Five Out of Five is a new writing series at Bitter Melodies on any album from history that deserves your typical “5 star” review. The project intends to not only highlight and go in-depth on the greatest albums of all time but also to set the parameters for what a “5 star” album should sound like. The “5 star” signifier is too often flippantly used on albums that simply can’t compare to the best of all time; it has to be a very specific category or a 5-star review is rendered meaningless. The order in which these albums are written about is of no significance as it’s completely random. Hopefully by the end of this series, the albums written about add up to a clear “5 star” canon of albums that every avid music listener should have knowledge of.
