Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Spyglass (2020)
My chart is ordered from best to worst. These albums I have chosen are albums that go above and beyond the boundaries of music, and have brilliance to share in whatever forms they take. All of the albums I've chosen are very special to me in one way or another, even if they're outside of my comfort zone, because a comfort zone doesn't matter when you're trying to comprehend all forms of music.
I've added little stories that describe my feelings when listening to each album. They're quite odd, but I love a little odd now and then.

"Make yourself a bigger sponge, because you've got a lot to soak in now. You got your golden age of sex and violence, but the point of aging is to mature like a fine wine, and so we can get something better than gold: spirit. You think that's what defines the part of the 'rainbow' I came from? You think you know everything, and not just about me but yourself? I dare you to go through more than an hour of experimentation and tell me if you expected that from someone like me." [First added to this chart: 04/04/2020]
"This next film I will direct will focus on a very controversial topic: philosophical intercourse. Imagine the man who makes love to his guitar, and imagine the woman who makes love to her drugs. Bring them together and film it. With my direction, you have something as pure as gold, as well as something more controversial than pornography but not as vulgar. You have an epic poem played like a rock album, a story of love, life and loss as well as death, drugs and damsels in distress. Come play with Jimi. Come play with Dr. Feelgood, because philosophical intercourse is not a belief, or a sin. It's a musical style. And when you've perfected it, you've won my respect."

"Should children listen to sonic landscapes that never make it on the radio? Children should be playing with their pop punk rockers and wearing Britney Spears clothes... or, maybe we need to re-evaluate what we consider "for the children," because sonic pop is something new and innovative. And if we don't take advantage of that, our children will never become men." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]
"You are a brother." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]
"I see the brightest blue sky covering the glowing green natural world around me, shielding us all from the darkness of other realms. Instead, we must work to not let our own personal darknesses taint the natural world, not like politics but like men should to mice. The birds want to sing with us, but we rarely ever give them a reason to join us. Now maybe we can try to understand the pain of the birds by sharing with us our own, and they'll no longer have to hide from us by flying high up on the telephone wires, and we can sit on a tree branch like two little kinds and chirp and chat together." [First added to this chart: 04/04/2020]
"I need someone to talk to about the relationships between an average man and the average noir. Did those old movies get so popular because stories like that happen everyday? That seems to be my whole life. I'm doing fine most of the time, but it's hard to let go of a lot of things." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]
"So, were you guys always this drugged up? Because I jumped as high in the sky as I could, and couldn't find a woman named Lucy. Though I think I have an idea of what's going on in your tiny little minds, because I did see a lot of things that nearly killed me. It's a shame I cleaned myself up, because I'd like to meet them again for a cup of tea. But if you want to brave the journey to a knock-off of Heaven to see these odd sites again, tell me about it." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]
"I bought a book on magic a few days ago, and it's probably the best self-help book I've ever read. Every written word is like a note to a song." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]
"No ticket required. All you have to do is shoot a man in Reno, and record him dying with a camera. Play me the video, and I'll judge how much masculinity you had when you killed the man. It helps if this was the manner in which you decided to divorce your 'wife.' Play me the video, then I'll show you what a real cowboy is like." [First added to this chart: 04/04/2020]
"I'm drunk, and I'm drugged. You just can't imagine what I'm seeing right now. For example, you look like a walrus head. Your wine looks like my dick, and I'm making out with a goddess of storms." [First added to this chart: 04/03/2020]

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 mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 93.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.5.

The notes themselves deserves 110/100, brilliant work and a great list! As one trying to write something for my own chart for a veery loooong time, i had a great time going through it and tbh it inspired me!!!
And how beautifully this sums up Fleetwood Mac's Rumours:
''Let us all sing about how the hate we have for each other brings us together as friends.''
Your list made me think again on my own decisions. I cant stand Jay Z though lol, good list regardless.
Solid work mate.
I may not like all of them, but this is a great blend of albums with some cool recs to check out.
For the new created chart i give you 90 points because you have more Led Zeppelin album here and that is what i like.
Love the notes throughout, they've made me reappraise some albums I tend to keep overlooking. Also, we have very little albums in common, which always excites me. Few things are as exciting as new discoveries.
Good chart i like your collection only one point there is only one Beatles album here. but ok I gave you 85 point for good album and much diversity.
Good chart! Jazz and R&B are well-represented.
When a chart can be eclectic and consistent at the same time. Love your write-ups.
Woah, blade runner sound track, I love it!
