I absolutely dig these guys. Noodle-y guitars that contrast rough, emotional punk/emo vocals. perfection. I'm not sure why, but i always a get a feeling of child-like wonder from these songs; Every one has such energy and life, and it all feels very original and believable. I have a connection to this band i can't really understand or explain. I guess i just found them at the right time in my life. [First added to this chart: 07/16/2013]

Though nothing will ever be as groundbreaking or revolutionary as Kid A, nothing will ever be as wholesome, beautiful, or as complete as In Rainbows. It is nearly the best collection of songs onto one album for me. Every single one is an intricate masterpiece, flowing freely and easily into one another. It's like each song is a form of water: 15 step is a smooth river, Bodysnatchers is harsh, thrashing riptide, Nude is a cool lake at night, under a glowing moon, and weird fishes is deep into the ocean, vast and enveloping. I could ramble on, but i think you get the point. anyway, never have i stumbled upon such beauty in music. there comes a sort of understanding and familiarity to it for me, a feeling that was buried deep within myself, but awoken once i first heard it. To me, this is album encapsulates the best possible combination of emotion and creativity. [First added to this chart: 12/27/2013]

Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 7% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 87.5/100, a mean average of 88.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.6.

Really like this list and from the sounds of it I'd like the person behind it too. Keep it up with the notes, only thing I'd say is that there's a real dearth of pre-90s stuff (obviously) that makes me think there's a ton of older cuts you might be missing out on. Go get 'em!

Algernon Cadwallader #2 is a bold pick even though I prefer Parrot Files.

LOL, I'm a big gay and bastard about Wolfgang too!
I liked your decision to rank Funeral where it should be placed - in the middle of the chart. Most of the guys here love it too much.

Suggestions:

1. Check more albums by Phoenix and Vampire Weekend, especially It's Never Been Like That and Modern Vampires Of The City.
2. Both albums of Freelance Whales, especially Diluvia.
3. Soundtracks For Everyday Adventures by Lullatone.

Your comments for the first two entries are absolutely perfect!!! When you compared the songs from In Rainbows to different types of streams and rivers I probably lost my mind at how cool that simile was!!!!

Pretty good chart, but should probably include some older music (I can't really complain though, my chart is only 25% pre-2000)
I recommend trying The Velvet Underground's third album simply titled The Velvet Underground, and Disintegration by The Cure. Based on your picks I think you'd really dig those two.

There's so much right with this chart. Love the inclusions of In the Attic of the Universe, American Football and Microcastle. Needs more albums though; I want more recs!
