Music is probably the one field of entertainment that is never lacking in quality content for the early months of a new year, and January 2020 was no exception. Welcome to the first full year of Sputnikmusic’s ‘Album of the Month’; a feature that lets everyone express what their favourite album of the month is. […]

For all the claims of famine for important releases in November, it hasn’t stopped this month’s vote from being a ferocious bottleneck of runners reaching out for the top spot.

After the votes are in […]
