to picture undreamed cress beneath
tulip bulbs the shade of a first kiss blush
meeting snowline for the first year,
and branches of a robin’s labour seep
into the endless eaves of white [First added to this chart: 03/04/2012]
knobs on the VU
pizzicato [First added to this chart: 12/18/2011]
A muffle awaiting space
A true ugliness revolting,
to disturb —
And recall stories from a cousin,
Whose eyelids can't stop replaying
as she watched her bright body fall from
a bullet to the back of the head
as they snuck out the backdoor
and ran, and ran, and ran, and ran—
And that’s all she could muster to tell of the story
(to her mother) [First added to this chart: 06/14/2017]
to a pool of memories wrapped in fingers
which used to intertwine within your own,
and ran through your hair and reminded
you for a simple moment that this world
is a loving place, albeit however brief—
and you know in that moment,
as the first notes hit your ears,
as your feet leave the ground,
goosebumps rising like when they touched
your skin for the first time and the very last,
how much love and sorrow has been carved
into those crevasses between your fingers
and how much more you want to listen
and how achingly you wish for it to end [First added to this chart: 01/27/2017]
The drunken tuba player alongside you slumbering,
Post-raid of your two-month liquor stock,
Crashing somewhere bittersweet,
Alongside the martyrs,
Who neither do or don’t
Have anyplace to be. [First added to this chart: 07/29/2011]
Within fogged progress,
By means of balance,
yet barely intact,
somewhere in space,
somewhere in sound,
fading— [First added to this chart: 09/12/2015]
the 3rd and 12th fret
on the lower e-string
of my beginner acoustic
which makes it difficult
to learn the blues—
yet during spring
once I knew the songs
I couldn’t help but
notice it was gone [First added to this chart: 09/12/2015]
Of the dozing valley,
With the narrowest rivulets,
Fat toadstools and birdnests,
Curled tendrils wrapping blossoms,
Of hydrangeas and tulips in bloom,
Frog croaks, cicada hums,
And glowworms in blue hour—
Chestnuts, walnuts, and ginger,
Endless berries fallen ripe—
Please. [First added to this chart: 02/14/2014]
Red clouds overhead,
Red water underneath,
Rain hitting leaves,
Leaves growing strong,
An early spring,
Dying upon winter— [First added to this chart: 07/29/2011]
up up up up up
up up up up up
up up up up up
up up up up up
up up up up up
Until a halt—
Why did they stop?
Is this it? [First added to this chart: 08/25/2019]

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 3% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.5/100, a mean average of 89.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 10.6.

Glad to see Dirty Three get some love. Its a sin to not have the studio recording of Vespertine in favor of the live version though :O
wow. So many awesome picks. Love the taste between the jazz, noise rock and folk deep cuts. That GSH and Brian Jackson record is just the best
I like some of your favorites; others I'm not familiar w/ yet. Good reason for me to keep expanding my music paradigms. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
insightful take re: live fado, and it's funny you should make the point also because one of the best shows I've ever been to was Mariza in San Francisco (in like 2015 I wanna say? idk covid has ruined my ability to make sense of time). but yeah while I plenty enjoy Mariza's albums none of them have ever hit the height of that concert for me. I think you're onto something, the genre it really does make so much more sense live. man to have seen Amalia back then...
i feel being adverse to detailed reviews (I've been urged to add to my chart some version of the more cohesive writeups that I had once upon a time but as time goes on I feel less and less sure of how to even go about that) but for what it's worth I think the poetry approach is kind of inspired, first go or not I feel like I get a sense of what to expect from the stuff I haven't heard or get an idea of how your experience with an album might be different from mine. also it's just fun to read.
really hope you enjoy the Lancelot Layne comp (and/or anything else you feel like checking out). and yea I feel like it's only a matter of time before The Cake blow up in music nerd land haha. I go back and forth between their self-titled and this one but both are essentially perfect in my mind. on my old chart I just cheated and had that compilation that contains both albums hahaha
oh and forgot to mention it's cool not only seeing Amalia on here but specifically Amalia À L'Olympia, always felt that it was far and away the best thing she's ever done but I don't usually see it praised nearly as much as her (also excellent) studio stuff
is the poetry yours Hayden? Because that's an approach to personalizing one's chart I've yet to see and I fucking love it. best part of an already really cool selection of albums, feel like you captured the vibes pretty much perfectly
At some point, I want to go through this list. Also want to point out, wasn't the descriptor for #100 for Fka Twigs LP1? Don't how it fits for Metaphorical Music.
Fantastic, diverse chart!
Any greatest albums chart that's less than 50% USA grabs my attention, and is automatically bookmarked for further research. Kudos.
i agree, these are quite good... not too often i see people who like exuma, faust, dadawah and tenhi... we not only share tastes but in some pretty random places
