I bastardize iTunes 5-star rating system in the following way:

0 - Unreviewed / Undecided
1 - Delete this song, its aweful
2 - Good song, quality problem (I some ripped stuff and older stuff w/ pops,
clicks and skips)
3 - Crappy song
4 - Decent song
5 - Good song

I also cheat a bit, because there is a way to enable half (i.e.
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Enable-Half-Stars-In-Itunes/) stars
in iTunes and I use that to make from 3-5 a bit more granular.
