Top 50 Greatest Music Albums by experiencemusic
If you've made an albums chart for yourself, then you know how difficult it is to judge different bodies of musical work against one another. I will continue tweaking my chart to reflect ever changing musical tastes. The top ten albums are interchangeable since choosing a favorite album seems arbitrary or impossible. I hope you can discover and enjoy new music from looking at my albums chart.
NOTE: I've decided to exclude compilation, extended play, and live albums from the chart. I'm also using the one album per artist rule to give the chart a bit more diversity. I've also decided to exclude albums that have been around for less than ten years (i.e. 2012-present).

Top 50 Greatest Music Albums ratings
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings an item has currently received.

AV = the site mean average rating.

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 86.5/100, a mean average of 86.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.1.

Really nice chart. Would love to see 51 - 100
One of the best charts on this site.
Wow, nice chart! Good stuff
Very interesting chart as a whole, many genres and classics along with great underground choices. Descriptions are so nice too
11 albums in common, 7 of which are in your top 12.
Great chart! I especially love your top 10! Personally, I'm not a huge Beach Boys fan, but I can appreciate it! ^^
Also love that you included Metric too!
Good chart. Maybe a little bit obvious choices, but still it won't be a punishment at all if they drop me on a desert island with only these records!
Great notes on your top 10

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
