Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by wizardalien

Eligible albums: 582

My Top 100 (no live albums or greatest hits albums)

Albums must be listened to twice to be rated and considered for the chart

Albums ranked by:
1) Average track rating (tracks rated 50 to 100 in intervals of 5)
2) Trimmed average track rating (removing best and worst song)
3) Best track rating
4) 2nd best track rating
and so on...

Track ratings logic:
100 - flawless, could be in my top 20 easily
95 - in the conversation for top 100
90 - not quite top 100 material, but pretty damn good
85 - too good for 80, but definitely not 5 stars
80 - can't remove this song from my itunes
75 - wouldn't skip if it came up on shuffle
70 - would probably skip if it came up on shuffle, but still decent
65 - there is a redeeming quality about the track but I'd always skip if it came up on shuffle
60 - I get nothing from listening to this track, not unpleasant but it's filler
55 - actually annoying or difficult to listen to
50 - the absolute worst

My overall average track rating is 76.1 currently

Very nice chart. Could do with a tad more earlier stuff but that’s not a criticism, simply an observation. Overall, I like it
