You gave a stellar review to Toy Caldwell's "Son of the South," but only 3 stars?

Yep.
That one probably will stand.

His "Album Pick" is at 4 stars and the other very good albums in his discography are marked as 3 stars.
The ratings within his discography are consistent.

More detail on how the editors assign ratings can be found here:

How do you determine an AllMusic rating? 

TiVo editors use a 1 to 5 star system. It is important to note that albums are rated only within the scope of an artist's own work; we won't compare a Miles Davis album to the latest album by Britney Spears.

We'll have to agree to disagree. Yes, the "Album Pick" is at 4-stars, but technically there is only one other album, Son of the South, which is a reissue of the album that came before the "Album Pick."  I would argue that in a discography of two, when both are given great reviews, they can and should each get at least four stars.
