That is a fair assessment, and you are right to an extend. Except rather then giving it a rating for all time use, when I rate an album a 9.5 or 10, I usually just mean that more towards the best of the year rather then the best ever (although one album in particular is one of my favorites of all time)

But I probably won't rate my top 20, as they are my top 20. Rating them the highest seems redundant
I enjoyed OMNI but it is probably my least favorite of theirs. I agree that the new album is a good blend of their different eras.

Makes sense, thanks for the clarification.
