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).

 
 
This week at #1


This week Cardigans with their latest album 'Gran turisom' are at #1. This is the first time that Cardigans are at #1 on the chart. The highest position that Cardigans has before with the album 'Life' that reached #8. Cardigans previous album (First band on the moon) only made to #11 the reason is that when album was released I was not making any charts. Last weeks #1 'The mask and the mirror' this week drops to #3. Last week Sheryl Crow had the #3 album but this week it crash out of the top 10 to #13. This week Heather Nova's album 'Oyster' re enters the top 10 in it's 150 week.
