Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by manurock (2020)
More than "100 best ever albums" this chart is better defined with "The 100 albums I have so far most enjoyed listening to", it doesn't necessarily mean they are the most talented music so far (in that case I would have included jazz and classical music!).
Chart of the day 4 times (04/2014, 10/2017, 07/2018 and 09/2019), since November 2019 I have made a big change. Now, Phideaux is at #1; I still think Pink Floyd is the best band every but I feel Doomsday Afternoon deserves this spot. Also, a Spanish 2010's band has risen to the top 10. This chart was made in 2014 and the albums from the previous decade have a place in my heart but I am making an effort to make more recent albums I love climb up.
Thank you so much for rating it so well and for giving me such good comments and reccomendations. I hope you still do from now on :)

I remember when I watched them at Summer's End Festival in the UK. They were very nervous, still it was beautiful to hear these 10 people play their best songs, including nearly all of this album. After the show, I was able to talk with Phideaux Xavier and he was really nice with me. They weren't gonna make any profit from this concert, but they found the experience of playing in Europe fascinating. Nearly as fascinating as this concept album, which I agree with him, is his masterpiece.
Now, a decade after, my skin still shivers when I listen to it. That is why it has risen to #1. [First added to this chart: 03/06/2014]
Unfortunately, due to my age, I haven't had the pleasure of watching Pink Floyd live. However, luckily, there are many bands which make live shows of Pink Floyd and I highly reccommend the spanish "Pink Tones". They dragged me into their atmosphere. Also, recently I went to the Pink Floyd exhibition in Madrid and loved it, especially that mixing table of "Money" in which you can change the volume of the instruments and vocals.

Lately I have realised how important this album was to widespread the music I loved. This type of music is present in quite a few of the albums in my chart, ie Sound of Lies or Las Consecuencias, so it deserves this high position on my chart. Even more when I enjoyed so much his concert in 2016's Mad Cool when, despite being 70,he showed that he still has lots of energy and good music to deliver. [First added to this chart: 03/06/2014]

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings

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 4% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 89.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.8.

Jackson Browne is a master songwriter.
Surprisingly great variety, seeing DSOTM at #1 too often results in a boring list, but I really like yours
Great eclectic collection!!
Love the personal feel. A lot of stuff I haven’t heard before, but judging from what I have heard, I’m looking forward to exploring some new music based on your suggestions.
I like your chart. There is homage to some big early albums in there but even as you get into the 70's it's not all the classics you expect.
You are short on 80's stuff - but there isn't enough time to consume everything. I would suggest a couple of albums from this era that you might like:
Making Movies by Dire Straits since you already called them out
Talking Heads - Remain in Light
Joy Division - Closer
Simple Minds - Street Fighting Years
The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow
Loving the love for Supertramp and Muse. Floyd are amazing.
I'm in a slightly different zone for your more recent albums but things like Steven Wilson are on my agenda and will get to some of your picks since I like what you choose that I do know.
Loving the comments - I think it adds so much to see why someone picked it and give us an idea what to expect.
Oh and I'm still not digging Joni Mitchell's Blue nor really focusing on the lyrics - it still feels like a sad album to me - lol
King Crimson's first album might be the first successful prog rock album, but it is not the first. The first which I consider is a great prog album is Second Hand's Reality from 1968. An overlooked masterpiece in my opinion.
Good chart though.
One of the best and most interesting charts I've seen. Love the addition of a few Phideaux albums, still have yet to hear Doomsday. Chupacabra is great! Just listened to Crisis? What Crisis? Today by Supertramp, love it! Crime, Crisis and Quietest are my three favorites. Awesome list. Also love the addition of Riverside!
nice and diversive !!
Nice to see a wide range of known and "unknown" albums
