A year has never gone by quicker than 2020, but simultaneously it’s been one of the longest, worst years ever.
However, it has been a year of bountiful music releases, a year for innovation in the industry and one to be remembered – and to be experienced later, when we finally see tours of 2020 albums in action.
The below are 20 of my favourite releases this year, 20 albums that really stood out to me this year, with a little bit of objectivity, and a hell of a lot of subjectivity.
Without further adieu, in no particular order: 2020’s Top 20 albums
The best version of a song isn’t always the ‘regular’ version. Take the first song in this list as an example, you always heard the Lana Del Rey x Cedric Gervais remix of ‘Summertime Sadness’ rather than the original! Both are great, that’s not to say I don’t love some Lana Del Rey on her own, I well and truly do.
Anyway, let’s get on with it! This list includes remixes, covers, acoustic versions, other performances, anything that isn’t the regular!
