top 100 albums

I wrote a quick script to dig through my music and try to give a balanced score on an album by album basis. Not too shabby for a 53 line script. The album score is roughly:
sum(track.rating * track.playcount) / album.size / log(album.age)
I'm not sure about the formula, but the top 10 feels right... What do you think? What are your favorite albums?
