00:03 - Korah Yeah, MS ratings on new albums are totally f****ed! You just have to watch ratings from 2000 and ratings from 2016! Metal was'nt so much better than today releases.
23:53 - Czerny Reiter There's a dearth of reviewers on the site and most of what gets reviewed ends up getting a good grade (on the grounds that pro-bono reviewers mostly review what appeals to them).
23:48 - Overrwatcher I feel as if SSUS's review backlash is a perfect example of this. When he gave a 2/10 people didn't say much. When he gave a 9/10 people questioned his review integrity.
23:42 - Overrwatcher I will always bring up BMTH's "There Is A Hell" in this regard. Very well received literally everywhere but MS. Here it's one of the lowest rated albums in the database.
23:38 - Overrwatcher Bands can put out similar quality records to 10 years ago yet get over 1 point less. People have been much more negative recently. And MS also seems to shit on some albums at random.
Your list doesn't reflect my personal taste so I'm going to tell you that you need to get better at listening to music.
Alas it would appear to be the case. Given that I've listened to a significant majority of the top 100 most popular bands on MS, I must have a painfully limited listening to metal career. How can I hope to reach this guy's massive collection of 34, all of which I've heard or am imminently planning to do so? D:
P.S. Sorry Mr First Poster, I'm sure you've got a very valid point, but I do spend a significant majority of my time listening to metal albums trying to widen my listening horizons, so just because I like Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold doesn't mean I'm entirely unaware of the world of metal, I have managed to work myself through over 1000 in my hopeless quest to listen to all that metal has to offer, so just because some of my choices are untr00, please don't think I know nothing of metal. Plus I'd probably change about 1/3 of this list at least nowadays anyway.
