i think rating on a 5 star scale is very silly
About
I think rating on a 100 point scale is very silly, so instead I'm basically using a 5 point scale. I guess more like 6, because I'm open to using 0 when really called for.
0- 0 stars, dreadful/unlistenable
20- 1 star, bad
40- 2 stars, low end of mediocre
60- 3 stars, decent
80- 4 stars, very good
100- 5 stars, fantastic
