I’ve decided to start reviewing albums on a whenever I feel inclined to do so basis. To help distinguish us, I’m gonna move away from the traditional Rolling Stone 1 to 5 scale or the Pitchfork 1 to 10 scale. Instead, I, and hopefully all other Marlboro Marathon Runners will use the Kyle Scale Of Rating. Our good friend and partner in crime, Kyle Johnson/Satchmo Flask/Elmer Ray Johnson Jr. came up with this scale many years ago in his secret basement laboratory and it ranges from a low of 3 to a high of 7, including halves. So if we were to translate Pitchforks rating of Born to Run (30th anniversary edition), which was a 10.0/10.0 to the Kyle scale of rating, it would receive a perfect 7. So be on the lookout for this innovative new rating scale and for us to be using it in the near future.
