As perfect and cohesive as an album should be
I always think of dark side as a 43 minute song. but don't get me wrong with that
Its Awesome how all the songs work with such synchronicity talking about very powerful topics like Death, Madness, Time in human life, etc.
The Level of production is so high, you will think this record was recorded in 2021 (yeah its 2020)
Perfect Album that will start the first out of 3 Perfect Albums
Best Song: Time / Brain Damage / Us And Them [First added to this chart: 08/02/2019]
Best Hard Rock Album Ever
I mean come on, every song here is a 90-100 except for "four sticks"
I was at my 2 year in College when i arrive at my apartment and my roomie was listening to "Misty Mountain Hop" at madison square garden and for that moment Led Zeppelin blew my mind and change my musical experience because i wanted to know more and more and discover new genres, bands and artists
Member by member Led Zeppelin is the best band ever and this is their best work

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 6% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 87.5/100, a mean average of 90.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.6.

Great selections. A few of them are new to me, so I put them on my watchlist.
hello again dude
I listened to the Jose Jose album Lo Pasado, Pasado.
Although I read he is popular round the world I hadn't heard of him.
It is a really good album. He has a good voice. I liked the title track best, and his Billy Joel cover.
And I read Frank Sinatra was a fan and a friend of his. Talented guy.
so thank you, it's good to discover new artists.
47 albums in common
awesome list man
many, many Yes-es from me.
I think the 70s was the best decade for albums.
the 50's were dynamic and the 60s were revolutionary but the 70s was such a fertile time for music.
It's my favourite decade.
If I could just put Beatles, psychedelic Floyd, Sam Cooke and Etta James' 60s albums into the 70s decade it would be the ultimate!
great chart Dude.
Definitely your best list.
On top of that, 40 albums in common.
I guess it's not difficult for the 70s. Everyone pretty much agrees on that era of music.
35 in common with my 70's chart!
Nice chart, with a fair bit of variety. I will be checking out Jose Jose and may be back to update the rating.
Man, these super specific album ratings for the top 3 spots are cracking me up.
