This page has some interesting facts about my album chart. I have just reworked both the information on this page and updated all information on the page. The first 'Fredrik's album chart' was published on the Internet back in the summer of 1997, but the first chart was created in the fall of 1991. Now there have been nearly 430 charts since the beginning back in 1991. On the first chart in 1991 the number one was Rainbirds with their album 'Two faces' and at number two it was Deacon blue was with their album 'Fellow hoodlums'.

The chart has nothing to do with any sales of the records. My chart shows every week what are my favourite albums at the moment. The main criteria are for be on the chart is that I have the album on CD or tape. The only thing that matters is my feelings about the record. The chart is purely based on my personal taste. Important is if I been listening to the album lately. If I also like it surely will rise on the chart. Sometime ago this chart was nominated as site of the day on the Swedish newspaper 'Expressen' site on the 4th of July 1998.

On the first 400 charts there have been different artist has dominated the chart over the years. The first two charts back in 1991 did have two different albums from one artist - Rainbirds at #1. Rainbirds have had 7 albums that have been #1 it's only the live album '' that only reached #3. In 1996 Sarah McLachlan's 'Fumbling towards ecstasy' did spend 12 straight weeks at #1. The album that has spent most weeks at #1 is the soundtrack to Magnolia that included mostly songs from Aimee Mann. It has spent 16 week at the #1 position in 2000-01.
