Best Albums of 2019

The Top Ten Best Albums of 2019

1 Igor - Tyler, the Creator

I bet Tool's new album will be #1 as soon as it drops. I bet good money. If I lose my bet (that in the end, Tool will be #1), I will make a list called "Why albums suck and Pet Sounds is the worst album of all time." - JoLeKosovo

Definitely an unexpected album from Tyler but damn fantastic and shows how much he's evolved as an artist - Mcgillacuddy

Amazing album, Tyler clearly shows how much he's developed as an artist. 10/10 - AlphaQ

Igor continues the winning streak that Flower Boy started and by golly is it an amazing listen

2 When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish

This caught me off guard. actually a pretty good album - winterbreeze

Wow, supriselingly good

Trash album.

I wasn't a big fan of her 2017 EP. But this album is just amazing! - Mesel

3 We are Not Your Kind - Slipknot

This, after release, hasn't disappointed at all. The multiple songs, Nero Forte, the icon of the album, shine through as unique. The sound and the vocals have gotten even better than before, and this album also mixes experimentation in the lot in a great manner. The songs can show to be really heavy, as Solway Firth, Red Flag, Nero Forte have shown. They can also be emotional, and sometimes plain scary with My Pain. I couldn't have asked for more with this.

One more week left till its release and I bet my balls this won't disappoint...#bing

#21? It hasn't even been released yet! - JoLeKosovo

By far the best of the year - unknown-soldier

4 Fear Inoculum - Tool

The new sound of tool is amazing, all the riffs in 7empest to maynards vocals in culling voices. We have waited 13 years for this album and it was worth it. Best album of 2019

This it by FAR the #1 album of the year best of the decade by far, nothing comes close to this masterpiece!

Definitely no1 this is the best album this decade, WANYK should be second, all the rest suck.

A lot of these albums do not suck. Igor is definitely one of the best of the year. - MasonOcker

Fantastic album

5 Thank U, Next - Ariana Grande

This is the best album I've ever heard in my my whole life. It is a literal masterpiece. It captures this really heartbreaking and tough time in Ariana's life... at the time she was dealing with so much past trauma, current trauma, intense emotions and pain... a lot was happening to her.
And then when all this was happening her best friends flew in to support her and they wrote an album in 2 weeks.
It doesn't sound like some lame last minute trash... it is a masterpiece. She literally paints a picture and captures the perfect moment of everything that was going on in EVERY SINGLE SONG. Every song describes some emotion or memory that she has to deal with, and how it hurt her so much. You can't listen to her album front to back without feeling like you're watching the most heartbreaking yet most inspiring movie ever... yet it is through her eyes. It is so beautiful.

The beats are great, the vocals are beautiful emotional, impressive... but the lyrics are jaw-dropping and ...more - ReeseLovesGrande

Also I love how the "worst" song of the the year (7 Rings) is on one of the "best" albums of the year. - Powell

It is interesting that there is more pop on this list than the best songs of the year list when usually people think of pop as a singles genre. - Powell

I find it to be much superior to "sweetener", next to "Dangerous Woman" it's her best work. Maybe my 2 star rating on "sweetener" was too harsh - 3 stars would have been fine as it was not dramatically bad but lacking the exciting musical enjoyment of her past records. Now "thank u next" has both the maturity of her previous album plus the poppiness of her 2016 work combined, making it insanely catchy but intelligent on top. - Martin_Canine

6 Hexed - Children of Bodom

Great album. My favorite metal album so far. List - Best Songs On Children of Bodom's Hexed - Metal_Treasure

Make metal great again

Very very VERY Underrated - DarkDamien

7 Distance Over Time - Dream Theater

Terrible album guys. They are just recycling their older songs. They are way past their prime and there is no sense of creativity left within the band.

A true return to form following the mixed bag that was The Astonishing, Distance Over Time is a masterpiece of an album. - CaptDeadeye

I want to listen to Dream Theater soon. - DarkBoi-X

UNBELIEVEBLE! I AM SHOCKED... I really wasn't expected an album too...powerful, meaty, tight, energic, inspired, enjoyable, balanced. Their come back!

8 Lightning Language - K-Rino

I don't like the production here much, everything else is pretty good though. 7/10 - AlphaQ

Yeah, you can't go wrong with K-Rino when it comes to lyrics. The production might not be for everybody, but hip hop is more than just catchy songs and banging beats... - DaWyteNight

Rino still dropping better music in 2019 than most new gen rappers

9 Zuu - Denzel Curry

Really solid album from Denzel Curry, better than Taboo which is another amazing album. - AlphaQ

This was disappointing... - DaWyteNight

10 Norman F****** Rockwell - Lana Del Rey

Deserved a Grammy, she was robbed.

For a pop album, this blew me away! This is Lana at her best! - slipperyjack30

If you weren't mine I'd be jealous of your love

I have sex with this album everyday.. its amazing

The Newcomers

? The Great War - Sabaton
? Anathema - Desecravity

The Contenders

11 Grey Area - Little Simz

This album is 35 minutes of wonderful bars, beats and melody. Hip hop at it's finest. - crowdiegal

Female Kendrick Lamar deserves a listen and a top 10 position.

