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).

 
 
Siren


The highest new entry this week is Heather Nova at #1 spot. This is the first #1 that Heather has had. Her previous studio albums before this one have peaked at #4 (Oyster) and #5 (Glow stars). This week Tori Amos continue to climb closer to the top with From the choirgirl hotel to #2. Heather Nova is not the only one that enter the chart in the top 10 this week the other album is Imperiet and their album Rasera + mini LP. Imperiet have also their Greatest hits album that is climbing the chart this week at #26.

At the moment there are many albums that are coming from the behind and slowly getting closer to the top 10. This means that in the next couple weeks are big chances to happen in the top. Still I think that Heather Nova will stay top for some weeks now. There are not at the moment any albums that can compete with her, but you never know.
