Left Hand Ov Dog's REVIEW SCALE:
100- Timeless, flawless and essential. Will be with you your whole life.
95- Incredible, highly memorable music, hovering just below perfection.
90- A fantastic album, an exemplary monument to the chosen style.
85- Flirting with greatness, essential for fans of the genre.
80- Unflinchingly solid, an all-around compelling and memorable release.
75- Glimmers of greatness in an above-average product.
70- A good effort. Nothing mind-blowing, but a worthy catch for genre or artist enthusiasts.
65- Good ideas and acceptable execution, but not very satisfying or memorable.
60- Meh... s'alright. Contains some intriguing elements. Proceed with caution.
55- Enter the bargain bin. Underlying potential treading water.
50- Nothing to love or loathe. The color grey in musical form.
40- Skirting the border of crap, with very little worth salvaging. Digging through shit for scraps of gold.
30- The musical equivalent of snorkeling in sewage.
20- Actively offensive to the senses. The musical equivalent of snorkeling in sewage beneath a chili convention.
10- Laughably, irrefutably terrible. A bold and terrifyingly large excrement on the lawn of good taste.
0- An embarrassment to humanity. An affront to the concepts of quality and integrity. Worthy of active, unfettered loathing. See: Winds of plague.
I'll use his scale as mine, it's so accurate! Hope he doesn't mind...
Also bass player for experimental death metal band Azterion. The review I wrote for the band's debut album (in which I didn't play) was written before I met the guys or I was a member...
