5 stars The rating of this album can be used as a punchline for a joke. 4.35? What? Does people even know how important this album is? 4.35??? 4.35?!?! 4.50 would honestly be low for the sheer masterpiece that this work is.

Miles Davis is undoubtedly one of the greatest jazz players of all time. He revolutionized the genre, he created multiple genres, he had a flawless technique, and apparently his masterwork is only worth 4.35 stars. This album is even more important to jazz than ANY of the top prog albums were to prog (except Close To The Edge and Court Of The Crimson King), it revolutionized practically everything in it and established a new era of Jazz all by himself.

This has only five tracks and it was released in 1959. 1959!!! Just transport yourself to that time and listen it, then you will realize why it's important to the genre. It did things never done before. Musicality is perfect as you would expect from a Miles Davis album.

How are you not supposed to give this five stars? It's objectively five stars. It's objectively an essential album. Seriously people *facepalm*.
