I’ve reviewed 23 albums on this blog in 2020, and probably listened to just as many that I didn’t feel compelled to write about. From this list I’ve selected five of my favorite albums that I recommend you give a listen.
Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Everyone liked this album and with good reason.
The Ballroom Thieves – Unlovely
The Boston-based trio released one of many albums that speaks to our time, on both the levels of personal relationships and social movements.
Mourning [A] BLKstar – The Cycle
I am unable to rank my favorite albums, but this is most likely contender for my #1 album of the year, and also the most important.
Run the Jewels – RTJ4
“Speaking to our times” is the theme of this years list and no one does it better than Killer Mike and El-P.
Sault – Untitled (Rise)
We may not know who Sault is, but the British collective released not one but two of the great albums of 2020.
