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).

 
 
Sheryl Crow #1 this week
Lorenna McKinnett this new at #7


This week Sheryl Crow makes it to #1 with her 1996 album. The album never was #1 in 1996 or in 1997 the first week it was #1 was in 1998 and the second week in 1999! The main reason for it being #1 this week is her concert on Olympen in Lund that I was on. She played many of my favourite songs from this album. I have been listening to her albums after the concert.

The highest new entry this week is Loreena McKinnett with her 1991 album 'The visit'. This week I got my two CDs with her that I ordered from Boxman. The other CD is 'The mask and mirror'. This week Aztec camera enters the chart at #26 with their album 'Knife'. Roddy Frame was playing before Sheryl Crow and he played some of the old songs from his band - Aztec camera.
