Fredrik's album chart



Welcome to my album chart. The chart has nothing to do with any sales of the records. My chart shows every week what is 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 nominate as site of the day on the Swedish newspaper 'Expressen' site. You can check it out here.

At the moment I about to rearrange how this page a bit. I hope that it will in the end be a better page than it was.

Sometimes you might notice that albums that are not that new are high on the chart. One example is Sheryl Crow with her second album, the reason that Sheryl took over 52 weeks to reach the top position is that it took me sometime to discover what a great album it really was.

1998


There have been over 250 charts since the first one back in 1991. The first chart #1 one the chart was Rainbirds with their third album "Two faces". It only stayed one week at number one before Rainbirds second album went to the #1 as a new entry. Over the years Rainbirds have had 7 number ones on my chart. The artist that has spent most week with one album is Sarah McLachlan. Her album "Fumbling towards ecstasy" stayed 12 weeks at #1 back in 1996. This year Heather Nova has with her third album "Siren" been the longest at #1 with 8 week (w.23-30).

 
 


On the chart this week Tanya Donelly stays put at the #1 position for the third week in a row. The Rainbirds this week have 3 albums in the top 10 and all their seven albums are now in the top 50. In the rest of the top 10 Sheryl Crow makes a big leap from #33 to #10, the biggest reason is that I listen to the album a lot lately and now think that the album is better even than her debut album. The rest of the albums in top 10 only have marginal movement. Just outside the top 10 are some albums that are heading towards it. The albums are John Hiatt with his album Stolen moments, Toni Childs with her album The woman's boat and finally The Adventures with their album Trading secrets with the moon.
