Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by JeffN999 (2020)

Decided not to include live albums but then I included two of them....no real logic to it. If I included live albums my chart would be loaded with a ridiculous number of Pearl Jam live albums and bootlegs so it made sense to leave them off in order to provide a more balanced chart. But then I included Nirvana's unplugged album and the Talking Heads Stop Making Sense. Ah well....it's my chart and I guess I can do whatever I want even if its inconsistent.

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 17% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 85.7/100, a mean average of 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 10.2.
