Remember when I ranted that AllMusic needed to upgrade more albums from the 2000s to a five star rating because there wasn't many of them compared to the 2010s? Well...

...The following albums have been upgraded to 5.0 stars on AllMusic: The following albums have been upgraded to 4.5 stars on AllMusic: It's a good start with (as ever) some unusual choices. They'll need to double that amount to catch up to their 2010s selection. Hopefully this is just the start and another update is in the works.

At least MartyD82 will be slightly happier now since MBDTF has (finally) been upgraded. It may not the complete upgrade Kanye fans had wanted but it's a move in the right direction.

Correct. Same with Sam's Town. The writer has a penchant for altering the album ratings whenever they take over reviewing an act's discorgraphy. It happened when they started writing the reviews for Beyoncé, Coldplay, Muse and Nine Inch Nails too.

EDIT: The same writer also does the reviews for Deftones. With the band releasing a new album tomorrow, AllMusic have (...you guessed it) made some rating changes to their discography:
  • White Pony has been upgraded to 4.5 stars.
  • Gore has been downgraded to 3.5 stars.
  • New York by Lou Reed has also been upgraded, to 5.0 stars.

If there are any Linkin Park fans here, you'll be happy to know that Hybrid Theory has been rerated by AllMusic (yes, again). This time it's been upgraded to 4.5 stars.
