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).

 
 
Yvonne


This week the chart have a new #1 for the forth week running. Three of them has been Swedish artist (Grass-show, Stina Nordenstam and Yvonne). This week it is the second album with the Swedish Yvonne that it is #1. If we look at the albums in the top 5 it will show that 4 out of 5 of them are from Swedish artists. It is not every week that this happens. I think that there are lot of good Swedish music that don't get the response that it deserves. There a two artists that both have previous albums that been at #1 that this week enters the top 10. The artists are Marie Fredriksson and Chris Isaak, that rushes up the chart with about 10 places.

In a lower part of the chart Grant Lee Buffalo enters the top 75 for the first time with the album Fuzzy. It is the first album that ever been on the chart from Grant Lee Buffalo I think that it could make it all the way to the top 10.
