Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by asimpkins (2015)

I can't wrap my head around selecting and ranking my favorite 100 albums -- the decade lists were hard enough. So I decided to instead focus on favorites that were underrated and overlooked.

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 Bayesian average rating of 84.5/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 14.7.

Interesting idea for a chart, maybe something I will do with a custom chart once I get my decade and year charts more under control. I appreciate the rankings of Wildflowers and From a Basement on the Hill.

Really unique chart. Superchunk and Circa Survive are definitely underrated on the site, so it's nice to see them represented here.

I like the idea, I suppose, but it's more fitting for a custom chart than an overall, and as it stands it's a bit of a strange execution - yes, these specific releases aren't neccessarily that well praised, but there's really not an obscure band on here, like at all. I guess some people might not know Kevin Devine but after his Devinyl series he's much better known. Hell, you've got several albums on here with hundreds of ratings that appear in more than 100 charts. So sure, I guess they're not in the top 1500 on the site ... oh wait, more than 10% is ... I guess I'm just confused by the concept as a whole here.

As an 100 best underated albums chart its very good. Glad to see you give BRMC and Supergrass representative but sadly 100 is hardly enough positions.
