Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by NJ (2021)
Very much subject to drastically change at any time. I still have so, so much music to listen to. It's overwhelming. Right now I'm in the process of adding descriptions for each entry, so bear with me while I complete that, since I'm rather slow when it comes to writing. I don't like much of the last half of this chart nearly as much as I should, but that's been getting a lot better the more great albums I add. When I first made this chart I struggled to find 10 I was happy putting as the top 10, and now I can easily do a top 50 and feel satisfied, so it's a process.

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings an item has currently received.
m = minimum number of ratings required for an item to appear in a 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).
AV = the site mean average rating.

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 89.4/100, a mean average of 91.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.5/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 6.0.

Good chart, good to see TMR ranked at number 4. I never gave Carseat Headrest a fair listen. That was an interesting best album pick
good chart, may comeback when you enter another 50 albums
Great chart. Although we only share 4 or so albums there’s a lot of albums I love here and will feature as I expand my own chart. Write ups are great also
A lot of great choices!
More-de-scrip-tions! More-de-scrip-tions! ....
Great chart and I'm sure it will be even better when it will be longer.
These are all great albums! I'd definitely recommend branching out into the current decade a little bit, there's a lot to discover! My first thought was "22, A Million" by Bon Iver (another electronic-departure-from-a-big-band album, like in your intro post), but I'd also suggest "Ten Love Songs" by Susanne Sundfør and "Right from Real" by Lydia Ainsworth.
Nice chart. I would have picked a different order, but great 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 :(
