### RARB Reviewer Overall Score - Really?

Posted:

**Thu Oct 04, 2012 1:10 pm**So I'm commenting on the recent review of Clemson TIgeroar's "On The Hunt." A particular reviewer whom I will not name (but can easily be found on the review page) gave Tigeroar the following ratings in the 6 judged categories:

Tuning/blend: 2

Energy/intensity: 2

Innovation/creativity: 3

Sound/production: 4

Repeat listenability: 3

Soloists: 3

These ratings average out to 2.833, and yet the reviewer gave the album an overall rating of 2. Based on simple rounding, shouldn't the group have received an overall rating of 3? If someone could explain this to me then it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
