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).

 
 
Kate Bush is at #1 for 2nd week


This week Kate Bush still hold the #1 position of my chart with her 1985 album 'Hounds of love'. On the version that I have their are some additional songs that are not included on the original version. Heather Nova still have the #2 position with her 1993 live album 'Blow'. This week David Baerwald's album 'Triage' reaches #3 and this is the highest it has been so far. At #10 Sam Phillips 6th album from 1996 'Omnipop' enters the chart. This is the first album from Sam Phillips that been on the chart.

At #48 Jane Siberry enters the chart with her 1995 album 'Maria'. Jane Siberry stayed for 6 weeks at #1 back in 1993 with the album 'The walking' and the same time she had two other albums in the top 10 ('Jane Siberry' and 'Bound by the beauty'). Later that year her album 'When I was boy' reached #2.
