    Default Outside of games does anyone rank their opera collection?

    So a strange question but one I find myself wondering...

    Does anyone else for their own amusement/memory aid rank the opeas in their collection?

    I mean I do both so I know works to bother coming back to and to help me decide what to listen to. I use a tier system generally and have been known to write reviews.

    Not specifically, but I could use my Artrockometer tier system for operas. Wagner's Ring and Puccini's Tosca score 6/6.

    Me neither, just the way the wind blows.

    I sort of have a rough one in my head, but I often listen to the lesser ranked ones as I haven't listened to them as much as my favourites.

    Thanks for the insights!

    I suspected I was in the minority.

    No that would mean some organisation on my part! But I might find what I've got of course!

    Of course I have my preferences but I don't exactly rank them (I can say which are my favourites etc but it's not formal enough to call it a ranking).

    I have favorites but they also change with time. I am with The Conte above that the favorites may and usually not coincide with the better "ranked" ones.
