Book Description


The Art of Rating Music is a journey into the world of music exploration.

The book provides practical and conceptual context to one of the biggest challenges in today’s music landscape – how to match listeners with their music.

This book covers the principles of music rating, and shows how to adopt the concept towards expanding music exploration and having a blast on everyday music sessions.

Music rating systems are an essential missing component in today’s music landscape.
Many services have emerged trying to solve this problem, providing users with star ratings, numeric scale ratings, likes, votes, recommendations and alike.

However, none of these services have proved to really measure the quality of music, nor have they succeeded to provide true music ratings.

The Art of Rating Music introduces the principles of music rating systems, the concept, the benefits, and the practical use of applying music ratings.

The book goes beyond music rating – from a tool that efficiently measures the quality of music, to a working system that makes better selections of music, and ultimately the adoption of the concept towards expanding music exploration; – having a blast on every music session.


“AllMusicRating is the best help I’ve found when it comes to rating music albums, and it made me reconsider all the albums I’ve listened to – starting from 0 all over again.”

Niels Gheyle – Ghent, Belgium

How to Rate Music – Beyond music ratings

. . .

In an era of mass music media that begs for better music selection – music rating services are now providing ‘healthier’ choices of music, benefiting the audience, and supporting the music business.


Time and awareness that would take to educate music consumers to these new music rating services, would eventually pay off and bring more music – relevant music – to listeners, and keep everyone happy.

This is for you, for the serious music lover, who has a large music collection, and listens to tons of music – constantly.


Music influencers who follow evolving new services should take special notice to the introduction of this new service in the music landscape.


Music rating services have inherent power to boost up music discovery.


Why, and how?

There is a void today, where the lack of a standard for quantifying and measuring the quality of music is preventing the proper management of music.

Listeners are fed with music by recommendations that do not always match, and do not fit everyone.

Unlike, and opposed to these recommendations, music rating services make a natural perfect fit for helping music consumers organize, categorize, manage music content, and tag music by quality.


So, how can music rating boost music discovery?
Music ratings can boost music discovery by screening out irrelevant content, arranging music by quality, and by presenting this content in an organized structure.


When you have the capability to measure a process or an event, you can then manage it efficiently.

The music audience was never before given the opportunity to be familiar with these capabilities because of the lack of appropriate means; There was simply not a system available, a working system that could “truly” rate music efficiently on a high resolution of quality.

But that’s all about to change. Soon.


Fact 1:
You, actually we all, are saturated with massive music content – old and new music.


Fact 2:
We do not have the appropriate means to make better selections of music.


And so, everybody is complaining.

– Music consumers cannot handle so many choices of “mega music content.”

– Creators are complaining about low royalties because: There is no real loyalty in a reality of “fast music consumption.”


Fact 3: Music selection is almost random and coincident, and at the end of the day it is very hard to follow and track music.

And what can you do about it?

1. You could go on following recommendations with music discovery services, but that does not always work, and it does not suit everybody.

2. You could search music by yourself, read about music, research, follow favorite shows, ask, listen to radio and streamers, and find what’s right for you.
Results would then be excellent, but
… that’s really hard work.

3. And… You could make your own music selections, focused on what is relevant to you – by your own taste, with the assistance of music ratings.

Forget those next-after-next recommendations.
Your own music selections, your own taste – right on – without skipping.

I know; you have your doubts and questions about this, so let’s take this one step at the time.

And I know that you have to be encouraged to respond.

So, – for the love of musicp l e a s e,

– take a minute and share your thoughts,

– tell us if you are in favor of rating music,

– or not,

– and why?

Your feedback will help by all means.
Negative feedback will make us improve, and positive feedback would charge us with more energy to boost up this free music rating web-service.



For the love of music!

