Best of 2019Below is our updated running tally of the albums most frequently mentioned by individual music publications in their year-end top ten lists.

Although many of the lists come from publications whose reviews are included on this site, we have also included extra lists from prominent music stores, websites, a few radio stations, and publications not normally found in Metacritic's music section.

Note that if a source ranks more than the standard 10 albums, we will not include titles ranked 11th or worse. (We do include unranked lists of 11-20 items, though each album gets just one-half of a point.) In case of a tie for first or second, each album will receive the full points for that position. If a publication has multiple lists for different genres, we attempt to choose the most general one.

Our points system works as follows:

  • 3 points for each 1st place ranking
  • 2 points for each 2nd place ranking
  • 1 point for being ranked 3rd - 10th, or for being included on an unranked list of 10 or fewer albums
  • 0.5 points for being included on an unranked list of 11-20 albums

  • DanielArmstrong  

    On Pitchfork's list, Solange's album at 5th place is called "When I Get Home", not "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?"

  • kayhamed  

    Mattydigs, I'm sorry but you are just a disgraceful racist that judge the quality of albums by the color of artists' skin. it was only 2 years ago that kendrick lamar was at number 1 and every year it might differ. It's just about quality and I hope next time you fix yourself.

  • markymark  

    Mattydigs - if they went by userscore, the list would be:

    1 Lana Del Rey
    2 The Who
    3 FKA Twigs
    4 Nick Cave and the BAd Seeds
    5 New Pornographers
    6 Metronomy
    7 Madonna
    8 Carly Rae Jepsen
    9 Weyes Blood
    10 Leonard Cohen

    How is that not even whiter? It's not even that different to the critics list! And if you think John Mayer is cool, well i would suggest that's half the problem right there...

  • Mattydigs  

    Absolutely ridiculous, painfully white (not the cool white like John Mayer either), and wildly inaccurate end of year top 10's. It's like all these critics gather into a room at the end of ever year to huff eachother's farts and compliment each other on having the exact same milquetoast taste. You're much better off youtubing "top 10 albums of 2019" where you'll get more of a mix of genres and frankly, less crappy albums. Yes, there are critically acclaimed crappy albums. Metacritic LOVES those type of albums. Go by the fan score. Always.
