USA/Canada: Antiquiet
Rest of the World: Dagsavisen [Norway]; Efe Eme (Intl & Natl) [Spain]; The Age [Australia]; Porcys [Poland]

Screenagers, the other Polish source, should be posting their list this week (they're currently rolling out their singles list), which will probably wrap this up (with the exception of updating the Grammy column when Album of the Year is awarded, if I remember to do that).

You're welcome, and thank you, Henrik! Honestly, as much work as this is, it's a genuine pleasure for me.

Thanks to everyone who's posted an EOY list in this forum - I could not do this without all of your help!

I believe those are ineligible, due to only one contributor.

Ok, i have checked, in the Dazed list they say "we pick this year’s most explosive creations", Daisy Jones seems to be just the "text author". The Bleep's list says "Bleep's Best of 2015" and there's no reference to a single critic, so seems to be a collective approach as well.
As for ABC list, you are right, it was done by one critic: "I liked a lot more albums than I could include on this list".

However, Time Out New York list clearly says "We've narrowed down our top 25 picks of 2015", "Some of our favorite artists". Also, all 5 contributors are named.

DazedDigital don't have album reviews I think.
Bleep has to be classified as a store I think.
Time Out New York don't have album reviews either on their website, but presumably in the printed magazine?

DazedDigital is the web arm of the Dazed magazine which may have reviews. I'll check this...
Henrik wrote:Bleep has to be classified as a store I think.

that is sad to hear. for example Album Of The Year site includes Bleep... maybe they could be included someday, but with less "weight" ?

I have found the magazines.

The Time Out New York has indeed a "Music" section with proper reviews. I can photograph the pages if you wish.

With Dazed magazine the situation is a bit tricky. I have 4 copies from 2004, 2007 and 2011. There's a "Music" section in the magazine. In 2004 and 2007 issues there are several articles there, some on them on albums, but others on labels/events. There's also "This month's recommendations" section with a lot of albums, however in 2004 issue a "review" under each album consists of only 1 sentence, but in 2007 issue there are already 3-4 sentences. But. Both 2011 issues instead of "Recommendations" contain a proper "Music Reviews" section with proper reviews.
