Links for these lists have been submitted weeks ago yet none of them get approved and counted for the aggregate. I don't know why admin ignored them, no offense here it's just my curiosity

- Chorus.fm (previously known as Absolute Punk)
- Evening Standard
- Good Morning America
- Insider
- Mercury News
- Mixmag
- The New Yorker: Amanda Petrusich
- Refinery29
- Rolling Stone (Rob Sheffield)

Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die should have 33 points, The Wild Honey Pie points were not counted despite the album being 19th on that list, I don’t see why not count it since the Born To Die: Paradise Edition is just an extended version of the same album

Mandatory’s list?

Are you guys not adding anymore? Where’s Mandatory list?

Chorus.fm definitely should be included since they were previously known as AbsolutePunk, a credible critic site that once counted for Metacritic before. The list involved 10 contributors/staff which is worth for consideration.

Why Genius list is not part of the aggregate?
1y
So when an unranked list gets added to the aggregate, all albums receive a single point, which makes sense, somewhat. But in a list that’s a top 10 (New York Post, 2018, for example), shouldn’t each album get 5 points, since a top 10 gets you 5 in a ranked list? Similarly, an unranked top 25 would net everyone 3 points. Just a thought.

Vulnicura should have 8 points now. Not 7
