Hi! I'm using some free time here to indulge in two of my passions: music and databases.

I'm into many different genres, but industrial is my favorite, especially post-industrial/IDM/rhythmic noise.

My rating rationale (all IMHO):

5: Good majority of tracks are exceptional, must have release.
4: Amount of exceptional and average tracks about equal, fine but not essential release.
3: Few exceptional tracks, would've been preferable to get any singles from the release.
2: Didn't care for release, but could see how someone else would (i.e., sold).
1: Didn't care for release, and couldn't see how anyone else would (i.e., recycled).

I give a release at least two listens before rating, unless it leaves a particularly strong impression, either positive or negative. I also don't include transitional, remix or bonus tracks in the equation (unless the release is just remix and/or bonus tracks).
