Postby Otisredding » Wed Jan 31, 2018 2:47 pm

The best albums of 2018
previous years: 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
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


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

I'll just ask for above 70 albums before anyone else does again...

Quite a slow start to 2018 - the current number one would only have made number 18 on last year's list. I'm sure there are many great albums to come later this year.
