12.17.21 50 Favorite Albums of 2021

50 Favorite Albums of 2021

This is NOT a straight top-to-bottom list. There was just too much outstanding music this last year, so I did things a little differently. I have 7 over-arching "genres" (term used liberally), each with a top 3 albums + 2 honorable mentions. One of the "genres" is a Wild Card, meaning these were definitely favorite albums, but for whatever reason didn't fit into the other genres. (Whatever - my list, my rules!) And lastly, I have 15 honorable mentions, spanning all genres, ordered alphabetically by band. There are at least a dozen albums that could be swapped around with albums here, or even added on, but I had to draw the line somewhere. So much good music in 2021! Would love to know your thoughts. Enjoy! Genres in Order - Death Metal - Doom / Sludge - Cores (Aggressive) - Cores (Heavy) - Prog - Black Metal - Wild Card
