When rating albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the entire body of similar music. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations or live albums.

My Ratings:

    You are absolutely abnormal dude! You rated the father of jazz-rock's one of the best albums as an average album? - (Mahavishnu Orchestra - The Inner Mounting Flame (1971) - And you overrated Porcupine Tree. Sorry, this is my opinion. :(
