Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet

A record with so much unique power and personality. Mangum's voice here is tremendously hopeful and painful. This is an album that could have a million interpretations and it seems that with each listen, depending on what I'm going through, the music caters to the opposite feeling and always reels me back into the earth. Perfect.

Used to be one of the rotten ones and I liked you for that
Now you're all gone, got your makeup on and you're not coming back

The ultimate example of sound = emotion. From the crashing waves of KC Accidental to the subtle murmurings of Anthems of a Teenage Girl to the helpless beckoning of Lover's Spit, this album is as much a cacophony of happiness, sadness, and angst as ITAOTS. It will bring you up over the clouds.

You sat along the fire...
You're so in love, you're so...
You've suffered long
You're so alone, you're so...
You sigh 'so long'
You sigh 'so long'

It's for a golden-hour summer in the woods, a dark wintery night on a mountain, the first fall of leaves in the autumn and when the snow melts in the spring. It's for every moment, big or small, happy or sad, lonely or comforted. A masterpiece.

I think that, up until I heard this record, most music I had listened to was fairly "normal" and what I mean by this is that the instruments, melodies, vocals, chords, beats, etc. were all done in familiar, identifiable ways (doesn't mean they were bad or not skillful at all, of course). Then, in early high school, I heard this album and was absolutely rocked. The sounds coming at me were all unfamiliar, aggressive, anxiety-inducing and sometimes scary, and I was shifted into a world that contained all of these elements. I was shifted to a place where I had a fresh mind. A place that I had never experienced before, like a baby, and everything was open to interpretation with no prior bias or familiarity of any sort. That is the power of Kid A. It reinvents the concept of music for you upon your first listen, and submerges you into its world immediately upon further listens. That experience is something that I haven't found with any other album to date.

And heard the furious sound
The roar of waves,
The pounding surf.
Two bodies on the earth:
It was intense just getting to be there next to you.

One of the most intimate albums I've ever heard, with Phil Elvrum's lyrics pointing the listener to both the gritty, and the beautiful on a journey as experimental and mind-blowing as anything I've listened to before or since. A true masterpiece.

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 2% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 90.5/100, a mean average of 93.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.8/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 4.7.

Nice stuff on here.
I still need to get into Kendrick Lamar and Deerhunter. I see them on almost every list I check out.

Thanks for this list. Peace and Love

Really appreciate this chart and I think it is excellent! Weird that you have Antlers Burst Apart on here because while I was looking at this a song of theirs from the album was stuck in my head. Also a Perfume Genius song haha. Checked this out because of your comment on the new Perfume Genius and you already have it on your top hundred, that's really cool, it is very good.
