Consequence of Sound:
The Top 100 Albums
The website describes this as “a definitive ranking voted and debated by our editors, staff writers, and contributors.” Then Michael Roffman, the President/Editor-in-Chief, offers up a long essay on the pros and cons of lists pretty much hitting on points which the reader already knows. The reader then has to click through multiple pages to see the full list (and comments on each album) so the full list is provided for you here on ONE page.
Also, check out annual picks for album of the year.
