Mega Critic Chart 2021

Post by Otisredding »

The best albums of 2021
previous years: MCCh 2020 - MCCh 2019 - MCCh 2018 -
MCCh 2017 - MCCh 2016 - MCCh 2015 -
MCCh 2014 - MCCh 2013 - MCCh 2012 - MCCh 2011 - MCCh 2010 - MCCh 2009 - MCCh 2008




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: Dansende Beren (New this year thanks to Chilton's proposal); Gaffa-dk; Gaffa-sw; Humo; Indiestyle; Jenesaispop; Laut; Mondosonoro; Musikexpress; Nojesguiden; Ondarock; Plattentests; Sentire Ascoltare; The Music
UK: Clash; DIY; God Is In The Tv; Load And Quiet; Music OMH; NME; The Guardian; The Line Of Best Fit; The Skinny
USA + Canada: Allmusic; Beats Per Minute; Consequence Of Sound; Exclaim!; Nothern Transmissions; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Spectrum Culture; Under The Radar

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