With all of the risk that I am undertaking with this review method, it is this category that provides the most uncertainty, and is certainly the most questionable in terms of how to rate music.  If I were only judging musical quality and wanted to find the best album, this category would not be needed; I would be fine with reviewing music based on the other three categories.  However, I am not just looking for the best, I am looking for the greatest.  There is a difference, and the difference is the inclusion of this last category.  Essentially, this category will take into account the historical importance and popularity of the music, as well as the traceable influential effects it can have on other music.  It is not judging anything overtly musical, and it is weighted less than the other categories.
This category sets up a paradox: how can I scale and give value to something intangible?  When definitively rating music like this, it is only right to honor the music that has, for whatever reason, risen to high status within the music world.  This is to ensure that influential and important music gets a rating that they better deserve when going up against music of all kinds.
This category is scored out of 30 points.
