    just saw via Wikipedia that Pitchfork gave Scarface - The Fix a 6.3/10 which I can't comprehend whatsoever

    Then I remember Melon gave MBDTF a 6/10 in his most notorious review ever

    What are some other numbers where critics just completely missed on giving a great or horrible record a terribly inaccurate rating ?

    And don't share stupid stuff like your middle of the road fav records getting 7s, strictly truly perplexing inaccurate embarassing ratings

    He also gave Acid Rap a 6/10
    Mysterious Phonk a 5/10
    Finally Rich a 4/10
    Blank Face a 5/10

    A lot of his reviews are pretty whack tbh

    Didn’t they give Raising h--- like a 7.5 rating or some s--- like 10 years ago? Yea, f--- those dickheads. That’s arguably the greatest hip hop album of all time.

    People put too much stock in ratings. Read the d--- review instead of getting in your feelings about a number.

    Most of ab souls DWTW reviews s----d. Albums at least 10/10. I think Fagtano gave it a 6 or 7 though which is like a 9 in normal peoples standards. The pitchfork reiview on it hurt my brain (gave it a 4), proof you shouldn't review an album after one listen.
