Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by BLO (2020)
Here's my personal list of favorite albums. Keep in mind, I haven't listened to everything. I made sure to add albums that I feel are greatly unappreciated and unknown. I understand I don't have much past the 70's, so let me know if there's anything newer you think I'd like!

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 90.4/100, a mean average of 91.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.6.

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!
Great chart, just gave Força Bruta a listen & loved it!!
Try listening to L'Via L'Viaquez by The Mars Volta - I think you might like!!
The closest anyone has come to one of my charts. 21 albums in common
Great 70’s chart. Nice new albums sprinkled through.
28 albums in common - great chart! always nice to see Beach Boys love :)
We seem to have quite similar taste in music. You should listen to more hip hop.
I like this chart a lot and have or recognise many of the albums and artists. I too love the 70s but less so the 60's - although I like many of the 60s artists and albums you have here.
It's always interesting in your chart when a more recent album appears - like Stone Roses, Arcade Fire, Strokes, Fleet Foxes and Neutral Milk Hotel - love that stuff.
I like your comments and found similar views on many albums like Black Angel's Death Song on Velvets and Nico!
I've been listening to more recent stuff myself (post 90's which I guess is still nearly 30 years ago!!!) and found lots of excellent although different from the 60s and 70s.
I've also added your Croce album since I've never even heard of him but hope our musical taste persist with that suggestion.
Very good list. Love the love for S and G.
Brilliant chart - I'll check out the Jim Croce album!
