Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Lacobra (2020)
Honestly, I don't like making "all time" albums charts. I don't like the idea of putting records that belong to very different universes, like The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady and Modern Vampires of the City on side with each other. The concept of popular music today is not the same as it was 50 years ago. Things change, you see?
Regretably BEA doesn't allow me to post decade or year lists until I get to level 5, and I don't know how long that will take, so...
Note: Naturally, I'm not including classical releases.

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.
m = minimum number of ratings required for an item to appear in a 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).

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 charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 89.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 90.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 10.2.

Solid top 50!!
This is an absolute gem of a chart. 22 albums/27 artists in common so plenty we agree with, a few albums I love but didn't quite make the charts, albums I've never heard of and will have to check out, and a few surprising picks as well. Variety of genre and nationality as well, and I also like how after the top 10 your picks aren't necessarily the artist's consensus "best."
Some great off the mainstream road picks
good picks! it would be cool to have some analysis for why you grade each album as such. especially with unconventional picks like magical mystery tour in the top 10
It's very weird to find someone that likes Wilco so much to put it in his top 10. Very good chart (except for the Beatles, IMO).
I love your chart!
I also think that listing Jazz or Classical music with popular music is unfair.
