Initial listen: 2011 ~ The best 8 track sequence for an album ever. From beginning to end, this is my favourite album to discover more with each listen. [First added to this chart: 01/22/2011]

Initial listen: 2004 ~ Influential to many artists over the years but personally, an important album. This album signified the end of my teenage years and inspired me not only in my acting but in my writing. [First added to this chart: 06/21/2010]

Initial listen: 2007 ~ 10 tracks, no filler. Unlike other Radiohead albums, each song has its place in the order and can equally be listened to outside of the strucutre. Reckoner is a highlight. [First added to this chart: 06/21/2010]

Initial listen: 2003 ~ First Bowie album I bought and has stuck in my mind ever since. The perfect concept album from the arrival to departure of a fallen rock star. [First added to this chart: 09/21/2010]

Initial listen: 2003 ~ If the world was collapsing around me, the soundtrack of the demise would be Absolution. Even though they may show strong influences from previous bands, their talent is not lost on many listeners and fans. [First added to this chart: 06/21/2010]

Initial listen: 2007 ~ A recent rediscovery that lends itself to criticism over its length. However the five songs are crafted in such a way that the bookends of Shine On You Crazy Diamond seem to go forever and fade in eternity. [First added to this chart: 06/21/2010]

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 has a Bayesian average rating of 84.3/100, a mean average of 83.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 12.7.

Really cool chart! Air in the top ten that's cool. Anastasis by Dead Can Dance is so good I need to buy it! Just recently got War Stories by UNKLE. Where Did the Night Fall is even better but War Stories is definitely good. Only one in common but you have a bunch of great albums on here. I'll have to check out that Elbow album from last year, didn't realize they put one out. Checked out this chart cuz you liked the new Poliça.
