    Where is Black mountain?
    Jason Collett?
    Daniel Romano?
    Freakwater?
    Waco Brothers?
    Flat Five?
    John Prine?
    Steven Wilson?

    No room for write-ins.
    Voted Bowie - the only one from the list that deserved placement.

    Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker.

    Just because it perfectly sums up 2016 for me. (Though I voted for Blackstar on the Mojo poll.)

    Just one? "Blackstar" That's unfair but it's Bowies final album so I don't really have a choice.

    Sad as it is that this is his last, that doesn't make it the best album of the year. Could say the same for You Want it Darker.

    This forum is clearly a huge Bowie crowd and that will far and away be the most popular choice. My vote is for the Truckers, socially relevant, poignant and rocking.

    Wow I have 7 on Uncut 8 on Mojo (not sure if I have more than 8 2016 albums, so a nice draw from me)

    Those I own are as follows (in ranked order)
    1. Iggy Pop - post pop depression
    2. David Bowie Black Star
    3. Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
    4. Nick Cave - skeleton tree
    5. Bob iver - 22 A Million
    6. Leonard Cohen - you want it darker
    7. Pj Harvey- hope six (very disappointed)
    8. Dylan - Fallen Angels - fine but not best of year category I do prefer to PJ's latest, but this both isn't as good as shadows nor as original (were it not for Dylan it wouldn't sniff a best of yr list and I love Dylan)

    I'm surprised how high up Teenage Fanclub is coming in these two lists. It's a decent album but it's not their best.

    But it's almost the same, at least the top 25, isn't it? Maybe some of the rankings are a little different, but that is always arbitrary in my mind. Regardless, both are fine lists for their demographic, and I think it's been an amazing year for new music, even if a lot of my favorite albums aren't shown here.

    Really? Solange is on there but Esperanza Spalding isn't? She's definitely my favorite album of the year (so far).

    Also, no De la Soul? Tribe? Maxwell? Typical list of the same old artists. Doesn't Uncut and Rolling Stone get tired putting the same people on their lists year after year?

    Good albums missing from this list imo are:

    Weezer - (white album)
    Anthrax - For All Kings
    Alejandro Escovado - Burn Something Beautiful

    True, Mojo and Uncut are basically overlapping magazines, but I "feel" a bit more for the order of Uncut's list. Radiohead is a worthy #2 and I'm not really a fan of Michael Kiwanuka.

    Uncut generally hate metal. I particularly remember them rating Motorhead's Overkill album as 2/5 when it was reissued. :realmad::realmad:o_O:shake:

    There are metal magazines, but Uncut isn't one of them. So yes, they avoid the genre.

    Fair enough of course, and I love and barely miss an issue of Uncut. A lot of my music taste is very in line with what Uncut cover, even if it does go over the top on Americana. But just don't review the albums then, instead of slagging off highly influential and respected albums from a genre they don't regard and actively avoid. After all, I don't see Gene Clark reissues reviewed in Kerrang.
