    Fiona, RTJ, Dylan and Taylor will likely be top 4. I think Dua will also be in the top 10.

    Fiona, RTJ4 and Punisher will likely be the top 3, followed by Folklore and Perfume Genius in the top 5 and Bob Dylan in the top 10. Future Nosstalgia will get a couple of top 10-20s and some top 5s from British publications, which should be enough for a top 10-15.

    After Hours while not being a critical fave it may be favored for the award season push (I definitely see r&b/hip hop publications like HipHopDX and Complex ranking it high), the era work overall and The Weeknd’s popularity this year – as well the fact that he managed to mix his eariler work with his mainstream sound, as reviewers pointed out – so a top 20 is pretty reasonable.

    Sawayama is this year’s thank u next – critically acclaimed in the start but failing to make high spots in the end. It barely made mid-year rankings, that should be indicative.

    What’s happening?! I’m liking these lists so far. Laura Marling once again in top 10, and Fleet Foxes that high. But it’s because British lists are usually better then Americans’. Last year, I remember liking those aggregators’ results less and less with the passing of the weeks.

    I mean, Laura Marling will probably be in the top 15 of the aggregated. So, there’s that. Fleet Foxes should do well too. But American critics do seem semi over the band despite the still overall good reviews.

    They gave folklore an excellent 9, one of the highest score of 2020 yet the album missed the list. RTJ4 and Ohms also nowhere to be found despite solid 8.

    There are definitely gonna be a handful of publications that will mark down FTBC and RTJ4 for being as widely acclaimed and talked about as they are. Forklore is likely gonna be all over the place. It’ll be in a lot of top 10s but also entirely miss a good deal of lists, partly because some just don’t like it that much but also because of its MC score and Swift’s mainstream/social media popularity.

    It looks like Phoebe, Laura and Bob are leading the pack but yeah this is too early. MOJO’s list will be revealed in a few days and once again it looks like Laura and Bob will make another appearances, and Taylor is coming too.

    Laura is a Brit and has always been really popular with critics there. I’m not expecting the love to sustain, especially once the lists become American centric and more mainstream/populist. Though, as I said, I do expect her to end up in the top 15. I’m also not expecting Fiona to appear that high in most British publications, outside of The Gaurdian and The Independent. They’ve never really loved her in Europe, and the weakest reviews for FTBC mostly came from there. I’m pretty sure Bob will end up in the top five aggregated lists. A lot of American publications are gonna leave him out of their top ten. But he’ll also probably make enough.

    If Rina doesn’t get plenty of love from the European publications she may struggle to end up in the top 20 of the aggregated lists. That will be fairly odd for an album that will likely be in the top ten scores on MC and AOTY and an album that’s gotten a good amount of social media love.

    Since for these critics November and December don’t exist they should include late November/December releases from the previous year (2019)

    Imagine when something highly acclaimed comes in December like when BEYONCÉ was released in mid-December of 2013

    A lot of publications counted BEYONCE on their lists the following year. Some lists released in late December and in January shoehorned her in. But a lot of publications, especially Brit based, be desperate to get their lists out first. I guess that’s because they know the American based publications will get more attention.

    MOJO and Uncut usually ahead of other publications since they have early access to new music sometimes months prior to official release. Unless we are talking about surprise releases.

    For you consideration :

    Album of the year : folklore
    Record of the year : Don't Start Now
    Song of the year : cardigan
    Best new artist : Phoebe Bridgers
