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 got duped by this one as well. They had the look, they were on Pakaderm, produced by John & Dino Elefante, so it was a blind purchase for me. Not what I expected, but as you point out, it's not too shabby for what it is. That said, I understand why they were a one-and-done band.
    • I don't know why this concept is so hard for the world to accept. This pandemic ends when we say it ends. It's really as simple as that. As long as we keep shining a blowtorch on it it's never going to stop governing our lives. The obsession with it is a far greater pandemic than the actual virus.  I know people hate when I bring up logical thinking, but we can't just keep reporting all the covid stats as if it is the only thing on earth affecting people. If we need to keep a record of daily covid case numbers, then they should be read alongside an entire daily list of all diseases, viruses and illnesses, so we can see where it sits, in context. If we need to talk about how many hospitalisations there are, then we need a daily list of every single patient in a hospital and exactly why they're there and see where covid ranks on that list too. Same with deaths. A lot of people die in the world every single day. Not just from covid. If we're serious about saving lives, we need a daily list of every single death and what caused it, ranked. See where covid ranks on this list too, and act accordingly. Sounds absolutely fucking ridiculous? Of course it does. But we need to stop pretending covid is the only thing on planet earth and put it into context with every single other human ailment.  It's like the meek kid at school who runs from spiders and has a phobia for everything is currently governing how we all live our lives. If people want to live their lives in fear of this thing, I'm all for them doing that but there needs to be a time when they leave us out of it.  I like cleaning my ears and nostrils with the tip of my penis, but do I need to enforce this method of cleanliness on the entire world? No, I do not. I am scared of losing the 386th hair in the 147th row of hairs on my head, but do I need the world around me to live in fear of hair loss? Why are we all being dragged into this stupid fucking thing? If people want to panic, let them panic, but leave the rest of us out of it.
    • Now this is a fun album. Played it a few times this morning and really liking it. 
    • Apparently your not a fan, we did that flick back in 08, it was called G-Off is RUSSIAN IN THE BACK DOOR, there's also 7 sequels, we are shooting on location right now for his next big flick called, Trudeau Felches the Canadian Bacon, and it's funny you singled that sentence out, whats really so sadly comic is Joe Biden is making Trump look like the greatest leader in history, these people are going to be fighting to re-elect him when this term is over, I really think the funniest part about Trump being re-elected, will be the 4 straight years of silence from democrats in the following years, they are all implicit in this, and all the people who didn't vote for biden on his credentials, they just voted so Trump didn't go back in. egg all over the face, not to mention chinese and russian jizz, face and back
