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 1% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 92.0/100, a mean average of 92.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 10.3.

I like the chart a lot.
I guess you intentionally didn`t always choose the best album of a certain artist, but the most underratet album that needs the most support...
For example "Trespass", "Deep Purple", "Starless and Bible Black"
I like Trespass for introducing all the typical progressive rock ingredients and still beeing pure and a bit naive like their 1st album was. It´s sure underrated.

Nice chart with a different perspective. A lot of albums you don't often see in a top 100. Like it

Refreshingly different chart! Love charts with a good amount of prog. Joan Armatrading was the biggest surprise on here cuz I randomly bought it cheap on vinyl one time and ended up really liking it.

Very diversified tastes while obviously trending towards prog. I like that a lot of your favorites are not the artist's most commercially successful. I never liked any part of Trespass and the recording is the worse, but it still feels like the genesis of genesis (of one of my favorite bands)

Like some others I can't score your chart because I don't know most of the albums. Those that I do recognise I like well so that suggests the rest is gonna be good too. Quite a bit rockier than mine which you might be right - is a bit hip.
When I get through all the more known albums first I will defo come back to work through some of your picks. Help me out with more descriptions please.
Great individual chart for sure.

The personality here is striking, and any chart with that detailed and personal desctiptions is a 10/10 for me. Haven't read them all but i'm def going to. Sad to see I Am a Bird Now in the leavers section, hope it finds its way back into your top 100 again!

thanks for the comment! def agree with your description of my taste, definitely a bit of a melody-freak. altho I've been trying to delve into other stuff a bit lately - hasn't quite made itself into my overall chart yet tho.

your descriptions here are really impressive!!

Great list and agree with everyone else that the descriptions are awesome and definitely give insight into why you love these albums.
We have a lot of shared favourite artists - Zappa, Groundhogs, Van Der Graaf, Genesis, Waits and Jack White’s various bands!
There’s also a few on here I’ve never heard so now got them on my list to listen to!
