Enable half star ratings in Apple’s new Music app

Apple is soon to release the latest version of macOS, 10.15 aka Catalina, and with that it replaces iTunes with 3 separate apps: Music, Podcasts and TV.

If you used to have half star ratings enabled in iTunes you need to re-enable those for the new Music app. To do so, open terminal and type (or paste) the following command:

defaults write com.apple.Music allow-half-stars -bool TRUE

Now, Music should (more or less instantly) show your half star ratings, again.
