Most of all, this album has a carefree, youthful energy that never fails to bring me back up on a bad day. This is my deserted desert island album. [First added to this chart: 11/16/2017]

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings

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 all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 90.9/100, a mean average of 91.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.3/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.7.

Love your notes. Gave me good insight to a few I'll be checking out
Thanks for your comment Boltzmann! I can see why the wording of my description confused you, but I have obviously listened to every album front to back on every one of my charts. I meant that I hadn't listened to most of the albums in the top 500 or so in the overall chart, and thus don't be angry if I don't put Loveless or whatever on my chart.
I'm sorry you found my chart "bland". Feel free to hit me with any recommendations that aren't dull!
like a lot of your choices but i think half 1970s is a lot, and the 70s are my favourite decade jajaja
I’m going out to buy that Chicago album ASAP . Great list
Really cool here. I found one new album from a band from Mexico but the rest is everything i can go with. Beatles, Radiohead, Neil Young and David Bowie superb collection.
Very classical and Beatlesque chart...
I like it. You love good songs and melodies: Same as me.
"Here is a list of my favorite albums, I haven't listened to them all"... that's not how that works, I'd say drop one of these sentences. Impressive how your chart is still extremely predictable and bland.
Sunflower by The Beach Boys is great though, and indeed underappreciated. This mf was making shoegazing in the '70s.
Almost perfect list. I agree with almost every pick!
Pretty good. Not a fan of Fleet Foxes myself, as they remind me of stroking stoats in the West Country. Good to see Forever Changes by Love ranked so high.
It's really cool to see such a classic rock oriented chart, focusing especially on the 1960s and 1970s, also valuing albums such Fleet Foxes' self-titled debut. Great job on this chart!

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
