Usage[change | edit source]

This template is to be used in the "Professional reviews" section of {{Infobox Album}}, for reviews by Robert Christgau which use his specific rating system.

This template should only be used for Christgau-specific ratings (or "Christgau copycats," i.e. people who also use his rating system). Christgau's letter grade ratings should be output using plain text, like (B+). The symbols are similar to the ratings symbols used by Christgau in print (except for the scissors, for legibility at a small size). If the user clicks on a symbol they will be mapped through to the image page (example), which provides an explanation of the image's meaning.
