The Smiths are the band of my youth and have stayed with me right up until now. Meat Is Murder was the 1st album of theirs I owned which during the 80's seemed more popular on cassette. Ended up buying this on vinyl and CD eventually. Really Rockabilly drives this album and its greatest influence. I owe this album so much for giving a shy kid some personality and making the whole music side things much cooler. I'm not suggesting this the greatest album of all time, it's the one album that I treasure for all the friendships I made even if those people aren't still around.

A perfect companion if your drowning yourself with bourbon. A masterpiece created by a music genius. Waits has never grovelled better in his life. His throat was very sore on this record. [First added to this chart: 05/05/2016]

Think it’s the album cover that wins me over and 1 particular track ‘The Rover’ that I just love the grunge sound. [First added to this chart: 06/17/2020]

A dark and for me a very stoner rock album. Hope Sandoval is very seductive with her voice. Cant help but think about how beautiful she us every time I hear singing. I’m not a drug user but this makes me feel quite stoned this great album. [First added to this chart: 05/05/2016]

First real political album I ever heard and it stuck with me. Young kid on the skateboard in music video for “Its The End of The World As We Know It” was a hero of mine. I forever tried doing those tricks [First added to this chart: 09/01/2020]

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 89.3/100, a mean average of 90.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 5.2.

I don't think I've ever seen The The and Mazzy Star in a top 10 before. Which is great. They deserve to be in the top 10.
