Would you read* BBC album reviews more if they had star ratings?
(* click to the page, scroll down, tut and leave)
i would certainly complain about them more though.
how dare you.
they've made pretty much anything worth clicking impossible to find except through the search function. I don't want to search for things i want to click on them.
if they didn't seem to be almost universally positive. I very rarely read a negative review on the BBC website. It's fun to read a critic savagely take apart a shitty artist once in a while. And it also means I'm less inclined to check out stuff you recommend.
You could do an Olympic torch-style handover with CMG.
