Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by CharlieBarley (2021)
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 I discover new, or even older albums. Enjoy!

I like many of his albums especially his 70's and 80's ones. And The Rising from the 2000's.
On this album, the title track is my favourite, and one of my favourite songs of his. But all the tracks on here are good. Badlands. Adam Raised A Cain. Racing In The Street. It's just brilliant.
At the moment my top 5 albums by the Boss would be: Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Nebraska, Born In The USA, Born To Run and then The Wild, The Innocent & The E-Street Shuffle. With The Rising just outside the top five. Maybe I should have done a top ten lol!
Anyway this is an awesome album, I think. It sounds good any time of day and any time of year. I love it. [First added to this chart: 05/24/2017]
Too many favourites to pick out songs. It's best played from start to finish. And I rarely skip Revolution 9, I love that one it's definitely different and it's fun. Interesting note: this is Slash from Guns n Roses' favourite Beatles album. I saw him say it on a documentary. You can see why, it totally rocks and it casts a goofy spell over you.
Terrific album. I play it quite a lot. [First added to this chart: 08/06/2016]

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings 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 Bayesian average rating of 92.7/100, a mean average of 92.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.9.

thanks for your opinion mate
variety is the spice of life they say and we can't all like the same things
I love The Beatles but, just before your comment, I took them off the number one spot as I like the Springsteen album best at the minute.
I like a lot of kraftwerk and depeche mode albums but not as much as other artists, although I nearly added Songs of Faith and Devotion cuz I like it a lot
NIN don't really do it for me most of the time
with the exception of their first album - that's great and in my 80's chart
anyway no hard feelings
i rated this low soley based on the beatles being there. i am sick and freaking tired of beatles. i respect your tastes and lots of albums i really love but in my opinion beatles is the most over-rated overhyped band in this freakin world. like there are thousands of amazing bands that aren't even listened because of this shitty conception. and 4 beatles albums but only 1 Depeche Mode and none from Kraftwerk is an insult to music. Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode are as important as beatles. and i am shocked that there is no Nine Inch Nails
How to make a personal and overwhelmingly solid chart.
I named myself after my nickname my old Nana (Grandmother) used to call me.
She called all her male grandchildren Charlie or Charlie Barley, and she would call her female grandchildren Kate.
Nice name change mate :).
thanks very much Leniad, my friend
great chart friend
i have a cool time reading the eplanations you wrote :)
Thanks for the nice feedback! Glad you liked my comments; I tried to be concise with them but... failed. Anywho, yours is a very fine list deserving of a full five stars. *bows*
