4.5 = extremely good, definitely aoty material but i don't feel comfortable with giving it a 5.
4.0 = very good, definitely worth grabbing.
3.5 = quite good, i would strongly recommend all albums at this level or above.
3.0 = good. i usually default to this if i feel it needs more listens but was pretty good on first / second listen.
2.5 = solid, worth getting. i usually default to this if i feel it needs more listens to fully get the hang of.
2.0 = not bad, worth getting if you're a fan of the band.
1.5 = mediocre, if you really like the band you may as well grab it but otherwise i don't recommend it.
1.0 = pretty bad but has a few redeeming features that salvage it somewhat.
0.5 = shit but not the shittiest of the shit.
0.0 = utter shit, don't even bother.