Allmusicrating Launches its First Music Rating Web Service

Tel-Aviv, IL April 13, 2017 – allmusicrating (2017) has launched this morning its first music rating system called EARs©. The Essential Album Rating System is an application and a database that measures the quality of music providing “True music ratings©” of individual tracks, complete albums, artists, and music of all genres. MuicMix 6x5 Web - allmusicrating The company says that their system which is driven by a web based community of users, “rates music in proportion to their TIME length where longer tracks of similar ranked music are rewarded with higher ratings that express their true value contribution to the album and to listeners”.
“Music discovery services are now trying to suggest new bands and new music to listeners, but what is happening is that users are blasted with recommendations that are offering ‘more of the same'”,
says Elias, the founder of EARs.
“What we are trying to do is provide users with a service of making their own music selection’s, based on their own taste”.
The Essential Album Rating System EARs©, is described as a “fresh new concept for advanced users to maximize music exploration, by making better music selections”.
“The inability of the multi-billion dollar music business to address this long awaited need to provide a standard, and a capability to evaluate and measure the quality of music, remains a mystery. We therefore believe that our new rating system will add significant value to the music fan, the music business, and to the serious music enthusiasts”,
says Elias. To emphasize the need of this system Elias uses a quote from Peter Drucker:
“If you can’t Measure it, You cannot Manage it”.
It remains to see how the music business will respond to this initiative.

How to rate music banner - web

The purpose of this article is to show you how to rate music, and tell you what it takes for a system to do exactly just that.

If we could have placed our music on a measurable scale, and tagged it by its quality, it would have then proved to be very helpful in making better music selections and managing large collections of music.
The secret key, the path to making the right music selections when spontaneous is lost, is to place all our music on one accepted measuring scale, a solid baseline from which we could compare, categorize, and organize music to match our preferences with greater ease.  

1. False consensus over music ratings

“Why should I rate music? Music is here to enjoy, not to rate”.
Yes, this is a good and a hard question that even the serious-minded music lovers would question themselves, debate over it and doubt it. Our choices of music are today almost unlimited with type, style, genre and performers. How else can we practically concentrate on our music liking, focus the choices towards our own preferences and make better selections of music? There is a false-consensus over the use of music ratings that unnecessarily denies the so many benefits to listeners. This is a good opportunity to explain why it is perfectly “safe” and healthy to practice music ratings.  
Our main purpose in using music ratings is to make better music selections.
  A good rating system can help us to better organize-categorize-compare and classify music, and help us discover new recordings by relating to their value. There are many more things that these ratings could do for us. We will cover them here.  

2. Ranking vs. Rating

Music is a form of art that connects to the mind and soul. It’s about feeling, touching, moving, sensing it, connecting to relevant events and times, having fun with, engaging, and everything that makes up a relationship that we human define as love. Because of all that complexity, we can only value music by asking how much we love it, how good was it as an experience, and how much would it make us want to repeat that experience over and over — again and again. Let’s dive in and begin with two really important definitions, and then get straight to our point of how to rate music.

2A. Music Ranking

Music Ranking -

2B. Music Rating

Since we are not yet at the age of measuring feelings, we got to trust our inner guts, and express the total experience in relative terms — we have to at first rank music, and then try to express that in terms of rating. For practical sake, ranking music — tracks or songs, gives us a pretty good idea over the quality of any given music. If we can refer to a song by a rank that says ‘Poor’ or ‘Very Good’ or a ‘Master Piece’, then, that is a good enough of a description that will tell us what to expect as to it’s quality. Ratings are a better way to express the quality of albums (not tracks) because of differences in time lengths. A ‘Good’ album that runs for 38 minutes does not have the same value compared to another ‘Good’ album that runs for 78 minutes… Therefore, we say that those two albums are similar in quality, they are both ‘Good’ albums, but the 78-minute has a higher value for maintaining that quality over a longer period of time — more than the-38 minute album.  
If you like the idea of rating music over time length, you can check out more on that down at the bottom of this article, where we introduce the first True music rating service, ever…
  Our first step is therefore to rank music on a relative scale. Then we can convert each rank by a determined set of values, to a scoring number that sets our music rating.  

