I LISTEN TO MUSIC. Like, comment & subscribe for more content, and don't forget to support me on my Patreon page (link in the description).

What I rate:
With just a few exceptions (some non-album singles) I don't rate singles. I only rate each release once: I don't rate remasters, remixes, or compilations of material I've rated elsewhere. I do rate re-recordings/"re-imaginings"/you-get-the-idea (however, as of now there are only 6 in my collection). I do rate EPs, but only if they contain exclusively or almost exclusively non-album material.

You can always check how many EPs, singles, double albums, triple albums, re-recordings, or even concept albums and operas (albums with story) etc. I have rated in my tags. I also tag albums by the decade in which they were recorded (and composed, in case of classical music) since I don't like that the site only cares about release date (in my opinion it makes no sense to count 1920s early jazz compilation as 1990s record, just because it was released in 1992).


How I rate:
Usually I give a rating based on one full listen + one or two listens of fragments. Some say that to fully appreciate a record one should listen to it at least 5, or 10, or 20 times, but if I were to do that I'd stop listening to music - it would simply be too boring.

Track ratings are more about pointing out the highest and lowest points of the record and may not be consistent across my collection - a 4.5 song on one album may be worse than a 4.0 song on another album. Also, album ratings can differ from track ratings average - that's intentional, as albums can be more than sum of their parts (or less).

All the soundtracks I rate based on how they sound outside of the movies/video games/installations/whatever they've been made for.


I'm always in search of new music, so if you think I might like something don't hesitate to recommend it.

    yes, when those genres were fresh and new. except now, the possibility of creating new simple genres is smaller and smaller. maybe pretty much every genre has been created?

    also interesting that you mentioned post-rock, which seems to be one of the least "simple" of genres with all sorts of rock/jazz/classical influences.

    my main problem with your review was the link to Lordi and Babymetal - that just seemed stupidly harsh ;) they make kids' music..

    compare with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sptA6vFKRrw

    "prog fans tend to rate "prog" on everything they've ever listened to and " I'd say the top 100 chart is fairly accurate. Its mostly recent albums that are mislabelled. 2. Yeah, Parenting system is dumb.

    What does the tag "concept" mean?
