  • BlushfulHippocrene, even if that too seems sort of superficial. But I imagine there are certain people who are more willing to draw something special out of more things that hit their senses.

  • BlushfulHippocrene Yeah, that makes most sense to me. Guess it's a bit of a balance ultimately isn't it? And really in most cases you're only really going to LOVE an album you in earnest thing is excellent. That's interesting, I find it a bit more admirable with people who have a clear standard, but nevertheless have a lot of 5s - for sure it must just be individual perception of how ratings work and how you enjoy your art, but a greater number of 5s has always seemed to me like there's a greater love for the...

  • BlushfulHippocrene ...your fives, too. Is that how you consider them? To be a "complete musical experience"? I've noticed you and a few other users have a LOT of fives, whereas I struggle to even hold onto one for more than a couple months, and I'm starting to think I'm just not the best judge of what I like. And perhaps because my musical background isn't solid enough to foresee or differentiate what I love from what I like? Almost everything above a four in my ratings started a five in my head, I think.

  • BlushfulHippocrene Hi, man. Facebook's not allowing me to view the link, which is frustrating, but I hope I can read some more of your writing in the future. I'm going to apologise for inconsistent replies again, things are a bit weird right now... And I think I almost wholly agree with that assessment, particularly with the perfection of the aesthetic and how that bolsters its... I guess perfection - which isn't too much of a baseless claim at all, huh? This is actually so interesting, I want to go through...
