18:45 - LeKiwi It's not really a personal list, I'm just trying to promote music that I think people would enjoy. i.e. you rate according to the target audience: how someone fond of the style would enjoy it.
18:44 - Troy Killjoy So your personal list, which is supposed to reflect your personal taste, isn't personal at all, but merely a reflection of what you think the general public thinks? Confusing.
18:43 - LeKiwi You don't have to enjoy something to appreciate it's quality. If I hated an album, there would probably be something wrong with it and hence would get a lower score. However, for higher ratings: appreciation vs. enjoyment.
18:43 - Erik M. Troy, hahaha I know right? That is totally logical, after all. Fearmeister, exactly what I think as well. Reviews might be more objective (sometimes), but still subjective in the end.
18:42 - Troy Killjoy Exactly. It isn't vote abuse if you just rate it what the general public rates it, right?
18:42 - Fearmeister Troy was just afraid of being reported for vote abuse ;)
18:41 - Troy Killjoy That's all I ever did. Everything I rated less than 5 was actually a personal favorite.
