Yes, count me in! Or you can just give a 10 to every song.
Hounds of Love average from me won't be lower than 10 for sure.
50 Shades of Yellow Snow, not so much.
If I take part, am I allowed to 0 a whole album other than one track?
If I do so, it's not a 'troll' score. It's what I actually think.
You can sit on my table!
You could, but I'd want to see commentary for each of the tracks awarded a 0. Otherwise it could be seen as trolling.
I gave Lionheart an listen, and it really isn't that bad. Any album that followed The Kick Inside, was always gonna have an hard act to follow. But, it's certainly not the infamous "difficult second album', by any means in my book.
I can't believe some of y'all are talking about TANKING entire sections, did I stumble upon a pop gorls rate on accident?
Even Directors Sludge has redeemable points, cowards!
A zero surely means nothing redeemable whatsoever about a track which simply does not apply to Kate.
Get those zeros out of my house.
I don't believe in zeros and that applies for any rate, unless somehow a track by xxxtinct, Chris Brown and people like that slips in.
Not that I do a whole lot of rates but it always irritates me to see final scores skewed by LOOK AT ME zeros when a proper critique could be given. I can't think of a single song by anyone that has gone through an entire production process that deserves a zero - if someone has sat down and written it, sung it, instruments have been competently played, mixing done...surely we can give a point for effort, no matter how poor?
I totally get the sentiment that it might be better if certain songs had never existed, but still...
I'm not the biggest Kate fan around here as i have always found most of her stuff too theatrical and/or impenetrable for my liking however i can't think of any of her albums being bad enough to deserve all zeroes. At least she is the one who is singing, you know. That alone surely deserves some points.
Yeah, I agree that zeroes aren't warranted for most artists. Hence why I'm only allowing them really if they can be backed up with commentary explaining the reasons, etc.
The Sensual World certainly lives up to it's name. So lush. It's like the polar opposite to The Dreaming yet just as good on first listens of both. Really can’t wait to dive deeper.
I've been enamoured with Hounds of Love for the last couple of days. I'm gonna try and give commentary to at least a couple of songs/album but every album is so rich and like it's own little world I'm not sure I will have the time to process everything.
Maybe I should start chronologically after. But I'm really excited for this rate!
Tempted to do this just for the Fiona Apple/Bjork style dragging I'll get for pointing out that some of her songs aren't very good and not everything deserves a 10.
I've had Wow stuck in my head all day and happily blame this rate!
It's quite beautiful isn't it? I had my first listen to Lionheart earlier (thanks to this rate) and had to stop my cleaning when Wow came on!
It really truly is. It hasn't aged at all it I think.
I am mentally preparing as I just saw you have left alone a 0!?
