The best albums of 2018 (update September 30)

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…

I thought for sure Prince's new set Piano & a Microphone 1983 would make it. It's got an 84 at Metacritic with 16 ratings.

Very happy to see Janelle so high, and I really want to check out the Christine & the Queens album. I like her 2014 album a fair bit.

Otisredding, I don't want to pester you or anything, but last update we never got the song highlights. I know time can be limited, but I wondered if you perhaps wanted some help with that?

Strange that Caroline Rose's album Loner still has only had 8 reviews that qualify here. It's been out since early in the year.

Thanks, Rob

No problem. Take care!

The updated playlist:
[spotifyplaylist]https://open.spotify.com/user/theonerin ... AuAVGjUmRE[/spotifyplaylist]

I contemplated what to do with the Christine album, as it was released in both English and French (her native language). I kept with the English versions for now, but perhaps I change it up in the future.

Also, last update we lost Kadhja Bonet's Childqueen. I recommend that album heartily.
