The best albums of 2014 (update September 30)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating and the number of reviews (out of 32 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; Jenesaispop; Laut; LesInrocks; Mondosonoro; Music-story; Musikexpress; Nojesguiden; Ondarock; Plattentests; Playgroundmag; 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; Exclaim!; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Spin; Tinymixtapes

Highlights: These are the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, The Irish Times, The Independent, Digital Spy, BostonGlobe, etc..

So happy to see Perfume Genius crack the top 10. I really need to check out this new Aphex Twin album.

Leonard Cohen placed lower than I thought he would, but it's great to see so much action in the upper reaches of the list after being essentially stagnant (except for fka Twigs) all summer. I was hoping Aphex Twin would debut all the way at #1 - not necessarily because I'm a huge fan of the album (although I do like it a lot), but because I'm storing my 2014 albums by MCCh rank in a transparent bin that faces outward and I'm getting a little tired of that creepy-ass baby staring at me.

I agree with this.

It is possible that in the next update, Leonard Cohen into the top 20 and Aphex Twin gets to number one (both have only 24 of the 32 possible ratings).

It could be worse. FKA Twigs could be #1 :wink:

Otisredding, how do you pick those 3 highlights per album?
(btw, thanks for doing this, I mainly use your list for listening to new music)

In the presentation I say this:

Highlights: These are the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, The Irish Times, The Independent, Digital Spy, BostonGlobe, etc ...

I make a small ranking with the songs most valued of these sites.

Sometimes these sites have not qualified albums. In this case I look and look and look and read many reviews to establish the most rated songs. (Example: Jenny Hval & Susanna: Meshes of Voice)

Gracias, Otisredding.

If you don't have enough sources, you may want to take a look at rateyourmusic's track ratings (pick an album, scroll down until the end of the reviews, then click "track ratings"). This may help. Of course, those ratings aren't done by professional critics, but I think it may be worth doing, since there aren't a lot of sources for this, anyway.

Thanks Spiderpig. I'll keep that in mind. Surely this will help me sometimes.
