My Favorite Albums of All Time

Alright, let's get this one over with. This list will continuously be updated as I rate more albums. I rate and rank my albums on an average scoring system. This means I give each song on each album a score, add up all the scores on each album, and find the average score for the album which becomes its rating. Albums that tie on scores are manually put in order of how much I like them compared to the others.
Also, this list is VERY loose, so just because an album gets a certain rating or is put in a certain place doesn't necessarily mean that's exactly where I have it in my list of favorite albums. Just a rough estimate of where it might be.
This list is a non-votable list and the content of the list reflects the opinion of its author.
