Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by rliberty (2019)

This list is more focused on my personal enjoyment rather than what I necessarily think is the "greatest" or most influential. Bear with me if it seems front loaded with Pink Floyd and Radiohead, I just really love those albums that much. Always open to constructive criticism/music suggestions. For some that barely missed the cut check out my decade charts.

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 charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.1.

What an outstanding chart! Have not been able to get into Modest Mouse, but for sure I'll have to give them another go.

That top 20 is soooo good. It's a bit too much Radiohead, but with 4 Cures, 3 King Crimsons and 4 REMs it's impossible not to give you 95
