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.

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 this week chart Marie Fredriksson is number one. It is her second #1 on the chart the other one is "Den ständiga resan" An interesting thing about this is that now Marie Fredriksson has been in the top 10 with two albums this year without releasing anything. In the top 10 Tori Amos new album climbs all the way to #5 from #26. Her last album did not reach more than #6 back 1996 (also it's debut number). The only new entry this week is Madonna her latest album 'Ray of light' at #49. This week the chart is no that many albums that are big threats to the top position but everything can change rapid.
