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 3% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.2/100, a mean average of 91.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 5.9.

Good list with a lot of conventional picks but also some that surprised me.

I like your chart and have many albums and artists in common, although I accept comments that it is mainly well noted albums - but they are great albums so they merit being here. Hope you finish your comments.

Pretty cool list you make it your own while including your own tastes while putting your opinion on the classics, one thing to comment are your 2000's and later picks are all good and fun but nothing too surprising.

Dylan is too low, lack of Jazz music, and terrible hiphop picks. Other than that it's a decent list.

Fairly conventional list, but there's nothing wrong with that, I am not a fan of being different just for the sake of being different!

Very much agee with Spyglass. It's a good start, but it's pretty much just the canon. Not very different from this site's or RYM's top 40. They're good albums for sure, but I'll rate this chart higher when it seems like you've made it your own.
