The album represents a conflict between Anne's love of life and the peace of death his friend longed for. The question is "Is our existence worth it?" and the answer is "It's difficult but yes." The story deeply analyzes the beauty of sex and nature, human connection, loss from death, spirituality, ways of finding meaning, and the deepest evil found in men on its way to creating the most compelling description of the human experience you will find in musical art. The two-headed boy becomes one of the most intricate and beautiful characters in art. This is a HEAVY album with a lot to process beyond its meme status.
This is the best explanation I have found. If you really want to understand this album then I really recommend the read.
Favorite Songs: Two Headed Boy Pt 2, Oh Comely, Holland 1945, ITAOTS, The King of Carrot Flowers Pt 1 [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
The album follows a young man who sees the problems going on with industry, for the black community, and especially within himself. He goes on a journey from u to i and decided he will pimp himself to be a guiding light for the future of black men. The record is as inspiring as it is sonically advanced.
Kendrick created the most emotionally and socially compelling concept album of the past decade and in rap history. I thought Illmatic would forever be the best rap album but this takes the cake.
Favorite Tracks: U, Wesley's Theory, These Walls [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Favorite Tracks: Reckoner, Jigsaw Falling into Place, 15 Step, Nude [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Favorite Tracks: Paranoid Android, Let Down, The Tourist [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Lyrically, this album is a warning. The first three tracks represent the tendency of people to waste their lives "You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today And then one day you find ten years have got behind you No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun." Universally chilling and an extremely compelling idea. The Great Gig represents death in one of the most beautiful singing preformances found on a rock record.
The second half of the album gives us examples of harmful pieces of human life. Money, the root of all evil. Us and Them, the constant black and white outlook on the world where you're with or against a cause, idea, or person. Brain Damage, insanity. All of this leads to the sun, a symbol of hope, becoming eclipsed, leaving us only with the dark side of the cold, dead moon.
Favorite Tracks: Time (the best song ever written), Us and Them, Brain Damage, Eclipse [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Finally it clicked. This album is like no other in my opinion. There is a clear story in this album despite what Yorke might say. Try to really delve into the lyrics. The song "Kid A" is the biggest give-away. "We've got heads on sticks and you've got ventriloquists," is essentially the story. The album creates a cold ambiance to enforce lyrics that depict an Orwellian future where individuality and freedom are suppressed. You realize that we are in the future that OK Computer warned about. The album reflects an elite class pulling the strings of history and providing "fodder for the animals, living on animal farm." (direct Orwell reference)
The emotions of the album can be cut with a knife. The experimentation and boldness of the album is unsurpassed. The lyrics, if you ignore Yorke's misinformation, create a hauntingly disturbing but unfortunately true picture of our world.
Radiohead would be the best artist of the 2000's if they only released this album. This album is the 2000's and beyond.
Favorite Tracks: Everything in it's Right Place, Kid A, How to Disappear Completely, Optimistic, Idioteque [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Favorite Tracks: NY State of Mind, It Ain't Hard to Tell [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]

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 2% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 92.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.4.

I love this chart, 46 albums in common. Maybe update the Radiohead captions to match the ranking :)
OMG Yes yes yes
I'd already left a rating but since it's chart of the day I thought I'd leave a comment too.
Such an amazing chart, I forgot how personal your notes were too so I've upped the rating to 95/100. Great inclusions of classic rock alongside hip hop that's great to see.
It's very diverse which I really like. Good choice with the best Metallica album. Ride The Lightning is my fave too :)
nice classic chart !! very balanced choices ...
Great chart and interesting to read all the text.
Nice picks! Your NMH comments need some updating though :)
Great chart. Need to leave room for increasing my rating once you’ve made comments for each album.
Love love love this list
