What Your Ratings Mean.

We all know. Also: each album is meant to be an example of the rating in its description, if that's not obvious.
1Hello Kitty Suicide Club
^_^


1.0 - Awful

-An album that is so offensively bad that there are no redeeming qualities to it whatsoever, whether it be from the songwriting to the performance to the production value; absolutely everything fails.

-An album that a lot of people enjoy, but you're an edgelord who doesn't think it is that good and won't leave the thread as you express how not that good you think it is.
2Say Anything
Anarchy, My Dear


1.5 - Very Poor

-An album that, while awful from most standpoints, still is handled adequately in at least a few departments (usually production).
3The Smashing Pumpkins
Zeitgeist


2.0 - Poor

-Usually a very disappointing and/or "hyped-up" album from a band you once greatly enjoyed and celebrated. It may not be *that* bad of an album, but the disappointment hurts.

-"This is as low as this dumb site would let me rate Pinkerton."
4Lady Gaga
Artpop


2.5 - Average

-Usually inoffensive and "fine," a forgettable album that doesn't leave an impression on you whatsoever.

-Any album titled "The Return of Dr. Octagon"
5Joyce Manor
Cody


3.0 - Good

-You don't come back to this album a ton, but it has a few redeemable qualities here and there and maybe a couple songs that you find yourself coming back to.

-A lot of influential bands' first album (ex. Pablo Honey, Get Stoked On It!)
6Sun Kil Moon
Common As Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood


3.5 - Great

-An album that is great.

-An album that isn't all that great but you really really wish it was.

-Experimental albums that you don't really enjoy that much but respect what they're doin.
7Glocca Morra
Just Married


4.0 - Excellent

-Very cohesive albums that have an element to their sound that sets them apart from similar artists.

-Any mash-up album by Neil Cicierega.

-An album you're a fanboy of but you don't want to be called out for it.

-Above-average reunion albums.
8The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site


4.5 - Superb

-An album that is a 5 but only at certain times.

-Nearly-perfect albums (duh) that have one glaring flaw to them.

-An album you think is a 5 but you are afraid that during an online argument here someone will look at what you rated a 5 and use that to argue that your point is invalid.
9A Tribe Called Quest
The Low End Theory


5.0 - Classic

-Perfect albums.

-Albums that have sentimental value to you.

-"I know not many other people think this but it's my opinion and I'm sticking to it! Humph!"

-"I'm rating it this to balance out the negative sco-" *ratings wiped*

-"Lol what if I actually thought this was a 5??? XD XD XD XDDDD"

-One of your favorite artists just surprise-streamed their new album so you 5 it just before hearing it so you can see the average be really high and give yourself a false sense of acceptance and validity.
