This thread is a list of the albums released in 2010 that I have listened to, along with my assigned rating. I have posted each of these albums in the appropriate genre "Listening To" threads. My rating system is pretty simple. I assign a rating of 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 or 3.0 to each track on an album, then average that rating for an overall grade. This grade partially determines my purchases for the year. I divide those ratings into 3 categories. A rating of 2.4 to 3.0 means I will pay full price for this cd. A rating of 1.7 to 2.3 means I will purchase it, but only at a reduced price. A rating below 1.7 means I will not purchase this cd, even with Tiggi's money. Obviously these are not the only purchases I will make throughout the year, but my primary go to list. I will post each month at the end of the month.
Note: I am not vain enough to think you care about my music ratings. I am doing this for my own benefit. This is something I have done over the years and what better place to track it than here at the #1 music discussion site on the internet. If it sparks some debate or you get some laughs along the way, we're all the better for it.
