Albums From 2014: One Man's Perspective

Thumbs up: +1
Every year, hundreds of albums are written and released for people to buy and hopefully not steal. I spend most of my free time searching far and wide for new music, most of which only very few people know about. This list will contain all the albums released this year that I listened to, and what I thought of it. The rating system is as follows:
Based = Awesome, Perfect
Chill = Solid, Substantial
Dope = Good-not-great, Something I'll only listen to if I'm bored
Retarded = Mediocre, Unremarkable
Mindfucked = Complete waste of time
Also, there will be albums that aren't metal that will appear here, just cause.

This has got to be the single-worse rating system on this site. "Based," "Dope," "Retarded?"

What the hell are you, a 12-year-old white kid pretending to be gangsta?

Yeah I was baffled by that, too. One of the best tags I could throw on an album is mindfuck.
Giving my ears a rest from music.

Exactly what I was thinking as well. Well, aside from the 12-year-old white kid part, hahaha. What a truly ridiculous rating system indeed.

So, let me get this straight; you want to use a single word to explain how you feel about an album, sort of like a number from 1 to 10. OK, cool, I'm still with you there. But then you choose words completely unrelated to describing the quality of something, which causes you to have to explain those words in your description using other words that are more fitted for the job. That's where you lost me...

Instead of using 'retarded' to describe something that sounds mediocreto you, why not just use the word
It actually makes sense.
And the tears that we will weep today
Will all be washed away
By the tears that we will weep again tomorrow
