As the title says, take a look at the last person who commented above, and rate it from 1 - 10. Please give some reasons for why you rated the collection as you did!

So the first commenter are going to rate mine, then the next are rating his etc. Think you got it!

I'm not a big fan of metalcore or deathcore, and you had no albums from any of the bands I do like from those genres (to be fair, my collection isn't as varied as I'd like yet, so I don't have stuff from those bands either). In fact, you had quite a few albums from a few bands that I really don't care much for. Still, you had a good collection of death metal and good stuff from a few other genres. I'd rate your collection 5/10.

But like most other people have said, it's all down to personal taste. My collection sure isn't spectacular; I expect someone to rate it especially low, unless somehow the next commenter has the exact same taste as mine.

Jaeryd17 has quite a nice collection! Varied, lots of stuff that I would like for my own collection. Edge of Sanity too! And Queen! Also a lot of nice Prog stuff. I would almost give it a 8, but it's gonna have to end on a solid, strong 7.

Toxx has some pretty good essentials to his collection, across a variation of subgenres. Could still use some work, but you get at least a solid 7 man.

^Lots of stuffs I don't know, so it's kinda hard to rate the collection! Also you got some good records. Carpe Noctem, Enslaved and of course a lot of Opeth. I'll give you a 5, 'cause you got some stuffs I really enjoy, some stuffs I find just okay and a lots I don't know

Fallen Ghost: It's rather small but you have different stuff which makes this collection interesting. I'm kind of curious to see what's your ratting on all the Dream Evil, Hammerfall and the Single CoB album. Same for Lordi and Sabaton. Some stuff like Mastodon or even CoB could be improved. You can get Leviathan, Blood Mountain or Hatebreeder on a cheap Amazon store for less than 3€ each with shippings included. Behemoth could be a little more expensive but sometimes it's on really high discounts.

Short but sweet, 7/10 'cause its missing some key elements from some bands. Kudos for the Insomnium and Kalmah.

My whole collection doesn't represent what my taste in music is at this point. I was a huge fan of Dream Evil, Lordi and Sabaton before, but got tired of that stuffs. But it's still a part of my "music history" if you get what I mean, so that's why I got all these stuffs! Children Of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll was one of the first extreme metal albums I enjoyed, so I didn't listen to them for a long time.

Also I got that Mastodon CD from a friend, and I would probably not buy it myself. Tried the other CD's as you stated, but didn't just click. Also with Behemoth, I'm a huge fan of the new CD, but not that much of their older stuffs!

Sorry dude but that's only a 2 out of 10 for me. Your mainstays aren't my cup of tea for the most part (Insomnium, Sabaton, Lordi and I only have a passing interest in Kalmah and Opeth) .

Kudos for Rammstein though. Never heard Dream Evil but the fact that Fredrik Nordström plays in them makes me intrigued.

I'm sure mine won't rate highly though which is mainly mainstream thrash and heavy metal dinosaurs (the Nu-metal got flogged off as it started boring me and most of my old collection hadn't sold yet)!

I'll pretend I'm a fan of thrash and death metal and say 4/10. Some big names that I assume are good. Needs more albums from Sabbath and Motorhead. Good to see some symphonic black there. Not enough, though. Not many albums in common.
I wonder if I should add my non-database stuff to my collection?

Have to say that Vice has a nice large collection. Varied from different styles, and a lot of bands I wish I had some albums from but don't for some reason. I'd say it's probably a 9 out of 10, mostly because I'm jealous of some stuff.

More Sabbath is planned in the form of Mob Rules but that's pretty much it. Not a huge fan of Ozzy era so Best Of does me fine.

I will definitely get more Motorhead - never used to like them but something just clicked in recent years.

Try used ones on Amazon. I got most of my Motorhead for $3/less each.

I don't trust the used ones. How do you know the cd isn't scratched or the booklet doesn't contain someone's congieled sheeze between the pages.

Honestly, there is no real way to trust the condition of the CD. However, you can trust the shops that sell them and their honesty of the condition described. I only buy on a handful of very specific shops and only had two problems that resulted in a full refund plus a original copy of the CD (not a used one) for free. When something is rated Very Good, The CD's are almost scratchless and the booklets are very good (only have the plastic holder marks), on the worst case scenario the plastic box is scratched or broken but thats nothing, since you can easily change it from some other useless CD box or just buy a bunch of them in any chinese shop. I'm not sure if I can talk about the shops, but the ones i've been using on amazon are Zoverstocks (UK) and All your Music (US), they always have awesome prices either its brand new or used, their costumer service is good even though it usually takes average 2 weeks to arrive, it's still worth it.

Of course, its never BRAND NEW, but most cases you will end up with something like 90% instead of the 100% and you'll pay 1/3 or even less for them.

I'm the same. I also like supporting the local CD shop.

The only actual CDs I own are The Fallen by Evanescence and Weathered by Creed, got them both at a garage sale, so please don't judge me based on that. Is there anyway to add digital albums to the collection?

Anyway, I think I'll give you an 8, you've got good tastes. Love how not you've got plenty of sweet blackgaze like Alcest and An Autumn For Crippled Children, but you've got a fair bit of variety with lots of good progressive, power, and melodeath, and some good miscellaneous stuff like Rammstein. You've got the two best Disturbed and Mastodon albums for one. In regards to other black metal I see you have some of the best of the lot, like Emperor, Anaal Nathrakh, and Xanthochroid, and some more good post-metal like Sólstafir. Still some of the stuff is weaker, and I think it's missing a lot of stuff, but that's true for everyone, and most of what you have is top notch. I certainly wouldn't mind having to just listen to your collection for a week.

So long as you paid for them, I'd just list them under CD or vinyl depending on the digital version you paid for and write "digital download" in the additional info section of your collection.

Ah, thanks, pumping my profile up with poseurcore now. Anyway, I'll give you a 4/10, I see some stuff I like (mainly melodeath, some techdeath/progdeath and traditional, and some random stuff like Agalloch and Dimmu Borgir), but it's too death metal heavy for my tastes.

I'd probably give my physical collection a pretty low score as well. I don't own much of what I actually want since most of my spending was done at local record shops and they don't always carry what I'm after. I like supporting small business though so I buy some stuff I'm not necessarily keen on just to help keep the store afloat.

Obviously my digital collection is a 10/10.

I agree with this although I do also buy a lot online from smaller distros and the bands themselves. I try to stay away from Relapse and other labels that I know don't need my money. I buy a lot of physicals (tapes especially) from thrift shops and second hand stores, so I have lots of 80's rock and pop on tape

Willy; the majority of your registered collection is something I've never ever heard about, though you got some stuffs I know by name but haven't listened so much to. + for Mastodon. I would conclude this with a score of 3/10 (sorry!)

^ if I was unfamiliar with most albums of a collection I wouldn't rate it..... doing so negatively is not very logical.

Someday I should put mine here, laziness is a major obstacle though

If one isnt familiar with, at least, half of the collection, it isnt fair at all to comment, even less to rate it.

You had way too much that I either had no clue at all existed, not too big fan of, not listened to yet and albums I yet haven't heard of of good bands to give you a high score. You were on a 5,5 for some while thanks for some Katatonia, Bloodbath, Elvenking, Avantasia and a few others until I saw Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond, so your final score for me is 5,75.
