Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by BoxFL (2021) Unknown

Songs are rated separately, semi-randomly, and placed into numerical tiers (from 0.5 to 5.0, at 0.25 intervals). Song ratings determine an album rating, which includes length of tracks as a variable.

The rating system is curved based on a golden ratio distribution, and forced-fit to eliminate any skew.

Important to note that songs are scored based solely on the pure sonic utility- that is, 100% subjective. I also tend to ignore lyrics, unless they are noticeably good or noticeably bad.

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 7% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 87.4/100, a mean average of 88.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.7.

Nice chart. Not much post-90s but everything here from 60s-90s is great. Interestingly not much for me to discover here, only a handful of albums I haven't listened to and they're all by familiar artists. That said, what's here is quality. Nice work!

I love Blue Album.... your chart just seems like you like mostly generic music which I find kind of dull.. to each their own but for now its a 75. Maybe I'll lighten up later lol.
