If you all use different scales with your reviews that's an issue haha. People understand reviews are one person's opinion, but a consistent rating scale across the website would be beneficial.
Its not a problem, or it shouldn't be. People will have different scales no matter what. Let them. They have the freedom to do so. It wouldnt be so confusing or bothersome if you paid more attention to the review than the score.

It's not a bad thread, it's a great one. Discussion is discussion.

Yup.

I have probably listened to this album 20 times over the last week, if not more. I really do like it, but I've come to the conclusion that soft, pretty B&C >>> fast, grungy B&C.

I agree 100%. I've always kind of preferred the acoustic versions of their songs over the originals. Jon's singing voice is nice and almost comforting in a way.

Yep not even close really. Loud and heavy b&c does nothing to differentiate them from 95% of the scene whereas the softer stuff truly allows them to shine.

1. Yeah I was going to include that people should just read the reviews rather than worry about the score, but thought I'd keep it brief.
2. I do still think if a site is going to score records, it should have a standard way of doing it so it is fair to all artists and consistent. Reviews can be different opinions of course but no good one person saying my record sucks and giving it 5/10 then another person saying your record is good not great and giving it a 6/10.
3. I posted that before I realised Jenkins had been having a long argument and, upon reading the prior comments, immediately regretted fuelling any more pointless discussion!

mannnn is everyone gonna come in here now and be like "wow this thread sucks" im really sorry about this fuck i legitimately feel bad
To be fair, you entered one of my threads recently and said it sucked or was "terrible". It probably was terrible, but don't get defensive when others say a thread sucks elsewhere.

Saying you're sorry and you legitimatey feel bad in a sarcastic way? If not defensive, it certainly seemed like you were solely taking the blame for people saying the thread sucks and being agitated about that.

All I was saying is: don't get mad about people saying a thread sucks when you do it too.

"im really sorry about this fuck i legitimately feel bad". Sorry if I misinterpreted it, I guess sarcasm never translates to the written word well. But I'd guess a lot of people felt that was meant as sarcasm and you did not actually feel bad.
