Post by Otisredding »

The best albums of 2020 (update October 15)

The numbers presented next to each album title are the weighted average rating, and, in brackets, average and number of ratings (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; 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; The Guardian; The Line Of Best Fit; The Skinny
USA + Canada: Allmusic; Consequence Of Sound; Earbuddy; Exclaim!; Nothern Transmissions; Paste; Pitchfork; Popmatters; Rolling Stone; Spectrum Culture; Under The Radar

Highlights: Rob makes the top three songs from the album according to Allmusic, Consequence of Sound, Jenesaispop, Plattentests, The Skinny, etc…

Thanks, Otisredding - great work as usual! One thing - as much as we'd all undoubtedly like this year to end more quickly, the date in the subject line should be October 15, not October 30.

Deftones took a major tumble after debuting in the top 10. Presumably that impressive start was the result of advance reviews from sources predisposed to be in their corner.

Updated playlist:



The Microphones in 2020 is still not on Spotify. Here it is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7BkabF31ak

I already mentioned earlier that The Chats seem to flipflop outside of the list and here they are again. It's odd that there is one of these each year.
Otherwise it really feels like the second half of the year has stopped giving for the most part. It's not just Covid, as albums are still being made, but at least based on MegaCritic the quality seems to be dropping a little.

The numbers 14,16 and 17 are not new but risers, they are colored wrong. Working Men's Club at #60 is the real highest newcomer.

Personal bug of mind that although you draw on a wide selection of reviews the list remains North American (principally US) and British Isles (principally English) centric. I wish the critics listened more broadly. This thought just came to mind listening to Declan McKenna new release and I can think of half a dozen releases from Australia that I would rate higher and I’m sure that view would be replicate by listeners around the world who are more familiar with the music scene within their own countries
