The best albums of 2017
previous years: MCCh 2016 - MCCh 2015 -
MCCh 2014 - MCCh 2013 - MCCh 2012 - MCCh 2011


MCCh is based on reviews from critics worldwide. We consider all world music sites that meet these conditions:

- Qualified albums (with numbers, letters, drawings, whatever)
- They publish over 400 reviews per year
- This information is accessible online

Beware of imitations :wink:


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.

For now, we consult these websites
EUR + Australia: Gaffa-dk; Gaffa-sw; Humo; Indiestyle; Jenesaispop; Laut; Mondosonoro; Musikexpress; Nojesguiden; Ondarock; Plattentests; 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; Tinymixtapes; Under the Radar


Very Important: You can help improve MCCH: If you know some web sources, please, let me know.

Hey Otis, there seem to be some sources missing compared with the latest 2016 MCCh, namely Humo, Indiestyle, LesInrocks and Spin. Excluded or forgotten?

Anyways, thanks in advance for your fantastic work and massive dedication :happy-partydance:

Les Inrocks and Spin. These two do not qualify the albums.

Humo and Indiestyle: it was an error of mine

New website: Under the Radar

I look for another web, preferably European, to replace Lesinrocks.

Muchas gracias, Otisredding!!! :happy-partydance:

I just typed in Otisredding in Google translate from Spanish to English (crazy, I know) and didn't expect anything. But to my horror it was translated to "desapareciendo" which means "disappearing". Please promise me that this is not a sign!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
