Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by BoxFL (2019)

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.
