    I never expected After Hours to do well in the year-end lists. I figured it’d be lucky to crack the aggregated top 20. Now, it looks like it’d be lucky to crack the 40. It already did fairly poor in the mid-year lists outside of the more “urban” leaning publications. And while it got overall solid reviews, there wasn’t much passion in those reviews.

    It was predicted for all those Grammy noms based off of “Blinding Lights” being the biggest single of year, the good sales for the album, the aggressive promoting and campaigning, the album being solidly reviewed and that The Weeknd has previously garnered major noms. It didn’t have much at all to do with acclaim.

    Taylor’s folklore is also appearing in one top 10 (DailyMail) and two top 20 lists (What Hi-Fi? & OOR), which would push its points to 37.

    But idk if all of these will be included on the aggregate list.

    A lot of these lists will not be counted on AOTY or MC.

    03. Phoebe Bridgers – Punisher
    02. Run the Jewels – RTJ4
    01. Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters

    Based on what I’ve seen so far it seems like these 3 albums could finish in the final top 3

    They should be. AOTY counts even People Magazine.

    I figured there was no way around Fiona, Run the Jewels and Phoebe being 1, 2 and 3. I figured Folklore was gonna be in a battle to get a top five spot (though there’s still plenty of counted lists to go).

    What’s Your Pleasure is underperforming. So is Set My Heart On Fire Immediately, but it’ll still likely land in the top 8.

    Looking at last year’s aggregate list, AOTY included like every random site that had a ranking, many of those weren’t even music-related in anyway. So there really isn’t a reason not to include those lists.

    Metacritic I think is a little more selective, but AOTY includes everyone on the face of earth.

    I think both sites will be slightly more selective this year. Neither site adds as many reviews as they used to. I’m thinking 100-120 lists will be counted for both. But there will still be some random inclusions and non-inclusions.
