The best albums of 2018 (update November 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 am shocked at how low the 1975's "A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships" is debuting at (#61).

Even before the adjustment, it has a score 79.9 with 14 reviews here. However, it has 14 metacritic reviews and 14 anydecentmusic reviews, and only a single publication has given it a score below 80 (Clash gave it a 70). The straight average score from anydecentmusic is an 8.72 and the average from the metacritic reviews is an 87.9.

Further, it is tied with Noname's Room 25 for the highest score on Metacritic for 2018 and holds the highest score for the year on anydecentmusic.

It just doesn't seem like it's score - even prior to the adjustment for the low # of reviews - is correct. Especially since 3 of the top 11 albums have a lower number of reviews. I really thought it'd be a lock for a top 3 spot.

I have reviewed everything.
I do not have mistakes but European critics do not appreciate this album

I agree it was odd to see it with a sub 80 score given ive only seen one review so far rate it below an 80, but i dont know how this formula works. Maybe having a low number of reviews brings the score down?

Only a small update, with indeed only the "low" placement of The 1975 as a surprise (although I think something similar happened to them the last time as well). Anyway here is the playlist:

Brief Inquiry's placement is disappointing, considering it's my #2 for the year (after Double Negative)
