Ordering by score is interesting, because it gives you the "greatest hits" for that rating. For example, here are the journals with the highest 'great read' scores:

And here are the highest rated pics on crazyguyonabike:

I think this is about as close as you're going to get to a consensus-driven recommendation system, because the ratings are entirely driven by the community. If a lot of people have rated a journal as 'great read', then it's probably worth a look.
