Since 2007, The New Yorker music critic Alex Ross occasionally publishes new CD recommendations on his blog The Rest Is Noise. A complete list can be found on this official page. He also published a few recommendations on the now seemingly abandoned New Yorker blog Unquiet Thoughts.
Here's the Spotify playlist: Alex Ross: Recommended New CDs (58 tracks from 58 CDs) About 1/3 of his choices (some 40 titles) are not on Spotify yet, mainly due to the absence of the whole Hyperion label and many Harmonia Mundi recordings. Albums are sorted by publication dates, as in the official page. Press Ctrl (CMD)+G to browse in album view. I'll update the playlist when new recommendations are posted.
