Inspired by Mark_H's fine lists, I've decided to create one with my ratings of albums released in 2010.

I rate every song on an album based on the following criteria.

10 - Masterpiece
9 - Excellent
8 - Very good
7 - Nice
6 - Average
5 - Could be better
4 - Don't like it
3 - Bad
2 - Horrible
1 - Can't listen to it

For rating an album, I calculate its weighted average considering each song's duration. I also consider previous works released by the artist that I know of, so I can adjust ratings from time to time.

Albums rated around 7 or above are recommended.
Albums rated around 6 are average and you could give it a try to see if you like it.

So, here is my list, which will be updated as I rate new albums or adjust some ratings. Feel free to leave your comments ;-)

    Thanks for the warning, Mostlyanthony. You're right, I don't know why I tagged it as a 2010 release. I'll remove it on my next update.

    Where is Disperse's -- Journey Through The Hidden Gardens album? Where is Uranian's -- La ciudad de los sueños album? These are the best progressive albums of 2010
