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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.3.

Not very surprising list, a lot of the same ol’ artists. You might like Vampire Weekend.

Really nice chart with a great mix of artists, though maybe a little too much of a modern focus. I was about to say it would be nice to see some write-ups but it looks like from other people's comments you used to have some really great ones ... where have they gone?? :(

Oh man LOVE your descriptions of the top several albums. Gotta check out more stuff from here, really one of the most interesting charts I've seen in the last couple of months. 2 per artist works really well, I'll probably switch to that system as well. I'll surely rate the chart again when I find the time to listen to The National and several more things here!

It's 100 from me too! I really like this chart, it has modern music and outright classics on it. Hard to argue with Dark Side at no 1 although I have Wish You Were Here as my no 1. Some great variety, one or two surprises and a few for me to check out. Nice work all round.

Your taste intrigues me to say the least. :)
It's a really good variety. I'm familiar with your top 8. While I really did enjoy Alt-J I'm surprised to see them up there with Tame Impala, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, and Kendrick Lamar, all people both old and new I remember catching my interest.
I'm also surprised how many albums from the 2010's you have listed. Particularly from 2016. I think you should listen to a bit more stuff from the 90's because that decade is pretty underrepresented in my opinion.
I recommend Cake, Eels, or Smashing Pumpkins because I think those bands would fit your taste somewhat. :)
