I generally only review albums I like, because I don’t feel like wasting my time on music I don’t. The only exceptions are albums that are so upsettingly terrible that I feel like I have so say something to warn the general public. Those will be few and far between, again because I’m just not going to spend the little time I have on crappy music.
This isn’t going to change. I truly believe that good music is good for you and I’m going to continue reviewing albums that I think are good, at least to my ears.
All that said, there are levels of “good”. Like everyone, there are many albums I like, but I like some more than others. I’ve decided on a scale of headphones, from 1 to 3.
3 headphones= Excellent. This album is more than good, it’s great, and it’s music I want to hear again and again for years to come.
2 headphones= Very Good. This album is good music, though it may not be destined to be an all-time favorite.
1 headphone= Good. This album is good music, and while certainly not great, it made for a nice listen.
0 headphones= Not convinced. This album just didn’t do it for me, in fact, I may have hated it.
There will also be 1/2 headphones, as needed. Take those how you like. In fact, take all of it as you will. I rate these albums based on my experiences with them, not how I feel they will be received by others.
And with that…enjoy!
