Long-time Archives enthusiast. I was a reviewer for metalcdratings.com (billed as Creag for various reasons), from 2006 until the site stopped updating in 2014, writing 222 full reviews. I was also an occasional collaborator for the now-defunct rockontheweb.co.uk.

I may possibly do reviews on request since I have nothing else on at the moment. PM me on the forum if you want to make a request.

Personally I think a percentage system is a bit too precise a marking scheme (I don't know how I'm decide the difference between a 71% album and 73% one). For my own reviews, I'll mainly be giving scores only on the 10s as equivalent to marks out of 10. Some albums will get an additional 5 (eg. 65% or 6.5/10) if it's too close to call.

Metal CD Ratings reviews are marked out of 5. The reviews I have ported over to here have been adjusted accordingly (3.5/5 = 7/10 = 70%) with some slight adjustments for the extra leeway the Archives' rating system allows.

Rock on the Web reviews were marked out of 10. The reviews I ported over to here were adjusted accordingly (6/10 = 60%).
