We're approaching the time of year when end of years lists start to crop up across the internet, and since the thread was started, we now have the possibility of combining those lists into the 2012 chart here.

The proposed method of submitting these lists is via custom charts. If a custom chart is a copy from a recognised source (defined earlier in this thread), and it is an overall, year, or decade chart, you can apply to get this chart seen as 'recognised' and it will then count towards the overall rankings. To do this, visit the admin page for a chart, and submit a data correction. We could also back-fill previous years via this method.

Charts from recognised sources must not themselves be aggregate lists. Any chart that is promoted, will no longer appear as being from your account, but will be credited as being from the original source.

To make this a bit more fluid, if anybody has created a custom chart based on the rankings of an external source, and the chart meets the criteria defined elsewhere in this thread, then please post the following info in this thread:

1. A link to your custom chart on BEA
2. The title of the chart (as it appears on the source website)
3. A link to the chart on the source website so that BEA can link back to it (also helps us double check the details etc).

A massive thanks to DanielNunes93 for all of the 2017 charts that he has already provided. Applause

Fair enough,

Good criteria for charts, but let's take it a step futher - albums should be dropped if they are compilations, soundtracks, feature covers, or feature primarily songs not written by the Artist performing them.

Also, I'm not sure, but do you have a chart on your site that consolidates the information from the 8 recognised charts and produces a definitive Top 100? Couldn't find one.

Great website, keep up the good work.

In Harrington’s list – which was a landmark for me as a listener when I devoured it in the early 2000s – he says:
Joe S. Harrington wrote:
They also have to be albums created as singular works – no various-artist compilations qualified, which I thought was only fair, since they’re actually a programmer’s concept more than anything. It meant Nuggets, This is Boston Not LA and several volumes of Lee “Scratch” Perry’s classic sixties work had to be omitted, which in a way was heartbreaking – after all, an album’s an album, right? Because I also refused to allow greatest hits – so say goodbye to Chuck Berry’s Golden Decade, Marvin Gaye’s Super Hits and even James Brown’s Funky People. These have to be albums intended as albums – because half of what always made the LP record an art form was this kind of singularity.
The interesting thing is that, if we follow Harrington’s logic, we could also exclude:

archival albums – released posthumously or after a band disbanded, like Karen Dalton’s Green Rocky Road
remix albums like Björk’s Telegram (arguably my favourite album of hers)

I find that excluding those on Harrington’s criteria or yours is going rather far, although I do see a reason for not including compilations of recordings that are on other albums.
