Best of the Best

Every year since 1986, fRoots magazine has asked a large international panel of experts – over 300 in recent times – to nominate the album of the year.

After we announced the results of our 30th annual fRoots Critics Poll for Albums Of The Year in December we invited the public to vote online for their one favourite album out of all the winners and runners up in every year’s Critics Poll since it began in 1986, 120 albums in all.

And after a massive entry the Best Of The Best placings were:
