List: Top Ten Albums of 2004 - collated list of music magazines from around the world

Date: January 2005

Source: Collated by Greg at Amy's Robot website

Base: All albums featuring in end-of-year top ten lists from 60 music magazines worldwide.

Notes: The complete list of albums and music magazines is available at the link shown above. The following is Greg's notes on how he compiled the list.

First I compiled 60 end-of-the-year top-10 lists. These were culled from major (and some minor) music magazines, webzines and newspapers, mostly from the States and Europe (specifically, I included 23 American lists, 10 British, 8 German, 5 Italian, 2 Dutch, 2 French, 2 Spanish, 2 Swedish, 1 Australian, 1 Canadian, 1 Croatian, 1 Mexican, 1 Norwegian and 1 Polish.) None of these lists were made by individual people (e.g. Christgau or blogsters); they were all tallied from editors/ publishers/ contributors polls conducted by each publication. Also, all had to be ranked lists (thus I didn't include AllMusic or Rolling Stone, though I did use them to settle ties.) Then I just awarded 1 point for each 10th place listing, 2 points for each 9th place listing, and so on up to 10 points for each 1st place listing.
