Hm, might have to knock the Bunnymen down. Now there's a band whose music has no staying power. It's good for about ten listens and then becomes forgettable. Hence I haven't played any Bunnymen tracks in about two years. At least Achtung, for all its crappiness, has given me The Fly, Acrobat, and Love Is Blindness.

Well, you put my favorite album at 4.0, so that's acceptable.

I think those are too high for Axver. They shouldn't have been above a 1.5.

Plus, for extra B&C blasphemy:

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Howl
Joanna Newsom - Ys
Modest Mouse - The Moon And Antarctica
Muse - Black Holes And Revelations

Then what are your 4 and 5 star albums then? Anything from PT, PRR, Anathema, Agalloch or Blackfield?

Most metal albums ever written are 4s and 5s.

Looking at this, I've really rated some stuff far too highly. Plenty of 3.5-4 star material in 4.5-5, and plenty of 2.5 star material in 3.

Might find myself doing a lot of relistening and revising over the weekend ...

Well, i was surprised, after your feelings on Coldplay.

But then I equate Coldplay with being an Echo tribute band, so there ya go.

It's been observed on the RYM forums that metal fans seem to have a tendency to rate metal albums somewhat higher than fans of other genres rate albums in their chosen genres. I try to avoid metal that I know I won't like, but I still think there's a good representation of rubbish metal in the lower star levels.

I haven't given them as solid a listen as I should. Some of their songs I quite enjoy, while others I don't care for. Might need to download a couple of albums.

Well, I skimmed through all those reviews and now I want my time back. I could have gotten those opinions, possibly with near-identical wording, from talking to Ax for ten minutes. In fact, I have!
