The number one album in heaven. Perfect in every sense. This is the over the top kind of magic Queen tried (but mostly failed) to make. They even get away with a cover of Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music. [First added to this chart: 04/29/2011]

Intelligent punk idiocy from a parallel universe. Every album from this group is better than the three first albums by Ramones (except vol 5 which is just a tiny bit better than Road to Ruin) [First added to this chart: 04/29/2011]

Angels Egg is up there too. Daevid Allen's Gong is an experience every human being should try at least once. So fill your teapot up with tea, and come and take a ride with me! [First added to this chart: 04/29/2011]

This is so good. "Here Come the Warm Jets", "Another Green World" and "Before and After Science" should also be mentioned as some of the best albums ever recorded. Several of his more ambient records are also quite allright. [First added to this chart: 07/08/2011]

Convulsed into oblivion,from laughter or from fright. A good place to start to know the residents. (Commercial Album could also be a good start, their more resent records like Coochie Brake are also well worth checking out) [First added to this chart: 04/29/2011]

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 90.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 90.3/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.7.

This is about the most original chart and at the same time a chart which made my wishlist grow the most in a Long time.
The only thing I couldn't understand is why you put Intolerance over any of the Hüsker Dü records.

Good to see some punk appreciation. A lot of which I really like but a lot for me to discover too. Adding to my faves to get some recs from.

Sometimes feels like trying to be cool just for the sake of it, but its still a very unique list. Alot of personality.
