The rating system explained

We here at Track to Track (t2t?) wanted to use a rating system that was useful and simple, and we weren't interested in inventing something novel for the sake of being original. Since the advent of the Apple-takeover-of-everything-digital paradigm change, we have decided on using the iTunes 5-star system. It's not perfect, but it should be easy to understand. There are only a few changes, so here's how it goes:

5 stars: We love this track. Listen immediately.
4 stars: We really like this track. Recommended.
3 stars: We like this track.
2.5 stars: Meh. No opinion, really.
2 stars: We don't like this track.
1 star: We really don't like this track. Avoid.
0 stars: We absolutely hate this track. It has made our world a more terrible place in which to live.

There will also be a super-special designation for '6-star' tracks. These are 5-star tracks that are so memorable and amazing that they hold a special place in the heart of the reviewer.

Thanks for reading and listening! Be sure to let us know if you have any recommendations or suggestions.
