Vote for the best rock album of the year so far

2019 has been a belter of a year for new rock albums... but what are the best so far

"Rock is dead!" bleat the naysayers. "No it isn't!", say those who are actually listening.

2019 may not have seen music from the Big Guns. The much-rumoured AC/DC album hasn't surfaced (we're betting on 2020, to tie-in with the 40th anniversary of Back In Black). Guns N' Roses haven't released anything. Neither have Aerosmith. Or Metallica. Or Iron Maiden. There's been nothing from Deep Purple, or Rainbow, or any number of bands who might have filled album-of-the-year polls in decades past.

We're getting used to this. The marquee names make their money out on the road, with a single night's gate receipts supplying a band like Metallica with the kind of income a successful album might take months to generate.

So we look towards new music. And for anyone open-minded enough to keep exploring, anyone still excited by the prospect of hearing something they haven't heard before, 2019 has seen a bumper crop.

Below, we've listed the albums released in 2019 that received a score of 7/10 or above in Classic Rock. We're not claiming it's a definitive list, by any means, but it's a good place to start and we've left a space at the bottom to fill in a choice of your own.

The 50 Best Rock Albums of 2019 (so far)

We asked you to vote for the rock albums of the year so far, and the results are very much in

"Rock is dead!" bleat the naysayers, probably because AC/DC or Aerosmith haven't released a new album. "No it isn't!", responds anyone who's actually listening.

We're used to this. The marquee names make their money out on the road, with a single night's gate receipts supplying a band like Metallica with the kind of income a successful album might take months to generate.

Instead, we look towards new music. And for anyone open-minded enough to keep exploring, anyone still excited by the prospect of hearing something they haven't heard before, 2019 has seen a bumper crop of releases.

So we asked you to choose your favourite albums of 2019 so far, the results are in, and we're delighted to see plenty of new music amongst some very familiar names.

Congratulations to all who who made the Final 50, and to those artists who created enough noise to leap unexpectedly into the reckoning. You know who you are, and we salute you.

And that album at the top of the list? Absolute landslide.
