I can see from the list of music currently in your possession that you have the album by McDonald & Giles. Do you have any plan to review it? Personally, I really really like it; I would probably give it somewhere around a C on your scale. "Suite in C" is a forgotten gem, and I would take "Flight of the Ibis" over "Cadence and Cascade" nine times of ten. I laughed my ass off the first time I heard "The Workshop" (from "Birdman") as the drum and bass groove in the beginning reminded me so much of the ending song from Grease.
Also, have you heard the Brondesbury Tapes compilation by Giles, Giles & Fripp? If not, you should; Starostin's review says it all but I would even consider giving it a 13 (or D, in your case). Most of the (properly recorded) songs are phenomenal.
