But why would someone believe that the subjective helps give an accurate view of an album when a person's enjoyment of an album differs from person to person.
One score is fine. People should be able to surmise that if an album gets an 8/10 or a 9/10, they should check it out.
exactly. like, what even is the difference between an 8 and a 9, really? the only point of the score is to catch the eye, so that the viewer digs deeper, reads the review, and checks out the record. This is why I like the idea of "not recommended/recommended/highly recommended" as opposed to a score.
But I guess I do get that there's something enchanting about seeing an album you love or are looking forward to get a 9.5 or higher, but it's so unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
