The best albums of 2018 (update October 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…

The updated playlist:


Every year there is this one album that falls off the list, only to get back on again, to fall off again, etc. This year Camp Cope has this dubious honor. Well, we will reach 100 soon and that will be the end of it I guess.

Strange to see the Brockhampton album not only tumble out of the list, but end up a lot lower. It fell more than 70 spots. Did some extremely negative reviews for it come in?

I support this punk dominance in the top 10 and desperately hope it's reflected in the EOY lists. Brutalism was one of the most underappreciated albums of last year, I sure hope people wake up to IDLES with the outstanding Joy as an Act of Resistance.

Punk is about the only thing that’s been better than decent this year. Even w quality releases from Idles, Parquet Courts, and a few others, last two months are going to have to produce some seriously amazing albums to avoid me considering it the worst album year of the 21st century - staggering how anemic this year has been from both a quality peak and quality depth standpoint.

Hate sounding like an old man - but collectively 2018 is ducking it out w 73, 74, and a few other’s scattered about decades as one of worst calendar years for popular music since the early sixties.

I liked it on first listen but find the lyrics begin to grate on repeat listening. It's all a bit silly.
