06:31 - deadone As for 10s, give me an album that keeps me enthralled from start to finish and I'll give it a 10.
06:24 - deadone Oh and do you buy CDs/LPs? I notice your collection is only 43 albums. Obviously it might not be up to date.
06:21 - deadone And sometimes I buy a song based on a casual listen or even a single song (e.g. Arsis A Celebration Of Guilt when it came out).
06:19 - deadone Fearmeister, I don't necessarily have a buy threshold. Occassionally I buy random CDs without ever having listened to the band (e.g. Warbringer or Switchblade). Doesn't happen as much these days due to lack of decent CD shop
05:35 - Fearmeister What I found interesting is that the people who think 10s are next to impossible have a buy-threshold of ~7.5, while the people who have no problem giving out 10s have a buy-threshold of ~8.5. Just a cool thing I noticed
05:24 - Fearmeister Yea, so you like 2 of the songs less. There are plenty of people who gave out 9s to albums where they liked 2 of the songs a bit less than the rest
