Wet Leg, "Wet Leg"
The band Wet Leg's self-titled debut comes in at ninth place on the list. This infectious collection of edgy tunes with sassy lyrics could be underdogs at next year's Grammys, where they are nominated against established acts like Björk and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Taylor Swift, "Midnights"
Taylor Swift's tenth album, "Midnights," documents her autobiographical lyrics about 13 sleepless nights and takes eighth place on the list. The album is considered a cross between her albums "1989" and "Reputation" and showcases Swift's signature magical songwriting.

Zach Bryan, "American Heartbreak"
Zach Bryan's debut album, "American Heartbreak," takes sixth place on the list.
This collection of songs about losing his mother and finding sobriety is considered a true work of art and has managed to capture and hold people's attention despite being released on a major label.
Singer Rosalía's album "Motomami" takes fifth place on the list.
The experimental song "Motomami" is a fusion of different musical genres, including flamenco, hip-hop, reggaeton, and bachata, and the album also features collaborations with top musicians like The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams.
The 1975, "Being funny in a foreign language"
The 1975's album "Being funny in a foreign language" comes in at fourth place on the list. Singer Matt Healy's endearing charm has made him popular on social media, and the band's latest album is considered to be just as enigmatic and charming.

Finally, in the top spot is Beyoncé's "Renaissance," a critically acclaimed album that lets the music speak for itself and includes the popular song "Cuff it."
