I still have a lot to listen to.

I don't update this chart too often anymore, so it's probably outdated.

Has some of the best use of samples, allowing for me to wonder what is actually going on in the sample, while also painting a picture in my mind of what could possibly be happening.

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 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.3/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.4.

Great chart. We've got a lot in common, from favourite albums to descriptive moments. Like the inclusion of lots of hip-hop, and the variety contained within. Have you tried getting into Can? They possess an avant quality that would seem to match with a lot of what you've posted.

Can't argue with the picks, so many great albums it's obvious why this chart is so highly rated! You said in your description you're always up for suggestions so here's some pre-90s picks that maybe your chart is lacking...

Dinosaur Jr - You're Living All Over Me
Galaxie 500 - On Fire
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Talk Talk - Spirit Of Eden
Steve Reich - Music For 18 Musicians

I'd recommend Yo La Tengo, Ride, and Cocteau Twins since you like my bloody valentine.

Really nice chart, lots in common. Love all the Radiohead submissions! Obviously the chart size is limiting but if I had to recommend some artists that weren't listed based on our common interests Id say: Kid Cudi (based on your interest in Kanye), The Doors, Who, Black Sabbath, Metallica, ELO, Supertramp, Stones, Yes, RHCP, Arctic Monkeys, & Alice in Chains. You've probably heard of most these bands so there's not much surprise here, but Id have at least one album from each of these bands in my top 100.
