This appears just like my CC series, but there is one crucial distinction. This list is the combined opinions of me and the critics in the critical consensus series. My vote counted for one point just like the vote of each critic.

Essentially, this is simply an update of the CC series with my little voice tossed in as a drop in the critical pool.

Scale:

***** - Masterpiece
**** 1/2 - Classic
**** - Great
*** 1/2 - Good
*** - Above Average
** 1/2 - Average
** - Below Average
* 1/2 - Bad
* - Terrible
1/2 - One of the worst albums ever

Excellent series, lbangs, very helpful! :)

Thank you! I always create these hoping somebody besides myself will find them useful... :)

Shalom, y'all!

where is your review for Time Fades Away?

It is not in print (I don't think it has ever been legally on CD, has it?), and I have tried to limit these lists to in-print, available items.

If you're curious, it averages to *** 1/2. :)

Shalom, y'all!
