Rating System

This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).


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


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.
