Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Rhyner (2020)

16 December 2017: This thing was seriously in need of updating. I've been working on my year and decade charts for the last little while, so it was a good time to give my overall an overhaul. I'm never quite satisfied with any list I make of my favorite anythings, but I can safely say this is pretty close to accurate.

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 4% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 89.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.8.

Any chart with NMH on top is a great chart! You can see that it's filled with sentiments.

Lots of overlap between our overall charts, starting with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which made your top ten overall but just missed mine. I'm anticipating doing some shuffling in the near future, though, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Wilco joining the band that spawned them, Uncle Tupelo, in my own top ten.
