Favorite 2020 LPs

Not the best year for me in terms of music releases, however, I found some awesome new artists and many others released solid albums. Fewer LPs blew me away compared to previous years though. The biggest revelation for me this year was discovering Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry. The first 25 were carefully arranged for the staff top, the next 25 are records I listened to multiple time and still have them in rotation. From 50 onwards are releases that are good/worth spending your time on them IMO.
1Two People
Second Body


Love this album, spent a lot of time listening to it.
2Motorpsycho
The All Is One


One of their best albums and easy to sit through its' 85-minute length.
3Moby
All Visible Objects


I enjoy his albums no matter what the direction is. Also read his two memoirs, they are very nicely and honestly written.
4Marilyn Manson
We Are Chaos


Was skeptical at first about it, but this grew on me a lot. It's a beautiful surprise and I hope he does another LP with Shooter Jennings just to see how far can they go with their chemistry.
5Boris
NO


Boris delivers as always.
6Brant Bjork
Brant Bjork


Same with Brant, he always delivers the groove.
7The Atomic Bitchwax
Scorpio


Lots of fun.
8Paradise Lost
Obsidian


Lovely record.
9Intronaut
Fluid Existential Inversions


The production could have been better overall, but it's a strong album.
10Deftones
Ohms


This album is excellent, but I feel there is still room to grow on me. So far, I find Gore a bit more entertaining than this one, contrary to popular belief.

Although a live album, all the songs here are brand new and just as good as any of their stuff.
