EOY 2019: UPROXX Critics' Poll (US)

Post by Future Critic »

UPROXX critics poll for best albums of 2019 is here: https://uproxx.com/critic-polls/best-al ... tics-poll/

I should have time to transcribe it sometime after Christmas, if nobody beats me to it.

VERY disappointed that they got rid of the best songs section.
