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]

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]

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.

Ten 
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]

Personally, the most important album to me and that I will ever hear, since it shaped my childhood and they're my favourite band of all time. I've never heard a band sound as rejuvenated as they do on this album. It's also my favourite album cover ever. I could gaze at it for eternity.

And don't get me started on the music videos, which the band is better than anyone else at making. The visual imagery on those videos is beyond incredible. They're one of the reasons why this album is so euphoric, precious and down to earth, while at the same many galaxies beyond anything I've ever heard before and anything I ever will hear.

To me the perfect record in the best imaginable way. Whenever I put it on, it sends me right down to 2002-2003 and makes me feel like a five-year-old again. If I could pick any album to encapsulate my life, I think this would be it. [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]

I'll always remember watching the 'I Am Trying to Break Your Heart' documentary, then listening to the album again. And when it finally clicked with me, it instantly became one of the most powerful listening experiences I've ever had. [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 is rated in the top 9% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 87.1/100, a mean average of 86.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.8/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 13.0.

Sorry, this is just like a copy of a general top 100.
There is no hidden gem or something worth exploring, any underrated, but great album.
The only added value is the personal comments to the albums.

most basic chart I have ever seen and I've been through the overall chart. Nothing wrong with being conventional, but this chart is just too much.

22 in common, great chart, slightly conventional but nothing wrong with that, I don't agree with deliberately making uncommon choices just to be different.

I do not like to say it, but this chart seems very familiar and manufactured by any standards. It could have come from a professional music magazine very easily, and that fact has made me suspicious for about a decade and a half.

I might have a small personal bias issue because there are artists here like Pavement, the Strokes, Nirvana, Jeff Buckley and Beck that I really do dislike. Nonetheless, there is absolutely nothing surprising about this chart, and whilst I always appreciate the presence of notes, they do not add the detail good notes would.
