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
05:20 - deadone It'd be a 9 if songs like Sacrifice or Heavens On Fire were better. It'd be a 10 if these were excellent. However despite it's score of 8, large chunks are still soul catching.
05:17 - Fearmeister Yea, and so do I. I can fucking sing, air guitar and air drum Black Metal (the album) from start to finish. If that's not evidence of a 10, idk what is
05:15 - deadone Actually you are applying my scoring to your thinking.. Also something can be soulcatching and imperfect - I like Venom FFS.
05:09 - Fearmeister Exactly, you can't have 'unused' numbers. To leave 10s empty is simply stating that there is a level beyond soul catching
05:07 - MetalDoomMaster I think it's easier to think of 10s as "best of the best" instead of perfect. By your rating standards, there shouldn't even be a 10 on the scale. There must be some of those 9s you like more than other 9s.
