Score System

I am the Grim Reaper and my weapon is the score system. Tremble before me!

I know that scoring albums based on number is an archaic and arbitrary form of reviewing an album (because every album nowadays deserves a 7/10 or higher, pffffff). But I prefer to think of a score system as something that accents the critics opinion. For me, at least, there is good and bad music, there is good and bad art.

That’s not to say that music that is bad isn’t important, it’s just that, aesthetically or sonically, the music is undermined by a specific set of problems. For instance, an album could have a lack of direction. Or the album could simply be monotonous in length.

Whatever is trying to be said here, know that I use the score system to simply accent my opinion of an album. And if you’re an artist and you don’t like what I have to say, tough love! I love music enough to write about it, cut me some slack!
