Must Hear Albums (User Score Edition) [Archived as of 3/29/22]

There’s now a feature for user score must hears, so this list is now irrelevant. I’m not sure to what extent this list made that feature possible, but after around a year of keeping this list up-to-date and many users wanting this feature, it finally happened. If you’re reading this Rob, thank you for this great addition to the site!

I won’t be deleting this list, but I will be archiving it instead because I put a lot of effort into it, and I’m glad many people were able to use this as a resource!

i thought you were over-exaggerating when you said "reviews every album possibly"

only 12 albums with 15+ critic scores have a red score

Someone should make this into a chrome extension that shows a star symbol like the critic’s must hear
