    Didn't do one of these for 2009 on That was a mistake. Time to get back to work.
    Principle is the same. All new releases I hear will receive a score out of 100. Updates will happen periodically. Scores may evolve slightly over time, though there won't be any big jumps.

    Scoring table:

    [100] = If it comes to a choice between buying a pill that'll cure your child's cancer or this, buy this.
    [90-99] = Essential. Create an unholy army of flying zombie monkeys to help you obtain this!
    [80-89] = Excellent shizzle, recommended to all. Unless, of course, you're a poothead with vile taste in music stuff.
    [70-79] = Still pretty good, if somewhat unremarkable. Mostly only for fans of the band/genre.
    [60-69] = Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. Approach with caution and keep your finger hovering over the button that releases the hounds.
    [50-59] = Mediocre. Only for the true collector with more money than good taste.
    [40-49] = Horse manure by any other name... But hey, at least you got a spare jewel case now.
