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).

 
 
This weeks #1

This week Cowboy junkies returns to the #1 position this is the 5th week on the top. It is only Heather Nova with her 'Siren' album that has spent 8 weeks that can beat that. So Clannad only got to spend one week at #1 this time, but maybe they will be back next week? This week Cardigans enters the chart at #3 with their new album 'Gran turismo'. This makes it the highest position that any Cardigans album has reached. The previous highest position is their album that reached #8 and 'First band on the moon' that only made it to #11. There are two other new entries in the top 20. It is Buffalo Tom with 'Smitten' and Astrid with 'Boy for you'. Buffalo Tom's both previous albums (that have entered the chart) both made it to the top 10. Astrid this week makes her debut on my chart.

This week Indigo girls does something that no one have done before on my chart. It is to spent over 200 weeks on the chart. The album that does this is 'Rites of passage' (this week it at #71).
