Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by adbrack1988 (2020)

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, your opinion, man."
-The dude

I'm an average 30-something year old male with average 30-something year old male taste, which is to say I like all types of rock. I casually listen to hip hop, funk and reggae..etc, and from time to time I'll put on an old jazz record (maybe Kind of Blue, In a Silent Way or Blue Train will make their way here someday, but I'm not quite there yet).

Live albums and compilations can feel like cheating a bit so I've excluded them here (sorry Allman Bros, Grateful Dead, Thin Lizzy, Little Feat...). Anyway, on with the list...

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 18% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.0.

Very fun chart. If you haven't before, I recommend maybe checking out some more underground 70's rock music like Yes, King Crimson, etc. based on your tastes... or maybe even more obscure stuff like Steamhammer or Curved Air (some of my favorites). Just thought I 'd give some recs, in case you may have overlooked some less prominent artists. I do enjoy your picks quite a lot though, especially Led Zeppelin and Thin Lizzy :)

I like how you're upfront about your biases in a way that's refreshingly honest for this site. Love the picks so far, would be great to see some notes to why you picked these albums!

Nice stuff! I've gotta say, I think Led Zep I is their best honestly, but I share your sentiment that it's all opinion at that point. They're both pretty rockin'
