Progarchives, the progressive rock ultimate discography

Progressive Rock Top Albums / all subgenres - all record types - all years - all countries


Based on members ratings & PA algorithm

Here is some details about how we calculate the average rating of an album and the rank of an album.

  • Average rating: The classic calculation of the average but more weight is affected to the rating of progarchives.com collaborators and to rating with reviews.
    - Rating only: Weight = 1
    - Review by members : Weight = 10
    - Review by PA Collaborators : Weight = 20
  • Rank of an album: We use a calculation that compare an album average rating and number of ratings over all others albums in the query using this theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weighted_average)
  • to create a variable every query "QWR" (AKA: Query Weighted Rating) use for ordering.
  • By default, only albums with the average ratings above the average ratings of the requested query are displayed in theses lists, you can control this value in the parameters
