Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by jdizzle123456 (2020)

This is always changing obviously. Always looking for recommendations in my comments. I'm a somewhat young man, going through phases where I explore certain artists. Anyway, enjoy I suppose. I now have been on this website for 6 years and I truly and deeply appreciate it. I've found so much great music through here and I appreciate you all.

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 2% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.2.

I'd already given this chart a rating but seeing as it's chart of the day I thought I'd leave a comment.

Firstly, I can't believe I only rated this an 85!! Sure the albums here are largely brilliant, but it's the notes you've written for your first five picks that really stands out; I love your tone and form, I cannot wait to see some more writing. It's music fans like yourself that make this website worthwhile.

You've rated a lot more stuff than me which suggests that you know your stuff better than I could tell you, but since you've asked for recommendations, here's a few I think you might enjoy that don't already appear on my (admittedly short) overall chart (which incidentally you might enjoy looking through):

Amon Düül II - Yeti
Comus - First Utterance
Gavin Bryars - The Sinking Of The Titanic
Meredith Monk - Dolmen Music

very nice chart, to include lots of classic and some "surprises" as Coheed and Cambria...

An interesting chart. It makes me wonder what your full one would look like. I understand the struggle of trying to organize the hundred greatest albums of all time, but I've found one must just work on it in little chunks. My chart will probably never be "finished"

Nice, strange combinations with modern hip hop and some classics being in the top 20, but good nontheless. Love the Coheed & Cambria choice though! 26 in common, too.
