth hearing and no keepers
40% poor, lucky to get 1 or 2 keepers
50% average, 3 keepers
60% ok, 4 keepers and some other ok songs that you might not skip if playing the full album
70% good 5 or 6 keepers
80% great album, 7 keepers
90% 8 or more keepers, couple of fillers, but that's ok, there are usually a couple
100% impossible, even the albums where every song is a keeper has songs that could be better. Some songs might just scrape in, etc

Like some of my fav albums...

Dr Feelgood 90%. Even though it has 3 songs I am not a huge fan of, sticky sweet, slice of your pie, rattlesnake shake, the other songs are really really good and llift it up.

5150  would be 90% Inside is pretty crappy, leaving only 8 songs, probably 6 of those are killer

Hot Action Cop. 90% I kept them all, except Goin' Down on It

Dangerous Toys Pissed 90% Pain train and strange are average, the rest is killer

Bad City 95% these are all keepers, and amazing songs, this would get a 95%, because there is always room for some to be a little better, some have no room for improvement

Pretty much my next favorite 50 or so albums would be 80 - 90% and it's downhill from there for the others

Every time I see Bad City mentioned I feel a tinge of regret for what might have been. We got that one, great album though... but there could have been so much more!

Same with Levara, now.

My biggest problem is the rare times that people comment about something other than the actual music on an album. London are a good example of that.

    • I'm still waiting for my copy  Mike, have you received a copy?
    • From MelodicRock Classics: MelodicRock Classics continues their partnership with acclaimed British melodic rock band RIO for the release of their second album – now presented with a new title and brand-new artwork – both driven by the band’s vision for what the second album should have looked like when originally released. The band’s Steve Rodford sets the record straight: “We are finally be able to address the dreadful original album cover and name. Titled ’Sex Crimes’, this was our 2nd and last album for Music For Nations and the fact that Elektra Records in the States (who had licenced the first album from MFN) hadn’t taken up the option of a 2nd album, meant the budget for this album was nowhere near what we had for ’Borderland’. When it came to the cover art, the label had gone ahead and designed it without consulting us, and it was quite a shock to see they’d gone with a topless woman with angel wings and a whip! It all felt so seedy and we both hated it. Then they told us there was no budget left to re-design it! So it feels so good to be able to finally re-package the whole thing in a much cooler way, and also with a new name, both of us feeling that ’Dangerzone’ is a better and more representative lead track for the record. Finally, to have the whole thing re-mastered is a real joy, getting it in a better place sonically rounds things off perfectly.” So with that said, RIO’Dangerzone’ will be released by MRC June 30, with new artwork from the band and remastered by JK Northrup. Track Listing: 01. Pay For Love 02. Under Pressure 03. Atlantic Radio 04. Highschool Rock 05. Guilty 06. When The Walls Come Down 07. Danger Zone 08. Sex Crimes 09. Dirty Movies 10. Bad Blood Bonus Tracks: 11. Atlantic Radio (Original Demo) 12. Guilty (Original Demo) 13. Pay For Love (Original Demo) Vocals, Guitar & Backing Vocals – Jon Neil Drums, Bass & Keyboards – Steve Rodford Additional musicians: Backing Vocals – John Verity All songs written and arranged by – Jon Neil, Steve Rodford Producer and 1st Engineer – Steve Rodford Remastered by JK Northrup Additional tracks – Original demos produced and mixed by Steve Rodford. Artwork design: Jon Neil Willoughy @StudioWibblee Pre-orders for RIO are open now. CD released June 30 on MelodicRock Classics
