Description

The rating system allows users to rate MusicBrainz entities (artists, labels, release groups, recordings, events, works).

Details

User may assign a value between 1 and 5 to various entities as a rating, these values are then aggregated by the server to compute an average community rating for that same entity.

The community rating is shown by default for each entity, however, once a user submits their own rating that value will be shown instead.
