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 on the 4th of July 1998.

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).

 
 
#1 this week - Kate Bush


For the third week Kate Bush stays at #1 and Heather Nova at #2. This week Sam Phillips reach the #4 position with her 1996 album 'Omnipop'. In the top ten have the same albums as last week. This week at #50 Marti Jones enters the chart with her 1996 album 'My long haired life', this is the second album from her that have been on the chart. The other album is the 1990 album 'Any kind of lie' that reached #4 back in 1995. This week five new entries outside the Top 50. They are Scarlet ('Chemistry'), John Hiatt ('Warming up the ice age' and 'Riding with the king') Cindy Lauper ('Sisters of Avalon') and Kirtsty MacColl ('Electric landlady'). All albums did I find at sale fore very good price. Some of these albums will surely reach the top 50 in a few weeks or so.
