Top 100 Music Albums of the 2010s by Arthurknight (2022)

2010s was both the decade I began seriously exploring music, using this site, and committedly following new release schedules. Consequently, I've been trying to listen to as much as possible and it's made building this chart a particularly enriching experience. It is in need of some retrospective edits though.

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 3% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.4/100, a mean average of 90.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.4.

Thank you!

In the scheme of things, I don't think it's particularly remarkable that this is the one decade I haven't given out any 10s, because I haven't really given out many to begin with. The 70s disproportionately has a lot more 10s, so maybe there's a bias there, but most other decades have only a handful.

To add to that, perhaps with time certain albums will grow on me. I don't know if I'm the one to give an album a perfect score instantly.

The top 4 of this list - for instance - I can see moving up as time goes by.

Also, yes... it seems this chart of the day landed before I had gotten around to doing my end of year update, this has been rectified haha

Exemplary chart for the 2010s. No album this decade has left me floored quite like TPAB, a deserved number 1.

I have to say though, given the ratings for your other decade charts, am I being unreasonable to suggest that the passage of time has rendered your treatment of older records a little softer? The 2010s has by no means been a stellar decade in my view, but for there to be no 10/10 albums and only one 9.5 seems a little harsh to me; I wonder if over the years some of these top picks might creep into your overall chart ... only time will tell!

One other thing - I've noticed your 2018 chart has been changed drastically with Cadu Tenorio taking up the top spot and Car Seat Headrest (which at the moment makes it into your overall top 100) being relegated to number 4. Are you going to change this chart/your overall chart in accordance with your new changes? If so I look forward to seeing the adjustments. :)

Love this chart, not sure if it's your thing but there's some great emo-revival albums that would fit nicely in this list.
