Mega Critic Chart 2019

Post by Otisredding » Mon Jan 28, 2019 10:29 am

The best albums of 2019
previous years: MCCh 2018 -
MCCh 2017 - MCCh 2016 - MCCh 2015 -
MCCh 2014 - MCCh 2013 - MCCh 2012 - MCCh 2011


MCCh is based on reviews from critics worldwide. We consider all world music sites that meet these conditions:

- Qualified albums (with numbers, letters, drawings, whatever)
- They publish over 400 reviews per year
- This information is accessible online

Beware of imitations :wink:


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.

For now, we consult these websites
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: Clash (new); DIY; Drowned In Sound; God Is In The Tv (new); Load And Quiet (new); NME: The 405; The Guardian; Music OMH (out) ; The Line Of Best Fit; The Skinny
USA + Canada: Allmusic; AV Club (out); Consequence Of Sound; Earbuddy; Exclaim!; Nothern Transmissions (new); Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Spectrum Culture (new); Under The Radar



Very Important: You can help improve MCCH: If you know some web sources, please, let me know.

Dear Otisredding
Thanks again for taking over 'Mega Critic' from me now over 7 years ago . I still check your list twice a month and listen/buy all my music according to your list. As I did it for many years, I know how much work gets involved and therefore another : THANK YOU !

I know it may seem like a formality when we are in 2020, but is this is still happening? I would still like to know were the December releases end up, however few they may be.

With a risk of being obnoxious, I would like to repeat the question whether we could get the final list of 2019 yet? There were some releases with interest and I'd like to finish the playlist.
