*R = r × l / L*

*R: Weighted average rating (a number from 0.042 if you give The Ides of March a 1 to 2.65 if you give ROTAM a 10)*

r: Indivial song rating (out of 10)

l: Lenght of the song (min)

L: Lenght of the album (min)

r: Indivial song rating (out of 10)

l: Lenght of the song (min)

L: Lenght of the album (min)

The weighted average rating of the album is the sum of all the R.

The point of this is to show that longer songs should have more importance.

Take ROTAM. Most of us would give it a 10, but since there are 8 songs on Powerslave, this 10 is only worth a eighth of the regular average rating. However, its lenght represents more than a quarter of the album, so instead of being only 1,25 points of your total rating, it becomes 2.65 points.

My weighted average for TBOS is 7.90, not a huge difference but enough to go from 7 to 8 if we use round numbers.
