"What I've found over the years is that my opinion doesn't actually change all that much from the initial listens. Sure, it'll move a bit here and there, but if I'm breaking things down into tiers of great, good, mediocre, and bad, albums rarely move from one to the other."

Sure, I agree. I tend to be the same. Initial listens tend to seal the deal for the most part BUT .... I think a 5 star system based on "Essential, Very Good, Good, Average, Poor etc." would tend to muddy the waters as the gap between ratings 5 and 3 especially are worlds apart depending on the listener. We all know a crap 1 rating album when we hear one.

Well, apart from Pirage that is :). (He actually had me checking out Joe Lynn Turner for Christ's sake ... oh my Gawd.
