MCCh 2015 (10) June 15

Post by Otisredding » Mon Jun 15, 2015 8:54 am

The best albums of 2015 (update June 15)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating and the number of reviews (out of 32 included sources). The weighted average is based on a formula that includes a) the average of ratings and b) the number of sources that have rated the album.

The magazines I used for the ratings were:
EUR + Australia: Gaffa-dk; Gaffa-sw; Jenesaispop; Laut; LesInrocks; Mondosonoro; Music-story; Musikexpress; Nojesguiden; Ondarock; Plattentests; Playgroundmag; Sentire Ascoltare; The Music
UK: DIY; Drowned In Sound; The Guardian; Music OMH; NME; The Line Of Best Fit; The Skinny; The 405
USA + Canada: Allmusic; AV Club; Consequence Of Sound; Exclaim!; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Spin; Tinymixtapes

Highlights: These are the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, Gaffa.dk, Gaffa.se, The Irish Times, The Independent, Digital Spy, BostonGlobe, etc…

Thanks Harold. All right.

I thought everyone was busy with the survey of the best songs, but now I see that someone remembers MCCh.

Your posts usually go up between midnight and 3:00 a.m. over here on the U.S. Pacific. Sometimes I'm unfortunate enough to still be awake by 3:00, and if the post doesn't go up by that time, I have a tiny, silent panic attack. And then I fall asleep.

Not that it's any rush to you Otis - please take your time! But please also note that you will always have adoring fans clambering for your results ;)

Thanks Setherex.


By the way, Harold and Setherex, have sent their list of the best songs ever ?

Time is running out.

Sorry - an all-time song list would require more time than I have to give right now. I'll sit back and enjoy the results (and, probably, curse the ones that could have ranked higher if I'd voted. Go, "Brief Candles," go!).
