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!
...who sadly seems to download every release of the frontpage and then rate haphazardly - sometimes without listening to a peep. Stylish.

Now i have proof. I posted 5 new Buckethead reviews this morning around 8 am EST

Within an hour this guy rated all 5 with 1 star

So either he has found a way to listen to 2 1/2 hours of music really, really quickly

OR he has already listened to all of the Pikes and just waiting for someone to post

OR more likely, he's just simply plastering 1 star on every single release

Off with his head! LOL

Just kidding, what say you wise and powerful admins?

A collection of serial 1-starrers that I found. Many of the accounts are no longer active, but I think it may be worthwhile to "clean up the mess", so to speak. Lots of entire discographies/subgenres given 1 star ratings, with no accompanying reviews as justification.

This guy has some sort of vendetta against eclectic prog:


This guy has it out for many subgenres, including RPI, symphonic, zeuhl, all of of the metal subs, Canterbury, etc.


This guy seems to hate everything except for the output of a few select artists:


This one's real rich; everything's either a "masterpiece of prog" or "completionists only" as far as he's concerned:


This guy dislikes most stuff, and was only active for about a month:


Another case of not in the top 20; give it 1 star! Also, note that the account was only active for one day:


Only active for a few weeks, and yet another one of those "1 star every album by artists I don't like" fellows:


Another highly polarized rater. Certain genres can do no wrong, other ones are unworthy:

Limitless memory means our brains will get too plump for our skulls.

That's why i'm writing reviews for them. Because some of them deserve one star and some don't. I hardly want to incite the ratings police. If he hates them all so be it but i find it hard to believe that someone can carpet bomb any artist so uniformly with a single rating. My guess is he doesn't even listen Sleepy

Looks like we have a Buckethead hater on this site. I keep seeing that he rates every album i review with 1 star. Normally i don't care about such trivial things but when i look at his list of ratings, EVERY BH album is a 1 star (there is a single one with 2 stars). BH has such a wide range of styles no one could give every album the same rating if they actually listened. Is this ratings abuse? Just curious what you think.
