Top 20 Albums of 2020

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

My Year in Music 2019

It’s time for  Spotify Wrapped! Every year I get overly exciting for a personalised playlist and stats about who I’ve been listening to this year, even though I already know because I’m the one doing the listening. Either way, this is a great old day to listen to all the tracks I know I’ve listened to a thousand times.

Every year I document my stats on my blog, more so for myself, but if you fancy a gander, you can find them all here: 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Top 10 Albums of 2017

Another year in music is over. Last year I recounted my top 10 albums of the year, and it’s time to do it all over again. This year’s list was very tough, it’s been an absolutely amazing year for all genres of music, so many artists have released such mind blowing pieces of work! Here are the 10 I’ve chosen as the best of the best.

This year I tried not to simply focus on my 10 favourites, but on 10 that I truly believe are the best, whether this is overall, or means a complete album with 0 filler, or an album that’s defining it’s genre, these are all something special.

 LordeMelodrama

Top Track: ‘Homemade Dynamite’

Whilst this list is in no order, Melodrama 100% cinches the top spot for me. Melodrama encapsulates heartbreak, late-teenage parties and the transition into ‘true’ adult life in a handful of unique and experimental tracks. From the thumping beats of ‘Green Light’ to the soft piano of ‘Liability’, and it’s reprise, Lorde proves that she’s a forced to be reckoned with. A 4 year wait between records is nothing if it results in anything half as good as Melodrama. Continue Reading →
