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).
For the 4th week The Merrymakers stays at #1. This week the chart is bit static, the reason for this is that I haven't listen that much to music this week. In the top 10 Marie Fredriksson makes a healthy climb of 10 places to land at this week #4. Outside the top 10 there are three albums that are heading towards the Top 10. The three are the albums with The Mopeds, Nationalteatern and Luscious Jackson.
This week there are a new feature on my chart. The feature is that every album with a raise or drop of more than two chart points have been shown in column IDAG (Red raise and blue means drop). Another new feature is that every album outside the top 75 that have a rise with over 2 charts points are shown in the section Just under the chart.
IDAG = today FV = last week 2V = two weeks ago
BP = peek position on the chart ANT.V. = number of weeks on the chart
Red = New entry (NY) Green = Re entry (RE)Bold = a climber on the chart (in IDAG)