3. How to rank music?

With all said, here is a suggested ranking scale of 8 ranks that cover the spectrum of possibilities for any given music. This is the same ranking table that is used by the allmusicrating rating system. For sake of convenience these eight ranks are placed in three groups:   1 OUT – the very low ranked music that we normally skip over, on a regular playing session.   2 IN + the mainstream common good quality ranked music that makes up the body of a good session.   3 OUTSTANDING +++ top ranked music that elevates any music session to an unforgettable experience. And these are the 8 ranks: Ranking Table Table-1 Ranking Table  

4. Beyond Music Ratings

Let’s now discuss the principles of ranking and rating music, how we should approach this, and take a quick look at what are the main considerations. I won’t get into the obvious environment issues such as surroundings, sound system, the timing and whatever keeps you at your highest mood for a good music session. These are all self-explanatory and personal considerations that should be determined individually by the listener. Here are the important points that one has to keep in mind while listening and ranking music:

a) Acquaintance

You have to be acquainted with the music you are about to rank and rate. Acquaintance is very individual and subject to the complexity of the music, and to the experience of the listener.

b) Context

Music has to be ranked by its own appeal, and also by the full context, meaning that we should ask ourselves how much we like it, how it connected with the other tracks, how it maintained the flow within the album, and how much did it shine compared to the other pieces. There is a big difference between ranking individual music tracks by themselves, alone, and by ranking them within the complete original album. The complete album is home to that music, it’s where it belongs, where they connect, fit into a theme, and groove in a flow of the complete piece of art.  
“Together we stand, divided we fall”…

c) Music consistency

Certain tracks are difficult to rate. Some of the reasons that make it hard to rank and rate music could be: changes in the mood of the music within itself, changes in its power, melody, tempo, because of complexity, or perhaps because the music was just too long and had many ‘ups’ and ‘downs’. Whatever reasons of uncertainty are there, the way to go by, is to consider its overall quality, trying to average the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ and mainly by comparing that track to other tracks on the album — see next point.

d) Relativity

Music could also be ranked and rated in comparison. That’s when you use the relative judgment by comparing that unknown ranking track to something else, preferably of the same artist, and within the same album.

e) Complexity

Consider the complexity of music. Smaller tracks (in length) that sound great at first hearings tend to loose attractiveness within time as they “burn out” on us. And the opposite is the case with longer and complex music where early listening may not expose their potential, but after few hearings they begin to sink in and open up. When you attempt to rank complex music, make sure that you do that only after you got very well acquainted with it, whatever amount of sessions and hearings would it take.

f) Wear off

There is a lifespan to our excitement for any given music. What it means is that music, does ‘wear off’ and lose attraction after too many listening’s in a burn out rate that usually relates to its complexity. Complex music could, in fact, gain more appreciation over time, where common popular music fades and makes place for new comers.

g) Early releases

Early releases are quite often the very special and the best output of most artists. They capture sounds and spirits that would never repeat again for that given growing musician. Sounds of youth. Sounds of fresh and raw material, aggressive, eager, furious, brave and yet naive artists that just want their art to make a difference, and make that change in this world. These early recordings are the fruit of ideas, and work that had all the time in the world to develop, up to that point in life when they finally break out. The fame and pressure that follows the early success typically take their toll on the artist and kill much of that creativity that made them rise up to the top. And so, most musicians are only famous for accounting just a few of their albums which carry on their legend for many years. Typically, their best music is what they had released in their first few years of professional music creation. Sure, some — but not too many of these musicians are fortunate to develop, build up on talent and creativity, and expand their music and career. Pay special attention to the early releases of your favorite artist. They are usually worth much more than what you have initially thought.

