The current USA #1 album is Golden Hour, surprisingly enough (finishing at #1 in the Uproxx aggregate poll didn't hurt).

As it is, it's below both Dirty Computer and Double Negative - the latter of which is the only other album to make all three top 10 lists. I continue to be both impressed and shocked by how well it's performing.
Are US critics normally slow to pick-up on the acclaimed releases from new foreign acts? The only non-US releases that have ranked top on the EoYs this decade were from established artists. Maybe the accolades for Joy as an Act of Resistance will pick up in the EoD lists. Still, that it's so high on this list is better than I expected.

I also underestimated how much Low changing their sound on Double Negative would captivate the list-makers. It's placement will far surpass that of the band's other albums at AM. I did wonder whether critics honestly thought it was better than the likes of I Could Live in Hope or Things We Lost in the Fire but some of them really are claiming it to be Low's masterpiece!

Thought it might be fun to do a bit of groundless speculation on where the albums might end up in the next update based on the spreadsheet. I’d guess that Dirty Computer will be around 260ish, then Low and the Idles record will duel it out in the 400ish mark. Daytona will be around 500ish, with Honey at the 600ish mark. Golden Hour, the Sophie album, and Heaven On Earth will debut at the 750ish mark, while all of the albums from about 7 to Negro Swan would end up, I’m guessing, in the 800ish-900ish zone.

Anyone else want to chime in with their own wild guesses? All in all, it seems to have been a pretty open year as far as the field of albums is concerned.

I think US critics are also moving away from rock and more towards hip-hop/pop (blame it on poptimism). That and US critics seem a bit scared off by overt British accents in music. Stuff like The Beatles, where you can't even tell the singer is British, is fine, but the singer from IDLES has one hell of an accent and it really shows.

This last point is just speculation though.

I’m having a guess that Dirty Computer is gonna struggle to hit the Top 500 and obviously the others will be below that as well.
Could it be the first time that a year isn’t represented in the top 500 since the 1950’s?

Well, it certainly looks like DC will have the lowest spreadsheet point total of any #1 album since I've been doing this. The previous low was 269 for Yeezus in 2013, but it still finished well within the top 500 on the next update. I think that the top three albums will make the top 500, although I agree that they will be lower than usual for the top finishers.

I might be wrong but i was under the impression that the all time rankings are partly decided by relations to other albums in a particular year, meaning it's nearly impossible for the number one for the year to not end up in the top 500 at least

The thing with Double Negative is that people who like it truly seem to love it. Perhaps more so than any other album this year it seems to be deeply embraced, not by the mainstream, but by a certain group of music fans. It might actually end up growing in status over the years, when more people discover it.

Personally, I think it a work of beauty, regardless of what came before. With such a radical style break it doesn't matter if previous albums were also masterpieces. It can stand more on it's own.

I think this is totally fitting - this was the weakest year for top albums this century I think. Many things I liked, but nothing even close to an enduring classic this year - I mean, the last 3rd of Dirty Computer sucks, Idles is great in it's forcefulness, but I still have this nagging feeling Brutalism is actually still better and critics hadn't just hadn't caught on to them yet. Double Negative is interesting, and I love two or three of the tracks, but it's not even in the ball park of say Kid A, or even Maybe Liars WIXIW from a few years back, which are albums I'm most reminded of when listening. Mitski is solid, but if that's your album of the year, as it was for many publications, it's a real down year. Liked Shame's debut a lot, but being serious, there are so many punk releases through the years so much stronger than that.

Only two albums I have huge affection for this year and see myself returning to time and again in future years are Parquet Courts Wide Awake, which to me, while being very fun in a Minutemen/Black Keys El Camino/Beastie BOy's Paul's Boutique sort of way, manages to capture some essence of the twitter-age trump angst chaos presently plaguing the states, and Confidence Man's Confident Music For Confident People, which is so far from a being masterpiece, but is just really, really fun in a purposefully campy, stupid but endearing way.

The last third of Dirty Computer sucks? The part that includes “Don’t Judge Me” and “So Afraid”?! No way!

I think 2018 has had a lot of very good albums, and a couple all-timers. It’s the first year to feature multiple 5-star albums since 2010.

Updated with:

Rest of the World: Rockerilla [Italy]; Porcys [Poland]

Plus a number of adjustments and corrections made by Henrik (particularly with regard to national-only columns).

It's getting very near the end (we'd like to thank you once again...), I think. I'll edit the Grammy column after Album of the Year is awarded to Kacey Musgraves (my prediction) a week from Sunday, and the Village Voice appears to be gradually posting all of the previous Pazz and Jop polls before unveiling this year's (they're only up to 2000, so it will take a while).

Revised top 200 albums:

1 / Janelle Monae / Dirty Computer
2 / Low / Double Negative
3 / IDLES / Joy as an Act of Resistance
4 / Pusha T / Daytona
5 / Mitski / Be the Cowboy
6 / Robyn / Honey
7 / Kacey Musgraves / Golden Hour
8 / SOPHIE / Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides
9 / Beach House / 7
10 / Kamasi Washington / Heaven and Earth
11 / Arctic Monkeys / Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino
12 / Courtney Barnett / Tell Me How You Really Feel

Thanks for the screenshots. Since the list clearly was posted accidentally, far in advance of when they're planning to end this gradual rollout, I'm going to wait to add it to the spreadsheet until it's 100% "official." At this point, it's not likely to change the rankings very much in any case.

If this is indeed the actual P&J list, I'm quite impressed by how commanding Golden Hour's victory is, along with how far ahead of the pack both it and Dirty Computer ended up.

Final update (most likely), following Kacey Musgraves winning Album of the Year at the Grammys. The top 200 list directly above remains the same.
