PP knows no half-measures  and can part the Chanel waters if he wants.

5 stars are meant to be a rarity not 20% of your collection, it's a Bell Curve not a horizontal line.


this is a nuance well beyond PP's horizon (and since he probably is a Flat Earth believer... )TongueWink

It can only be PA the place that lambasts someone for being over enthusiastic. I say drag him to the gallows and hang him high. Let that then be a lesson to others LOL

^ In defense of someone who has posted 5 star reviews somewhere near a 20% clip, let me just say that I only write reviews of albums I feel are worthy of my time and energy to promote  and yet I want to be honest while being appreciative of these committed artists' talents and efforts. Were I to review every album available each year--which I think averages over 2000 each year in Prog-related world--the center/median of my "bell curve" would, I should think, be somewhere further down the 1-to-5 average. But, again, I feel it is my job to try to bring attention to albums that show something exceptional and exciting. I feel like I'm bored and wasting my time when writing detailed reviews about albums that I do not feel are worthy of promoting (i.e. albums that I think I could do better or that are just regurgitating old ideas).
