Here are the criteria for how to determine whether a new source is eligible for the EOY albums/songs spreadsheet:

1. The Alexa.com rank should be less than 1,000,000 (#618,257) and the number of sites linking in should be more than 100 (67). Both these criteria should preferably be met, but if one of the numbers is really strong that might be ok too. Printed magazines that are devoted to music are always eligible.

2. It should be clear that the list was compiled by several people (minimum three) from the staff, or represents the whole staff somehow. List represents the whole staff, 50+ people

3. The source needs to publish at least 10 album reviews per month, and not just recommendations with a couple of sentences per album. 500+ album reviews in 2019 so far

4. A radio or TV channel is eligible if it is a "main station" of a country (typically a public broadcasting service with a focus on music). The staff team requirement needs to be fulfilled but not the number of reviews. N/A

5. No record stores.CHECK

6. No genre lists from non-genre sources, unless they together cover all genres.N/A
Eligibility criteria, all looks good except the number of sites linking in on Alexa
