Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by C_Krug2009 (2020)

Clear, concise, and vibey.

I have heard all the classics and BEA friendly albums to death but I just am not interested in rock music anymore. What you see are the remainders that stood the test of time. I am more interested in vibes now and honestly, rap music has more atmospheric vibes than rock music. There is bad rap and good rap just like good rock and bad rock, you gotta find it. But yes, I am a hiphophead)))

And for you haters on hip hop, you hate the lyrics? Sgt Pepper talks about the same stuff rap does. John Lennon talks about beating his girlfriend and his LSD use and he's loved. Think with an open mind but I do think rap would be better if it had more poetic and conscious lyrics.

I like the vibes in music and I am choosing which vibes I like in this chart. No one can say what your favorite album is, it's your opinion. I know what makes "good music". Maturity, lyricism, etc. I am not ranking "the best albums" are. This is based on vibes, so rate the vibes and "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" ;)

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 17% of charts on This chart has a mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 14.4.

I also started listening to hip-hop not so long ago. I did like some songs but wasn't into full albums. Then I heard To Pimp a Butterfly, what a fantastic trip. I'll check some of your recommendations. Nice chart!

My thing is to make more people discover Latin American music. So here are some vibes you may like (everything is on Spotify):

- The first time I actually loved the hip-hop flow was with Calle 13's album Residente o Visitante.
- In 2018, I discovered the person responsible for creating the Rock en Español vibe an impressive musician by the name of Luis Alberto Spinetta, the album to be amazed by is called Artaud by Pescado Rabioso (Rabid Fish), his second band.
- And, from Mexico, you may start with Caifanes, I think you may like El Silencio.

Everything there is splattered with the folk sounds of the Continent.

Let me know what you think about it.

hey @VitorHugoP using autistic as an insult makes you look like an immature teenager much more than liking rap music would.

That being said, great chart! I agree that hip hop, mainly modern hip hop, has some of the best vibes in music.

Okay so I'm confused ...

You say that "I have heard all the classics and BEA friendly albums to death but I just am not interested in rock music anymore" but Revolver, The Doors, Sgt. Pepper, Pet Sounds and Nevermind are all included?? DSotM, In Rainbows and Black Holes ... all crack your top 30?? So .. BEA friendly albums do interest you?

Honestly, I wish there was more stuff in line with your top picks (which are unique and dope btw) nothing wrong with being a hip hop head + your 'vibes' notes are a really great addition, just found your chart's bio a bit confusing with all those BEA-friendly rock albums there.

Keep it up man!

Sick chart, reminds me of what my chart sort of looked like in 2016, I'd chill with you in person.

I like the whole focus on atmosphere, that's sort of what got me into hip-hop in 2012 or so (the whole budding cloud rap movement and the like)

I don't party any more but I respect the lifestyle

Check out Anti's chart, I think you'd appreciate it.

and props on Lana, she's amazing

I'll drop some recs:

Good picks, expected more hiphop from your intro, but still nice.

I like the self-expression, a touch narrow, though. Strong in genres and decades I probably underweight, so I will re-visit when exploring the 90's forward.

Don't like some choices, but SOAD, Operation Doomsday, Lullabies to Paralyze... It's nice. Try the album Brave New World, it's metal which you don't like that much, but it's fantastic
