Some of the ranking is ok, but Moscow and Mex C are much too high and Sydney, Seattle, and Melbourne too low.

I'd re-rank more like:

1- New York
2- Hong Kong
3- Shanghai
4- Chicago
5- Chongquing
6- Guangzhou
7- Shenzhen
8- Singapore/Toronto/Melbourne
9- Tokyo/Sydney
10- Kuala lumpur/Seattle
11- Miami/LA
12- Manila
13- Bangkok/Jakarta
14- Philly/Brisbane
15- San Francisco/Houston
16- Atlanta/Minneapolis/Calgary
17- Moscow/ Mexico City
18- Perth/Montreal/Dallas
19- Tianjin/Mumbai/Santiago
20- Auckland/Hanoi

Moscow should be at the top outside of some Chinese cities with 2x more buildings.

Everyone rates skylines differently. Some primary based on size, others on arrangement and layout, others on architecture styles, and others on a combination of factors.

2- Shanghai /Shenzhen : 4 completed
3- Moscow/ Kuala Lumpur : 3 Completed
4- Houston / Busan: 2 Completed

Please add a few more in case I have missed!

Busan didn't make it on anyone's top 20 list here as usual, which hosted APEC in 2005.
However, in my opinion, Busan's skyline deserves to mention here since the buildings over 200m are more than 10, not to mention the building over 400m is U/C.

This is basically a 'World's Top 20 Minus Dubai' as nothing else outside of APEC makes the cut. Moscow might squeak into my top 20, but only by a hair.

01. New York
02. Shanghai
03. Hong Kong
04. Shenzhen
05. Chicago
06. Guangzhou
07. Toronto
08. Chongqing
09. Tokyo
10. Kuala Lumpur

11. Melbourne
12. Singapore
13. Beijing
14. Tianjin
15. Nanjing
16. Manila
17. Bangkok
18. Jakarta
19. Seoul
20. Moscow

Busan just misses my cut off. It has better presence and balance than much larger Seoul, but gets nipped at the tape by a few other skylines. I really like the Busan skyline, but it needs a few more towers to get in the conversation.

On a related topic, Melbourne is pint sized compared to most of the other skylines in my top 20, but it's near flawless. It has no weaknesses other than the point I just alluded to. Grow baby, grow!

If you check all the top 10 lists on SSC, a good half of people have Toronto in their top 10. Your ranking of Moscow is far more questionable. Practically no one puts Moscow in their top 10 and its skyline is smaller than Toronto's. The data backs that up if you bothered checking. Mexico City doesn't belong in a top 10 either.
