MCCh 2017 (09) May 31

Post by Otisredding » Wed May 31, 2017 10:24 am

The best albums of 2017 (update May 31)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating, and, in brackets, average and number of ratings (out of 31 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; 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

Highlights: These are the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, The Skinny, Beardfood, BostonGlobe, Nowtoronto, Entertainment Weekly, etc…

Otisredding, the name of the artist at #31 should be spelled Blanck Mass, not Blank.

I'm sorry for pestering you with this every two weeks, Otisredding, but could you add the highlights for the top three new entries so I can update the playlist?

Thanks! Here is the new update:



The Ty Segall tracks:

Warm Hands (Freedom Returned): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqD_4ZvxI48

Orange Color Queen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbEQgKFor9Y

Take Care (to Comb Your Hair): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bycWOz6RwIg

The PWR BTTM tracks:

Silly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkNOA20GoAc

Answer My Text: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmMOiwLocPQ

LOL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31vSvSIy27s

The PWR BTTM tracks are also in the Spotify list but are not available in every region. The YouTube video's of LOL and Answer My Text are to album cuts, but I'm afraid I could only find a live version of Silly.
