I've gotten a couple comments on this album's placement. Admittedly, it has risen rather quickly, but I don't think that there should be a waiting period in order for an album to be included near the top of my chart. I truly believe that it is one of the best albums I've ever listened to, and I placed it where I think is appropriate given my subjective assessment of its quality, irrespective of its release date.(First added to this chart: 05/22/2016)

YES! Can. Mingus. Aphex. Nails. Great chart with some excellent choices. Wish Radiohead weren't at the top (I mean, I like Radiohead, but just want to see more charts where they're not number 1), but other than that, I love this chart. Keep up the good work!

I appreciate the minimalist picks of Reich and Glass but the top 7 all being variations of Floyd/Radiohead/Beatles? It's a lot.
ps your 91-100 is really great

@Tilly
If you're looking for mellowest NIN album, then the Still EP or Ghosts I-IV is the way to go.
The Still EP features stripped down nearly acoustic versions of earlier songs, instrumental tracks and a previously unreleased song. Not a major release, but is actually pretty great.
Ghosts I-IV is super mellow, but in a very different way. It's a completely instrumental ambient album. It's closer to his soundtrack work than any of his other albums. I like the album personally, but it doesn't really sound like a NIN album. If you like it then check out his soundtrack work.
As for his later work, With Teeth is more rock-centric and has no overarching concept, Year Zero has a more digitized sound and describes a dystopian far-right fascist future America, The Slip isn't very good, and Hesitation Mark is more focused on rhythmic electronic grooves. Up to you which direction to go.
As to TMR, I liked it more on this listen. Not going to say I "get it", but I'm starting to appreciate elements of it.

Awesome chart! NIN rules, and I really should listen to his later albums more. They're quite beautiful. What's the mellowest NIN album & I'll check it out. Great to see that Mars Volta album get some love. One of my faves too. Can't wait to see where Trout Mak winds up here. lol. Peace.
