has anyone else noticed the staggering amount of "10" ratings people have given CD's & bands? Its fine if you think the band/CD is awesome but can you please be a little more objective in your rating scale? the review is supposed to be an objective analysis not a mindless fanboy rant. no CD/band is perfect & most are far from it!

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

i care b/c i'm wondering if i'm the only person who realizes that nothing is perfect and that includes music. & reviews should be written as a "critical analysis"

It's because there are n00bs everywhere in the world. Get over it, try the gear yourself.

Because other people's opinions should form your own.

Personally, I like to go with the cd that most people don't consider their best, since they usually seem better.

Maybe they're rating it on enjoyability? Or possibly effort.

People like to justify their purchases. If they just bought a $4000 Gibson and its a piece of ****, they aren't going to admit how much of a dumbass they are.

I wish they'd be a bit more consistent with gear reviews on this website.

How are new players going to distinguish the good from the bad when UG insists on giving entry-level brands such as Squier eight or nine out of ten?

Okay I didn't read the entire thread but this is irony, if ever I saw it. You claim to realize that everything isn't perfect, yet you want their review to be?

10 out of 10 doesn't mean that a band is perfect, it denotes from 95% upwards.

As an enlightened listener, there are many albums that only have one flaw for every 19 good points.

You should also consider that UG'ers generally only review albums that they particularly hold dear to them.

Yeah, this sort of thing really annoys me. People should use a rating of 5/10 for an 'average' product. Using 7 or 8 for an average product as most do means there isn't much 'room' to distinguish the really great products.

Play a Cort ?

Play with V-Picks ?

Would you like to think that the average person is around a 5 or a 7? 5 would be sub par, while 7 is more in the general acceptable range. Next time a girl asks her how good she looks, tell her "Oh you are average, about a 5." I bet she will get irate.
Anything under 5 is in the bad.
