Interesting thoughts, Kevin. :-)

I guess I don't care about scores enough to go through such an advanced system. Another thing that ruins it for me is the fact that a song I one time consider a classic, I might've changed my mind about at a later point. Another thing that complicates things even more is when you consider productions/sound....if, for example, one albums sounds much better than another but with less classic songs on it. I might also rate a song a classic, just like another song which I think is even better. The last thing I'll bring up is how well an album works as a whole with song matching, sequencing....hell even the cover/packaging. ;-)

Nope, I'm hopeless and I would never be able to do reviews with ratings like the ones Andrew do....and stand by them a 100% later on.

*Edit*

I'd just like to add that if I had done a rating of all Magnum albums 5 years ago I wouldn't have rated II as high as I do today, for example. That is the Magnum album I've listend to the most the last couple of years and it's open my mind about it. Fantastic album! :)
