It's their "White album" and it's a beast of a collection of songs. Best album of the 90s easily. Pumpkins at their peak of creation. [First added to this chart: 08/05/2018]

Truly perfect album that I can listen to pretty much anytime and still not get tired of it. Begins and ends with essentially the same wonderful short and to the point song which makes for a great intro and outro to the album. Then in the middle, three of some of the most epic and brilliant tracks Pink Floyd has ever done or anyone for that matter.

The first time I came across this album I was all like, why is there only five songs? My love for progressive rock was born.

Favorite song: Dogs. Probably my all time favorite song.

Merriweather and Strawberry Jams are great and get all the love but for me Feels is their best. Every song is great in its own bizarre beautiful sorta way. It has the best flow of any of their albums and it gives me the 'feels' on the reg more often than most albums out their. [First added to this chart: 08/05/2018]

Psyched out electro pop rock bliss. Futuristic bar music on a space ship. Trippy brain drugs party heaven.
Lava lamp shattering on the floor in slow motion while it's raining. These are not lyrics it's just my strange way of describing this album.

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 4% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.1/100, a mean average of 89.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.1.

Love your chart. So much variety within genres and years in which released. 5 albums in common, 19 artists. You have many more artists featured which is good to see that never made my top 100 but are on my decade or year lists. Overall, great list.

A very good list even with artists of no appeal to me like Queen, the Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Alice in Chains.

Although a child of the 1990s, I completely agree with ‘H to He Who Am the Only One’ and ‘Turn of the Cards’ – actually the only two albums here common to my own chart. Nonetheless, there are a lot of other exceptional artists like Portishead, Stevie Wonder, Björk, St. Vincent and Roxy Music, to make this all the more impressive. The Lilith Fair artists of the 1990s, and also Tori Amos, sound more like Renaissance than Joni Mitchell.

Some recommendations I might make:

— Annette Peacock’s ‘I’m the One’ – she was cited by the old ‘Rough Guide’ as a precursor to Laurie Anderson, and is in my opinion a much better artist
— Essra Mohawk’s ‘Primordial Lovers’ – gorgeously sensual vocals that should appeal if you like Renaissance and Roxy
— Lamb’s ‘Lamb’ – an intensely beautiful and dense work, the best trip-hop albums outside of Portishead I have heard

Very interesting chart. Lots of stuff you dont' see everyday. Really cool to see Feels ranked so high. I also think that's Animal Collective's best

Thanks for the comment. Your chart is pretty diverse, as well. Lots of my favorites on here I don't see very much, such as VDGG and Jeff Beck. I have also been listening to UFO a bit recently for the first time, and have really been enjoying it.

I hadn't been listening to the Beatles for a while myself, but my 3-year old son loves them so I have been hearing a lot of them lately. A LOT. He had a phase where he demanded we play "Hello Goodbye" approximately 30 times a day - hey, at least it's not "Baby Shark". ;)

Btw, have you been following the 25-year anniversary celebrations for Mellon Collie? Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin did a Zoom interview about it a few days ago, which I found quite interesting. It should be on Youtube.

Really solid chart! I appreciate your comments on my profile man. I don't really get on here too much and this is my first time on since i updated my top 100 a year ago, but I thought I'd drop a comment just to let you know I appreciate you and your chart. We even have a pretty similar taste in prog rock as well. I used to listen to Camel and Genesis back in high school. (Only a few years ago lol I realize how old that makes me sound.) Big ups on mellon collie being #1. I'm about to update my chart and move it higher as well. I realized recently that through and through it's one of the best albums I've ever heard and tracks that I used to not be so fond of, such as We Only Come Out At Night and Stumbleine growing on me quite a bit. Gonna be updating my chart tonight, and I'll prob pick back up tomorrow if you wanna check out my new rankings and new additions. I'll be sure to check out some albums from your chart as well and keep you updated.

Really enjoy the diversity of the list! We only have one album in common (Midnight Vultures), but there are a few albums that just missed my list (they'll make it when I am able to expand). I have to dig into Cheap Trick, The Cars, and Supertramp more!
