This is about Proving By Science how good an album really is. Unfortunately it appears that EVERY album ever's true worth amounts to just 71% as Madonna's 'Like A Prayer' curiously scores the same as 'Thriller' and 'Please'. Enough of this 80s mediocrity! Now, if you please, join me in rating the following tracks from Pulp's 'Different Class' album out of ten:

This is about Proving By Science how good an album really is. We've previously analysed 'Thriller' and 'Please' only to find that both ended up scoring 71%. Can the last of the three albums selected from the 80s top them? Now, if you please, join me in rating the following tracks from Madonna's 'Like A Prayer' album out of ten:

This is about Proving By Science how good an album really is. The first album to be rated was Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' and it scored 63.75 out of a possible 90 giving it a very respectable 71%. So we now know for sure, conclusively, without doubt, that 71% of 'Thriller' as an album is good, or 7 out of 10 if you will - and this seems about right (even tho the urge in the past may have to been to hail the album as a true classic, it transpires that is not quite the case and that it is a handful of particularly excellent singles that have afforded it this status). A satisfying moment for the Poptimists Science Team now follows...

Now, if you please, join me in rating the following tracks from the Pet Shop Boys' 'Please' album out of ten:

This is about Proving By Science how good an album REALLY is. How do you do this? The best way to go about it is to mark each track out of ten and then calculate a percentage from the total score. So that is what we're going to do!

Instructions: simply give each track from the album below a mark out of ten by clicking the corresponding radio button - it's that simple!

If you've not heard the song before or need a reminder there are several ways you can remedy this. if you have iTunes you can search for the album on there and listen to the 30 second clips - or you can use Amazon and other sites in a similar way. If the song was released as a single you may well find the video on YouTube.

If you've not heard the song and can't hear it you could either not mark it (if you dislike the artist generally) or give it a 5 for balance if you do like the artist generally (seems fair to me all in all).

The first album to be rated will be Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'. If the experiment proves popular and successful I'll do two more albums from the 80s and then three from the 90s and 00s over the next few weeks.
