Re: Artist Rating Correlations

Rating artists is very hard. Case in point. Fleetwood Mac. Love the early Peter Green era, the middle Weston & Welch years are in the middle and save for a couple of Lindsey Buckingham tunes the later years are dreadful.

Re: The site Raye Your Music is a bad source about music with many bad users

I like browsing RYM users album and song lists. It's a great way to discover new music. I also know that metal albums get higher than average ratings because of an influx of metal fans on the site using multiple accounts.

I think the ratio between a top albums list and top songs list should be 1/10 since albums have an average of over 10 songs. If there is a top 100 albums, then there should be a top 1000 songs.
