Your Rating Criteria

Do you have a set of standards for each 1-5 rating? Or do you just rgo with your gut? List is albums that are benchmarks of each rating rfor me.
1Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

5. Consistent all the way through in terms of quality. Simply outstanding. If
an album tells a story of some sort, it certainly makes it better, but not an
absolute prerequisite for a 5.
2Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane over the Sea

4.5. Usually, an album that is otherwise a 5 but comes up short in some
way, whether it be a couple of weaker tracks or some overlying musical
quality that bothers me. 4.5s and 5s are special works of art.
3Between the Buried and Me

4. A 4 is an album I actually want to sit down and listen to; good artists
should be consistently releasing 4s barring some extenuating circumstance.
Usually lacking a classic track or not having the right atmosphere for a
higher rating.
4Alanis Morissette
Jagged Little Pill

3.5 Read the definition of a 4; a 3.5 is an album I enjoy listening to, but not
to the same degree as a 4.
Pablo Honey

3. 3s are the basement of albums that are well-made but not having any
qualities that warrant frequent listens. The artist didn't screw everything
up, but hopefully only young bands or slightly-above-average bands to
begin with produce 3s.
6Cannibal Corpse
Tomb of the Mutilated

2.5. Average albums are exactly what their name implies. If I hear an album
and nothing jumps out at me beyond 1 or 2 tracks, or if a really good track
is dragged down by a poorer album, its a 2.5
Death Magnetic

2. Albums that could have been good, but aren't. They're listenable, but
just barely. I tend to rate harsher on bands that are cashing in on their
fans or are reusing the same gimmick, or are Metallica and promise an old-
school album but make this.
8Wiz Khalifa
Rolling Papers

1.5. These albums have maybe some semblance of musical quality; maybe
the lyrics are average and the music sucks, maybe a boring and uninspired
rapper with a painful image has barely-acceptable beats, but overall, these
albums should be avoided.
9 Brokencyde
I'm Not A Fan, But The Kids Like It!

1. Lol, stupid. Don't listen to this. Bands that make 1s are either
intentionally fucking with your or have absolutely 0 idea what music is.
