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 9% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 88.1/100, a mean average of 87.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 12.8.

Solid album chart. These are some classics I would select to my list but my chart is different. You like NIN but you also like Radiohead. And good for me you have the Beatles here. So I give you a good Rating.

As everyone has already told you: solid selection of albums. About the classic obvious choices: I agree with them. And lets say thanks for Plastikman, never have heard of him before. It was a great surprise.

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
