OT: Best Albums of 2020
Posted by: Bastion ()
Date: December 11, 2020 23:23

Well to say 'what a year' would be an understatement. I'm sure a lot of us were initially drawn to our comfort albums... but as the year has unfolded, there's been a very steady and wonderful stream of brilliant music released.

Let's say:

Top 10-20 in no order, with your Number #1 album...and a handful of mentions?

I'd like to see what everyone enjoyed this year. Let's go smiling smiley

Great choices Bastion! I especially love Nicolas Jaar's and Thundercat's new ones. My only concert this year was Nicolas Jaar at the Tones on the Stones festival where he played a beautiful piece together with a cellist.

One of my favorite albums this year would also have to be Gorillaz' Song Machine.

Really enjoying some of these albums, going through and bookmarking them all on Spotify. Tasteful selection.

Matt Berninger - Serpentine Prison

Great choices WorriedAboutYou.

I've only very recently (unashamedly) discovered The National, so have listened a couple of times to Matt Berninger's record. The title track was great for sure, so will be diving back in.

Lucinda Williams- Good Ghosts Better Angels tops my list.

Sticking with the Ghost theme, and while not an album, Living In A Ghost Town gets an honorable mention. Just listened to it on blast after not listening to it in a bit, and loved it.
Followed by Scarlet, these two make my top five individual songs of the year.

That sounds great. I've only seen Nico once - at Field Day a few years ago. He played a set in-between Nina Kraviz, Moderat, Jon Hopkins and Aphex Twin.

I imagine the shows we saw were wildly different!

Wonderful musician - and a new Darkside track released the other day! smoking smiley

I quite enjoyed that as well. Probably my favourite overall of all the deluxe releases...though PMS and all of Some Girls Deluxe pretty close.
