100: A perfect album.

70+: No masterwork, with noticeable shortcomings, but good additions to a collection nonetheless.
60+: Good, but perhaps try a sampler before committing yourself.
50+: An average record that may disappoint.
40+: Poor, but listenable.
30+: One for completists.
20+: You're advised to avoid.
10+: Actively discomfiting.
0+: Put it back on the shelf, delete it from your download queue, and walk away.
