Rating Theory

Each FZ discography entry’s rating now also displays the number of votes/ratings made on the album in question. Rather than to turn the rating system into a FZ album popularity poll, the effect of this is that it shows which releases are (still) the most ‘controversial’. People who are very much against a certain release will be prone to add their (negative) rating, just as people who love the album would add their (positive) rating. Releases considered “lukewarm” will get less ratings. So, the number of ratings reflects to what degree any album agitates the young Zappa sophisticate. Right. If you need me I’ll be back at the laboratory crossreferencing suicide rates with the release of the newest Christina Aqui—Aggi—Aguisomething album.
