Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by saacsquatch (2018)  

« View previous chartView next chart »

I've excluded all albums that have overall ranks that are higher than the ones that I would give them. For example: Doolittle's overall rank is 19. I would not rank it that high, so it's not included in my list. Doolittle and all the other albums that I've excluded don't need my help since they're already rated highly. I'd rather make room for albums that do need my help. My "true" greatest albums list can be found in my custom lists.

I've also limited this chart to 1 album per artist 'cuz that's the in thing.

He thought that some of these faces might be right for him and, through the years, by keeping an ideal facial structure fixed in his mind (or somewhere in the back of his mind), that he might, by force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal.

This is one of the charts that convinced me to listen to all seven hours of The Disintegration Loops in one sitting. As effortless as an epic avant-garde excursion could be.

Also, I love the albums on this chart.

Love the idea of not ranking albums that you view as too high on the overall chart. Adds some variety to the list and allows to spread the love to more artists. Might have to try that

definitely interesting. not sure how I feel about your ranking system, but it makes for a good enough chart, and I see your reason behind it. Also, its cool to see 22 a million on there. If you like it too you should definitely check out Age of Adz

There's a lot of stuff on this I haven't gotten round to listening to yet. But the stuff I have heard is stuff I'm really into. I'm going to come back to this chart and catch up on this stuff.
