Love this chart. Not only for the fact that you have Blackstar in the top 10, but also because you have an interesting little bell curve across the decades from the 60s to the 2010s. I'd be interested to see what this chart would look like had you included jazz.

Excellent! Although I think Blackstar is just temporarily number 3, it sure isn't the best Bowie album? Great, but not the best
