Discogs User Ratings: 100 Best New Rock Releases Of 2018

2018 is almost over. While there are still a few days left for new Releases to emerge, and while it might take a few weeks for all the hot new stuff to make its way into people’s collections and be rated, we thought it was high time we shared the Discogs Community’s favourite Rock music of the year. We’ll update this list again in February to account for all the new music released between now and then.

When trying to use the ‘Average Rating’ to compare Release on Discogs there is always the problem of trying to balance the average against the number of ratings cast. Is a Release with a single rating of 5/5 (and therefore with an Average Rating of 5/5) really better than the Release with 99 Ratings of 5/5 and one 4/5 (and therefore with an Average Rating of 4.99)? Of course not.

We’ve used some fancy data science algorithms to balance for the fact that:

  • sometimes great music goes unnoticed for a while and doesn’t get so many ratings, but it’s still great
  • the first people to rate a Release often leave high ratings, so the average rating often decreases as more ratings come in.

The result is a ‘Weighted Rating’, which is much more reflective of a collective and evolving sense of ‘good music’. See the results for yourself. We ran our algorithm over every release tagged as ‘Rock’ and first released in 2018 (there are no re-issues or represses, and no compilations either). The following list is the top 100, ordered alphabetically by ‘Artist – Title’.

We’ve also run the algorithm over every new Electronic Release from 2018.

Happy Digging!
