Ratings System

All reviews are on the standard 1 to 5 star rating system,, which in actuality is a 10-point system given the 1/2 stars.  I trust you can figure it out, but for those in need of further explanation, using the Beatles as a benchmark:

5 stars - A classic.  Revolver, Rubber Soul, Abbey Road, need I go on?
4 stars - Most excellent.  Magical Mystery Tour, A Hard Day's Night.
3 stars - Good.  Please Please Me, Beatles For Sale.
2 stars - Below Average.  The Beatles did not record any albums of that description.  But solo albums abound.  Wings at the Speed of SoundGeorge Harrison (s/t, 1979). 
1 star - Poor.  Don't waste either money or time.  Scraping the barrel.  A 1980s Paul McCartney album where he duets with Michael Jackson.  Any Ringo Starr album where he didn't have a little help from his friends.

That clear?  Good ***
