  • 2014 - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly (& The Other Fellows)

    6 Feb 2015, 00:47 by MATI9630

    It's that time of the year again, huh. Time to look back at the year that has just passed and see all it had to offer. It's also time of--
    Wait, no, it's February.
    Well, fuck.

    ...but I guess that's okay. Since last.fm has stopped displaying journal entries at artists' pages (well, they're there but well hidden - and come on, I don't know anybody who would actually look for them) and since I stopped being a somewhat active member of the community, my journals had a very limited range. And I know exactly one person who had demanded it (well, maybe up to three... but if you stumbled here by chance, that's cool), so is there an actual point of this?

    Probably not.

    Let's do it anyway.

    My rating scale is a bit fucked up as always. Therefore I decided to change the rules a bit. 7 (well, 8) categories, all clearly described. Simple as that. Oh, don't think of 'The Good' like 'well, it's alright, I guess'. It's more like 'holy shit, that's some good stuff'. …

  • Best albums 2014!!!

    17 Dec 2014, 07:55 by spojanen

    Introduction

    This time I'll start with a graph. I tried to make the effect of the albums release date smaller than it would be if only subjective feeling would have been used to make the list. The albums released earlier in the year tend to have more plays and some times also suffer by the moving interest towards the more recent releases.


    Materials and Methods

    In the graph:

    X axis = tracks played from the album X average playing time of the tracks in the album (roughly speaking minutes played).

    Y axis = the difference from the "very good album" subjective score given by the author. Weighed towards the current opinion (positive values -> better album).

    non-linear regression line fitted to data, it would seem that grade does not increase linearly when plays are increased. Also the albums on the right and above line have retained their first impression of the grade better than those below the line.
