Year-End Charts

The Best!Our Year-End Charts provide a great entry point to the site, and become a talking point for fans.  Every year, our staffers vote in eight categories, and their votes are tabulated using the Billboard system (10 points for #1, 9 for #2, and so on).  The same system is used for our overall Top 20.  Nayt Keane and Richard Allen tag team on the Best Album Covers feature, while Richard offers a series of personal lists, including perennial favorites The Happiest Music of the Year and Best Winter Music.

Now we’ve collected all of our year-end charts on one handy page for visitors to enjoy all year long!
