Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by ERadio (2019)

A lot of "standard" choices on here, but the back half in particular is full of more personal picks. Not too weird, just a bit more post-punk and indie. I had to reflect my appreciation for rockabilly and alt-country as well. Limited to one album per artist because that tends to make it more interesting. I intend to notate more as I find the time. Cheers

Reading the JB biography "The One" you get a good sense for how important this album was for Brown's image, and the work he personally put in to making it what he wanted. He had so much pride in being a performer, an entertainer, and he felt it wasn't captured by his singles. So this was his chance to tell a complete story - to fully manipulate the listener's emotions as best he could without actually having them in the audience. It's his show and we are still blessed by it. [First added to this chart: 05/11/2016]

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings

Average Rating: 
86/100 (from 15 votes)
  Ratings distributionRatings distribution Average Rating = (n ÷ (n + m)) × av + (m ÷ (n + m)) × AV
where:
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings an item has currently received.
m = minimum number of ratings required for an item to appear in a 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).
AV = the site mean average rating.

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 7% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 88.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.3/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 6.2.

Really nice mix of stuff, your list has some really interesting picks (Harmony in Ultraviolet, Music For 18 Musicians etc.) that you wouldn't expect from someone with Abbey Road as their #1 pick. Great stuff!

Again, awesome. Only a few of these match my Top 100, but plenty are in my year charts. I think we're the only ones with a Candi Station. Although mine is Young Hearts Run Free in my 70s chart.

What a great overall chart! I love OK Computer and Nevermind in your top ten, and I've been thinking Are You Experienced probably deserves a bump in my rankings. (It's in my 1970s decade chart but not my overall chart...yet.) Love your comments, too.
