Hi there! We'll se us at

I don't wholly agree with you there. I think that filmtracks has the most diverse rating system of all the Soundtrack pages out there. You have to consider how different people are; some own all Star Wars scores, some own none, some are soundtrack fanatics, some are occasional listeners. You can't just slap one rating on the review, in my opinion.
A review should inform as many people as possible and not everyone wants to read through such a long text, so second or third ratings are inevitable I think.

Concerning your Horner comparison: I don't know if you can draw parallels there. Without a doubt there is a difference between reviewing a part of a trilogy (ROTS) and reviewing a standalone movie (Horner).
You have to see Williams' work in context, whereas Horner is regurgitating his stuff for films that are completely independent from each other.
