The best albums of 2019 (update June 30)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating, and, in brackets, average and number of ratings (out of 34 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: 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

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 don't want to hassle you Otisredding, but last update you never added the new song highlights, so there are a lot missing now. Perhaps you knew, perhaps you didn't, but I thought I should make note of it.

Is Originals not considered eligible for MC? Or has it not been reviewed by enough MC sources?

Thanks, Rob.

It does not bother me that you warn me about that kind of thing, of course.

I've been busier than other seasons.

Now it is

I think the correct thing is not to consider Originals as an album of new songs.

What is your opinion?

Yes, thanks! Just a note, the Baroness song is called Throw Me An Anchor, not Throw Me An Actor. That would be a fascinatingly weird title though.


Anyway, here is the playlist:

Hi OtisRedding,

I know you didn't ask me, but as a fan of MC, and on the purely hypothetical basis of if it was up to me, I'd include it.

Prince's Originals is almost in a category of its own. You're right in that it's not an album of new songs, since we are familiar with them. But it's not a covers album, nor is it a live album featuring previously released material, so we can't exclude it for the reasons we would exclude, say, Beyoncé's Homecoming. This album is the first time we are hearing the artist performing their own songs.

In 2017 Neil Young's Hitchhiker featured on MC, and only 2 of its 10 songs were previously unreleased. Beth Gibbons/PNRSO's version of Górecki's 3rd is getting a guernsey this year, and if I remember correctly Colin Stetson featured a few years ago with the same symphony. Though I guess you could argue these are "reimaginings" rather than faithful covers. Nevertheless I agree with your desicion to include them!

Much love for all the work you put in twice a month.

Thanks for your words.

Sometimes it is not easy to decide if an album has the characteristics to be included in MCCh.

Sometimes the problem is, for example, the duration of the album, the so-called EP.

In others, decide whether it is new songs or not.

In these cases I follow the criteria of Allmusic, Pitchfork, etc. These media do not consider Originals a new album, but they enter the category of Compilation or Reissues. I also believe that few media will include it in the lists of the best albums of 2019.

That seems fair, and in the spirit of MCCh (i.e. reflecting consensus). The coming years may yet see Prince as new music is released from the vault.
