Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Stover75 (2020)
Welcome one, welcome all. These are some of my favourite albums of all time. Each album means something to me, even the relatively new ones. Just over half of them come from the period in the early 1990s when I was aged 15-20, although not all of those albums are 90s albums. The early 90s was when I got into music in a big way, as many teenagers do. It is a form of connection with something greater, of solace, of self-expression and a way of channelling feelings. There are many memories here. And new ones are still being created. I have tried to make this chart represent periods from many different stages in my life also. It is subject to change as I remember other albums I like or as new albums come out. Enjoy!

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.

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 1% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 94.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 93.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 5.5.

Never was able to catch Get Stoned. Lucky you ! And great list anyway
Wow, you've been busy, I like this chart better than I remember, so went from a 95 to 100 (I mean clearly it already was fantastic, but even better it seems now). Great chart/chats :).
Thanks for the kind comment man.
I wish I had your knowledge :)
Great picks! Yay for abba
Thanks for the comment Julian. I know Sunny by Bobby Hebb and I like it. Keeping up the unabashed pop love I also like the version by Boney M! Ain't That Good News by Sam Cooke was new to me. I love him and thought I knew a lot of his songs. Yeh Etta James rules.
Gotta love a chart that runs from complex, artful (reaching avant-garde in certain cases with Aphex Twin, Slint, and others) releases to unabashedly pop records. I don't think I've ever seen Spiderland and Ed Sheeran in the same chart but I like it. And you've got good, personal notes for each and every one. One that caught my I was that Etta James record. If you like her there is a whole swath of oldies pop/soul that is soooo dang amazing and under appreciated! I would highly recommend Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" and especially Sam Cooke's "Ain't That Good News"
Hey, it's been a while. Glad to see your chart up here. :)
My tastes have grown a bit since we last talked. I can definitely appreciate this chart a lot more than I did last (And I loved it before!) Keep up the great work. :)
