The best albums of 2018 (update April 15)

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; Earbuddy; Exclaim!; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; 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…

It’s really time to thank you again, Otisredding. You’re doing a fantastic job with this chart, as always! :greetings-waveyellow:

Very unusual to have a leader with only 8 ratings.
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Exactly, Otis! With these three new women we have a 45,71% (16/35). Almost half!!

I checked the evolution of the percentage of female acts on the MCCh 2018 and it goes like this:
MCCh 2018 (01) 50% (5/10)
MCCh 2018 (02) 33,33% (5/15)
MCCh 2018 (03) 35% (7/20)
MCCh 2018 (04) 44% (11/20)
MCCh 2018 (05) 43,33% (13/30)
MCCh 2018 (06) 45,71% (16/35)

Awesome...
