    I haven't calculated it well yet (I'll do that at the end, when we have more scores), but at this point, it looks like this album has the highest ratings. And realize that Travis hasn't even done all his songs yet. SSOASS might top this but I doubt if any other album will. We'll see.

    Invader Ancient Mariner

    Well, I can see you like it. :)  Also highest for me so far, and I think only BNW, AMOLAD and TFF have a chance of topping it in my ratings.

    edit: ah, you're reading it. Good.

    Invader Ancient Mariner

    I did the same with the title track; I have no idea what I was thinking.  I sort of feel I should have given 10s to SIASL and/or Alex, but they're not quite good enough.
  7. ______no5

    ______no5 The Angel Of The Odd

    Caugh somewhere in Time -7
    Wasted Years -9
    Sea  of Madness -6
    Heaven Can Wait -5
    The Lonlinnes -8
    Strange in a Strange Land -10*
    Deja Vu -4
    Alexander the Great -10

    Average:  7,375

    *My vote is the poll is actually 9, but I decided to change it. For the sum I counted as a 10.
  8. Unknown One

    Unknown One I see the ghost of navigators.

    Caught Somewhere in Time - 10
    Wasted Years - 9
    Sea of Madness - 9
    Heaven Can Wait - 6
    TLOTLDR - 8
    Strange in a Strange Land - 10
    Deja Vu - 8
    Alexander the Great - 9

    Avg: 8.625

    Hmmm..... This got just a slightly better avg than Powerslave, even if I considered this my equal 2nd favourtie album behind Powerslave. A change might be in order.

    59/8 = 7.375 = 7.4

    Cheers Foro!

    So far I'm at: PoM > SIT> NotB > IM > PS > K which is how it rolls in my opinion too, so this scoring system is working.

    Good to hear. Added you!

    So, my current ranking is:

    Piece of Mind: 8,7
    Iron Maiden: 8,7
    Somewhere in Time: 8,3
    The Number of the Beast: 7,8
    Killers: 7,5
    Powerslave: 7,3

    If I were to rate the albums by themselves, the result would look similar, although I guess Piece of Mind would get a higher rating from me, and I'd put Powerslave over Killers. Well, I'll check on all this once the rating thing is done.

    national acrobat Ancient Mariner

    6.6 for me, by some way the lowest score there. I'm trying to give an even weight to rating songs 1-5 with 6-10 though, so the score seems about right as an album total for SIT. I'll get round to rating earlier albums soon.

    Added Prowler_108.

    Genghis: 3 songs to go (if not mistaken).
  14. Dr. Eddies Wingman

    Will you sum it up for Seventh Son soon as well? There should be quite a few who have done all 8 songs now, right?
  15. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Indeed. I could do that one soon. Might still take a while, but it's in my head. Cheers!

    @Foro, you can count my scores, i've finished missing reviews for SiT today.
    Basically, it's 6 perfect scores (Caught Somewhere In Time, Wasted Years, Sea Of Madness, Deja Vu, Stranger In A Strange Land, Alexander The Great), one 9 (The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner), and one 8 (Heaven Can Wait).

    Therefore my average score for this album is 9.6.
    That titles me as the biggest SiT fanboy on this board. Win  :D

    Done before you posted. ;)

    Yup, i did the same for SSoaSS now.
    Damn flu, i've been in bed for two days in a row (literally!), reaching over 39(C) at points. So right now i have time to do the late homework  :D
  19. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Added that as well.

    Much appeciated. Not you being sick of course. Get well, and enjoy the songs you might play again for this kind of stuff.