h) Lyrics and music-melody

Lyrics and music connect like body and soul.
  Lyrics have much more significance than the meaning of their words. Those words may not always connect and make sense, but they serve music in so many other ways. Lyrics carry the music. They give music power, motion, beat, and life. Lyrics may lift up the music, move it around, lower it softly, roll it, shake it, give it a dimension of life and a beat, and frame up the music into sections.  
Lyrics make up the body of music.
  And while lyrics are so significant in the structure of some of the major musical works, it is the music itself, the melody that shapes and make music what it is; the king of popular art. Without music-melody, the words turn to poems. Some of the greatest genres are all about pure music, such as Classical music and great portions of Jazz music. And then, some music is all about the lyrics, where the artist turns over the conventional structure and uses the lyrics as the body and the soul of their work, leaving the melody as only secondary. A good example for this is ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. The melody is really simple and almost unnoticeable, but then comes in the lyrics that turn it into a masterpiece. An even better example is the music of Leonard Cohen who was very minimal on melody, and based most of his music on verbal content.

i) Music artwork

Music artwork, or as we see it in the design of vinyl and CD packages has a role in delivering a certain experience. The artwork serves as an eye catcher — a glimpse to the musical adventure that’s hidden within the album, inside that package. And when impressively done, it can transform our mind into that world of music. A good example of impressing artwork is in the early albums of Yes (it’s the name of a progressive band…). Another example of remarkable artwork that practically shifts the mind into the musical scene is the original triple sleeve for the audio soundtrack of Woodstock. Check out these artwork examples in the following images. Music artwork that inspires the experience. Remarkable artwork - These are all important considerations that influence our ruling, and when we know about them, and when we are aware to their role, we can then make better judgments and end up with solid ratings.  

5. How to turn your music session into a blast?

You begin with your music set to a nice decent volume. Loud music is not a crime. Concert halls, theaters, cinemas, they all have their systems cranked up for a good reason. I keep my volume high and loud leaving just a little room for an “extra mile” for highlights that develop deep into the session. At any given setup, surrounding, environment and set conditions, the one and most important factor that determines the quality of your music session, above anything else, is the music content itself — the music that you have chosen to be played. Your perfect selection would answer as many of the following questions: If it is relevant, if it’s authentic, if it is timed well, if it fits into the mood, if it’s been a while since you’ve heard it, if it has been missed – and… if you have made the right selection.  
There is no formula to this magic of a perfect music session, but music ratings are your best friends in selecting relevant music that would strike on the moment, and get you closer to your perfect music session.
  We human are normally tempted and feel safe to repeat what has already worked well for us; what we feel comfortable with; and so when it comes to playing music, we naturally go and select the obvious safe big hits; we go for albums that are milestones in music, and we go with the top rated artists and select their best work. Repeating this habit, this framework of a ‘natural’ choice is boring, it is repetitive, it is overused, and it’s a lazy habit that burns out and leaves us with just another ‘OK’ session, nothing special, and nothing great. Few choices are easy to handle… Concentrating repeatedly on the best music that represents just a portion of a typical collection does not hold in the long run. More choices mean more variety and excitement. But when we are given almost unlimited choices — we then have a problem figuring out what’s best for that moment. At this point, music ratings can help us tremendously. We can use ratings to ‘dig-in deeper’ into music and screen out what’s not relevant. Music ratings are not just a key component, but THE factor that makes or break music sessions.  
I got tons of music in my collection but I simply just cannot remember them all. Who can?
  Music ratings are the map to music content. You then see the big picture. It gives you more options to work out different paths into music exploration. There are all of those “other” albums; the unfamiliar albums that you have no clue what’s hidden inside them; that you have no idea how and where to find their hidden treasures. Music ratings give you access to so much of more music that otherwise you would never get to explore. And a great portion of that undiscovered music is already there in your own collection, but it’s hidden in the dust; or maybe hidden in a lost digital track that’s buried down thousands of other.  
Music ratings will help you manage your music content efficiently. It will give you better answers as to: What to play now, what to play next, when, and how to arrange the order of your music selections — towards that perfect session, and all over again…