12 Moonglow - Avantasia

An amazing piece of work from Tobias Sammet. Shows he is still a master at creating great melodies and instrumentals.

A very good non-extreme metal album. If interested, go to the list Best Songs On Avantasia's Moonglow - Metal_Treasure

13 Malibu Ken - Aesop Rock, Malibu Ken, and Tobacco

To the horrible production, the creepy robot vocals, and Aesop's Rocks great big vocabulary and the fact that not much of what he says in this album even matters. It's really a disaster. 2/10 - MemeTheKeem

14 Rammstein - Rammstein

One of the most anticipated albums of 2019 and it happened to be very good - Metal_Treasure

15 The First Glass Beach Album - Glass Beach

This album is great. A mix of New Wave, Jazz and even a bit of Emo(I hate most emo music but older emo is ok I guess). Quite underrated. - DarkBoi-X

16 Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery - The Comet is Coming
17 The Nothing - Korn

Should be in the top 10. Great album. - Userguy44

18 Big Baller Paradise - Big Baller B

Get this off the list lol - DaWyteNight

Greatest album of the year. hands down

GOAT - itsyamanpizzacan

19 1000 Gecs - 100 Gecs

Cringe culture is dead and we all know it thanks to this album - LeftistLasagna

20 Empath - Devin Townsend

A very very good album. - Metal_Treasure

21 It's a Whimsical Afterlife - Avenade

Easily one of the greatest things to be released this year

22 Amo - Bring Me the Horizon
23 Titanic Rising - Weyes Blood

One of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Perfect mix of chamber pop, 70s influences, and modern day experimental alternative music. Give it a listen.

Ethereal Album.

Number 1 2019 Album on RateYourMusic!

24 Hiding Places - Billy Woods & Kenny Segal
25 Anima - Thom Yorke

I honestly don't understand why people don't like this. Anima is a true work of art, comparable to Radiohead's earlier masterpieces. It also proves that electronic music can be made to make great art rather than just dance music.

26 Good Faith - Madeon

I've been waiting for this album for far too long, but it was SO WORTH IT. THIS THING IS A MASTERPIECE. Easily my album of the year, and one of the best electronica records I've listened to in ages. Madeon is so incredibly talented, and his music inspires me to create in a way that no other artist has. - Atham

27 The Wings of War - Overkill

So far I feel like it's the strongest metal album this year, in terms of consistency and content. A good 50 minutes or so of thrash is all I need to be happy, really. Welcome to the Garden State is definitely a highlight, and overall I can't not enjoy this album. Overkill is still going strong. - TheRock222

28 American Football - American Football
29 Ginger - Brockhampton
30 III - Banks

My favorite album of the year, has a real the Weeknd vibe. Song highlights include Gimme, Look What You're Doing To Me, and Contaminated. - Y2K

31 Mordial - Car Bomb

Another evolution in their sound and man is it good. The production is great and the weird experiments they do is so cool. So far my metal aoty for sure. - cjWriter1997

32 Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne

Who honestly cares about some punk girls? - AlphaQ

33 Revelations of Oblivion - Possessed

A come back album by the pioneers of death metal after 33 years of silence! - Metal_Treasure

34 Purple Mountains - Purple Mountains
35 Hollywood’s Bleeding - Post Malone

Best album of 2019 hands down

36 [usa] - Anamanaguchi
37 Free Spirit - Khalid
38 She Is Coming - Miley Cyrus

This is terrible - ElSherlock

No, this is a mess. - AlphaQ

This is good

39 Happiness Begins - Jonas Brothers
40 Bandana - Freddie Gibbs & Madlib

I am not feeling Freddie's rapping or the production on this album. Sorry not sorry - DaWyteNight

41 Charli - Charli XCX
42 Caligula - Lingua Ignota

Metalheads, listen to this, one of the best albums of the decade nevermind year In my opinion - LeftistLasagna

43 Madame X - Madonna

This album is a true masterpiece and should definitely be in top 10 for the year! It reached #1 on the Billboard 200 for Crying out loud! - Bigpickleman

Deserves to be WAY higher than it actually is. This album is influenced by many latin cultures and languages, including Spanish and Portugese. The collabs come together pretty well and doesn't sound out of place at all. The sound of this album is very diverse as well. Like Dark Ballet and God Control are perfect examples of how she can trick you with a sad piano ballad to just go into a whole nother song. The most important thing about this record though: the messages. Madonna talks about the struggles of minorities, gun control, the Batukas from Africa (group of talented women who play music), the lgbtq+ community and many, many more. I understand she will get past at because she's now in her 60s, but still- give her and this phenomenal record a chance. I'm positive you won't regret it. - Worksponge

44 Everywhere at the End of Time - The Caretaker
45 May the Lord Watch - Little Brother
46 Lil Wyte - Lil Wyte

Love this album! This is what a rap album should be, not like most albums that come out nowadays where it's hard to tell if it's an album or just a retail mixtape. - DaWyteNight

47 The Things We Can't Stop - Cold
48 Serotonin II - Yeule
49 Lil Big Man - Maxo

I have no idea who this is but from the samples on iTunes it made me wanna check it out. The only "Maxo" I've heard of is Maxo Kream. - DaWyteNight

50 Ascend - Illenium
