so it all begins with my previous rating of pinkerton. it was a 58. but then i thought about something. there are albums that don’t have any songs that i come back to that had a higher rating than that. pinkerton has many songs i come back to, but it also has a lot of songs i dislike. this got me thinking: do i prefer an album to be consistently decent, but never great or to be inconsistent yet having some songs i love. i decided that i prefer the latter and upped the score of this album. but that got me thinking again..... how much do 10 points really matter? to me they do, but should they? should there be that big of a difference between a 5 and 6 out of 10?? i don’t know.
