I feel like GY!BE should be classified in some genre other then all other music. I really don't know ow to describe this besides, powerful, yet patient. my patience was a bit strained by the length of each 'song' but i somehow make it through. [First added to this chart: 05/04/2013]

I only heard about these guys last year and fell in love with this album immediately. Of course there's the obvious Clash influence, but they have a very distinct sound of there own. Plus the dual singers thing really works for them. Now their second album was decent but then they broke up i heard which is really a shame. anyway, they have songwriting talent to be jealous of, and songs that tell hilarious stories.(one about how Pete Doherty flipped off some guys, and another song about a guy they hate talking about how gay he is. good fun. Anyway, check it out for awesome modern punk stuff. [First added to this chart: 03/09/2013]

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 5% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 89.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.9.

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!
