"Sunday, the 3rd of February 2013, 6:00 a.m. is forever going to be burned indelibly on my memory not least because it was my first listen to m b v, but because it's release was a genuine event and more importantly because it was fucking brilliant.
Here, like their previous releases, was music that had very little to do with the real world, it was (whisper it) incorporeal. Wasn't 'who see's you' the soundtrack to your soul bursting through the clouds to arrive at heaven's gate, or 'in another way' perfect for that scene where everything gets heavily psychedelic in '2001', or 'wonder 2' My Bloody Valentine at their most bonkers and their most bafflingly disorientating.
m b v was the soundtrack to February 2013, scratch that, 2013 and it was fucking great." February 2013

"I don't know, is everyone listening to the same album as me? Cos everyone's complaining how difficult a listen it is, lacking any discernable singles etc etc, when it just sounds like a perfectly smooth listen with subtle but obvious earworm pop songs all the same.
In fact, I'll go to say Blond has so many of the qualities missing from white music these days: balls; new ideas; sonic innovation; and the ability to take the listener to new places. Just as much as this is a modern, 21st Century R'n'B album it's also a spiritual heir to works such as Closer or Loveless - it's that good. Simply put, Frank Ocean makes everyone else look like a bunch of clueless, ungainly fools. Wow." August 2016

“Anger, frustration, love, dislocation, suicide, death. These are just a few of the subjects dealt with by this relatively new band on their debut album.
The Murder Capital are Irish - this is important. James McGovern sings with an Irish accent and his thick brogue smears a softness and poeticism/romanticism that has been sorely missing lately.
And then there’s the music, more post-punk than punk, it’s an urgent and intense mix that veers from sky-scraping ferocity to emotionally naked intimacy.
Like Interpol and Bloc Party, they are one of those bands, they love Joy Division but this is no hastily cobbled-together facsimile. Joy Division are an obvious influence, a springboard from which to map their dreams and nightmares.
Get ready, The Murder Capital are slaying.“ August 2019

"It's true, it's Merritt's best since '69 Love Songs' with some monster, killer songs on offer that easily rank as his best - even if it includes some of his oddest arrangements to date. There is one big difference though, where '69 Love Songs' favoured a more spartan instrumentation 'Memoir' is a hell of a lot more colourful, even at times psychedelic, befitting his familial background. Even so, he still finds room for the kind of piano-led compositions last seen on '69' or 'i'. Whatever, he's on top form here and this is gonna be glued to my stereo for a long, long time."

"After all these years, Slowdive still sound like a miracle occurring. They've lost nothing and have instead turned out an album that like before, shows no sign of them compromising their vision. The material, is perhaps more deep-set and knottier than before, especially so on the second half where it sounds like something approaching a frown is crossing Neil Halsteads' mighty countenance.
There are even some echoes of the past, with Go Get It featuring the burnt out coda of Souvlaki Space Station and Falling Ashes' simple piano motif being oddly reminiscent of Sigur Ros, one of their many admirers. The experimentation of Pygmalion also features in most of the material, particularly the use of repetition not unlike the use of loops on that album.
What more is there to say? As a comeback album it's a resounding success and easily their best since Souvlaki.

"Albums this special only come along once in a while, how it's managed to remain relatively ignored since it's release is criminal. What does it sound like? Imagine the Mama's & the Papa's or the Loving Spoonfull jamming with Slowdive and your nearly there, and yes it does sound better than that. A forgotten classic, Fading Parade's seamless dream-pop updates classic West Coast psychedelia for the 2010's." February 2011 [First added to this chart: 01/03/2012]

"Vicious and unrelenting, this album's portrayal of domination, S & M, torture, and serial murder couldn't be more overwhelming if it's auteur's blood-smeared face were to rise up out of the hell it leaves in it's wake. As an artistic statement it's brave, whether it's healthy is debatable. " February 2014 [First added to this chart: 02/06/2014]

“Throughout this decade I’ve been moaning about how bad a state rock’n’roll is in. How it seems to be in irreversible decline, how it appears to be dying. No more, IDLES not only resurrect punk rock but breathe new life in to rock’n’roll. Anger of the phlegmatic kind is the tone, Snowflake Oi is the charge - less a flurry and more an avalanche.
If you hate how the 2010’s have turned out, you need this record, IDLES are an oasis of common-sense in a world slowly but surely going to pot.” August 2019

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 14% of charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.4.

OK, so why have I included so many Perfume Genius lps? Well, I think this guy is great and he’s been consistently excellent with each release. Definitely one of the best artists of the 10’s. Give him a chance you might be pleasantly surprised.

I wasn't personally a big fan of your overall chart, and though maybe I don't agree with many of the picks (four PG albums and a total absence of hip hop are my main gripes) the inclusion of the mini reviews are a joy to read. Great stuff!!
