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).

 
 


After 4 weeks at #1 The Merrymakers lose their top position to Regina Lund. At the moment I have no album that must make it all way. It means that in next weeks it can change a lot at the top position (maybe or maybe not). But there are albums the certainly will hit #1 position but they are not released yet. The albums that I'm thinking of are the new albums by Heather Nova (released soon) and Cowboy junkies (released in April).

If you look at the chart you will see two new entries at #23 and #25. At #23 is the latest album by Jules Shear called Between us. The album contains of 15 songs that Jules makes a duet with various people. Two of my favorite artists are among them Rosanne Cash and Margo Timmins (of Cowboy junkies). The other new entry is Tanya Donelly with her album from last year. It took a time before decided to buy it. Both these albums may make it to the top 10. In the top 10 there are two new albums the highest is Nationalteatern at #5 and the other is Luscious Jackson at #10.
