De Album top 25 was een jaarlijks terugkerend onderdeel van het KRO-radioprogramma American Connection. Aan het eind van het jaar konden luisteraars een top 5 insturen van dat jaar verschenen albums. Volgens een puntenwaardering (nummer 1 krijgt 5 punten, nummer 5 krijgt 1 punt) werd op basis van die lijstjes een top 25 opgesteld. De top 25 werd aan het eind van het jaar (verdeeld over twee uitzenduren) uitgezonden.
