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).
Yet another week the chart has Heather Nova at the top with her absolute brilliant third studio album - Siren. Her last album only reached the #4 position on the chart but it has been on the top half section of the chart for it's 114 weeks in the chart. Oyster were my first contact with Heather Nova so it did not reach the top position but stayed very long instead. With Siren she really has made a great record, just like with Oyster so it is not any question number one this week. The Swedish band Imperiet stays at # 2 with the CD Rasera + mini LP, the CD contains songs from two vinyl albums called Rasera and Mini LP (just like the title suggests). Last week Jennifer Trynin entered the chart at #4, but this week Jennifer drops two places. This is not much to do that album has lost some of its appeal more that both Crowded house and Sheryl Crow have gain strength instead. Cockamamie is the first album by Jennifer I have no discovered that she has released a second album after this one.
This week there are no new entries at all. A thing that might not be interesting is that if you look is that XTC both albums on the chart are or have done some big leaps up the chart this past week. Madonna's latest album Ray of light seems to have stopped its climb just outside the top 20. This is the first album with Madonna that have been on the chart in the same year that it was released.
