6550 5 star albums, yes that is the correct number, six thousand five hundred and fifty 5 star albums

Looks like he's up over 8,600 now with 8,148 being 5 stars.  Didn't realize we had that many 5 star albums on the site!  Ermm


All those five stars, yet Ash Ra Tempel, Pawn Hearts, and In Extremis only get four LOL

And I feel really bad for the one group deemed worthy of a one star...

Thanks for at least looking into it.

Hey team, can something please be done about this? I've mentioned it before so not sure if it's new issues or just more added on to the initial complaint, but it's pretty obvious this is ALL the same person creating endless accounts.

In fact, it is rife throughout ALL of his albums, and really not fair at all.
Well understood, I suppose they would be manipulators from the similar place but cannot be really sure ... Unhappy

Will keep an eye upon this issue.

Oh, I've had a few. 4.5 star album, someone comes on, anonymously posts two stars, bu88ers off without a comment. Perhaps I've upset them on the forum. 

Then again, so what ? ;-)

I'd like to request that no one is allowed to rate anything without putting their name to a review and their reasons for the rating. No name, no review, no vote.

It's not that much work since he joined in 2011 and his one star rating was for a 2016 album.   Quick rating takes very little time, especially when, as he seems to, you rate lots of albums by a band at a time. Splitting hairs, but that is not the correct number, though. He has a total of 6559 ratings. He has one 1 star, one 2 star, two 3 stars, and over 300 4 star ratings. Still, that's over 6000 of those which are 5 stars by my rough estimate.

The reason I noticed he rated an album I like with one star. Free salamander........
It was his only 1 star rating

^ That's weird because the ratings are still there but no sign of anyone who left them. For example on the newest two i posted, there are two ratings. One is my review and the other is clearly a one star rating but when i look at the list of ratings there are none

Ahh a fellow Dane!
