The most cohesive, imaginative album I've ever heard. A concept album that is so visceral that it feels like it's ingrained into the English culture. I feel like I'm walking through the streets of London in the '60s when listening to it or like I'm watching a Wallace and Gromit film. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

This album represents everything The Beatles stood for, thanks to the intellectually stimulating songwriting and The Beatles' brilliant vision, brought to life by the incredible late Geoff Emerick.
The passion on this album gives me shivers.

The greatest transitional album of all time and The Beatles album that moves me the most, probably because you can still hear the nostalgia of the bands early days. No wonder Brian Wilson wrote the masterpiece Pet Sounds after listening to this album. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

Perhaps the most definitive Beatles album, alongside Revolver. It's the most bittersweet and tender farewell you will ever hear in music. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

This is the biggest sounding album I've ever heard, thanks to Butch Vig's production. Kurt Cobain's vocals come alive like nothing else. It feels like I'm breathing in extra oxygen. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

Pearl Jam's Ten makes me feel more nostalgic than any other album in the world. To me it's the pinnacle of the '90s and will always be a massive part of me. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

Radiohead's most cohesive album and to me their defining statement. It combines their, The Bends era pop sensibilities, with the more eclectic and experimental nature of later albums like Kid A. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

Another deeply nostalgic album from my childhood that, like Sgt. Pepper, is so ingrained into the English culture that it feels like a part of you. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

An album so breathtaking in its beauty. It's one of those albums that sound exactly like their album covers, in that I feel like I'm flying through the mountains when listening to it. The album defines the human experience better than any other album. [First added to this chart: 06/28/2020]

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 has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 5.8.