6. This is how I manage my physical music collection

I have a rating card attached and inserted into every single album in my collection… Yes I know, it may sound weird and awkward, but — It maps my music by individual tracks, and by complete albums. These ratings tell me the essence of every track, every album, the highlights, the main body of my music content, and it helps me manage my music sessions, every time I listen to music. This manual card system was the foundation for building the first True music rating system as a web-service. The common thought today is that it is almost sinful to “listen” to a rating system that would interfere in our judgment and in our own human feelings. But the truth is that music ratings express our feelings and our judgment over music. When we rank a given track as a ‘Good” track, we only document that as a rating, for our convenience. It is not only safe to adopt ratings into our listening habits, but in today’s reality of massive music content, it gives us an easy choice to screen out the noise and focus on “our” relevant music.

What made me get into such an enormous project, into so much work, time, money and resources that it took to build this place.
Well, this website was made for the love of music – sweet love…

Lennon and McCartney wrote in their last song called The End, which was the final song on Abbey Road:
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” (or give)…

Music has given us humans so much joy, comfort and pleasure or whatever else it had given you.
I prefer summarizing all of that good giving into one word, Love.

EARs© at allmusicrating is a vision to accomplish this love at a higher level of professional music listening.
This vision is for YOU, the ones who breathe music day by day.
For you who “live music” as a cause and as a force to life, far and beyond just the passion.

When music became just another track out of million others, that’s when it lost its artistic value.

In an article recently published by Paul Resnikoff, he wraps up the facts that detail all the problems that are killing the music business, the industry the artists, and eventually music as the form of art that we all love.

This is so depressing to read, yet so true, that the earlier we deal with, the better.
Paul’s article had me inspired to take action and write this in response.

We have to do our best to save music!

Honestly, I’ve been breaking my head like anyone else in this business, thinking what is going wrong.


Music had turned in the last few decades into a commodity that is consumed and then dumped, downloaded for free and then deleted. When music became just another track out of million others, that’s when it lost its artistic value.


Saving the shrinking music business, its cause and its future in the wider perspective is going to be very hard to do if we count only on business Initiatives alone.

The major companies and big labels are mostly focused on their own survival. They perform by concerns over their balance sheets and profits, and these considerations are again working against the business in its whole.

Music needs help on a global level just like other big causes, such as fighting pollution, hunger, and disease and alike. Awareness and concerns over these problems should be raised to higher levels of decision makers.

A multinational nonprofit collaboration in the form of “Save Music” initiative that would seek support from international funding, large cooperation’s, and whoever feels that music is a necessity. Just like feeding mankind and healing the sick.

The complexity of this long and ongoing illness of the music business, with so many major problems adding up in a series of rolling events throughout the last few decades, has brought the business to the verge of collapsation.

We, therefore, have to deal with solutions that cover the entire spectrum of these causes.

From social and educational ideas to technical and musical solutions, into business framework and then following with legislation, and it’s enforcement.

This is definitely not the end — the music business will eventually have to face this and rescue itself by joining forces with alike the above-suggested initiatives and work out a new structure.

We have to find the way to make music accessible to everyone and at the same time make this worth to the artists and the supporting music business.

Whatever solutions and however solved, the first thing to do is to reclaim and educate the public and the audience that music, at its first, is ART !!!
Precious valuable ART.

The purpose of this post is to awaken up awareness to the crisis in the music business.
I know that this topic is all over in many variations, but the only way to change matters are by bringing this up again and again, creating awareness that would in result create more engagement and finally make a difference that will change, and correct things.


We have been spoiled in recent decades and have all sinned in taking music for granted as a free service, when music should really be looked upon as nutrition to our mind and calmness to our souls.


If we want to enjoy quality music as we did in the 50’s throughout the 90’s, we should then support the business, its creators, and the whole chain that delivers it to us.


What goes around comes around.
Feed the business so they continue feeding us. Be fair, and pay for the music you are listening to, and appreciate what you get in return.


We can make this work. Support “Save Music”. Respond, share, like, talk about this. … Just do what is right.


For the love of music!
