My Top 25 Albums of 2020
My Top 25 Albums of 2020
Didn't want to spend too much time on this so I tried to be brief with the descriptions.
Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, 9th Wonder, & Kamasi Was
It's exactly what I expected from such an amazing group of musicians.
Boldy James and The Alchemist
The Price Of Tea In China
I like this album just a bit more than Manger on McNichols. Boldy James released so much stuff this year and all of it was pretty good.
The Golden Days are Hard
I love that album cover.
First album I hear from them but it absolutely slaps.
Healing Inside Outside Every Side
It's a Buckethead album.
Still haven't decided if I like this more than The Dreaming I.
Fairly standard vaporwave album but it has a specific vibe that just really stuck with me.
Spirit World Field Guide
Like most of his albums it might end up growing on me a bit more.
Caspian has yet to put out a bad album.
I hear some more post-rock influences here than on their past stuff and I love it.
We Will Always Love You
The shorter song legths made this one work for me. They know when to cut a song short and move on to the next one.
The Ascent is such a good song.
Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum
Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine
This could have been a bit shorter.
The Fallen Crimson
Wasn't a huge fan of their last album but they really delivered this year.
This one was a rough listen but in the best way possible.
Samsara Blues Experiment
End of Forever
Feels very cohesive and focused compared to the rest of their discography.
Very different from her other stuff but I love it just as much.
The All Is One
I've had mixed feelings about some of the other stuff I've heard from them in the past so I was hesitant to check this one out. I think it might be time to revisit their discog and see if I change my mind cause I loved this thing.
Attack of the Future Shocked, Flesh Covered, Meatb
His flow can get a bit repetitive at times, but the beats, lyrics, and the aggressive delivery more than make up for it.
It's Boris. It's good.
This album feels super comforting to listen to. It's bittersweet knowing it's probably the last official release we'll get from him, but it also has this big sense of closure for me.
The Suns of Perdition - Chapter II
Still haven't listened to Chapter I but this one is great.
Run the Jewels
Didn't like ooh la la as a single so I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this album. Ended up liking it more than RTJ2.
Stare Into Death and Be Still
By the time December started I thought it was too late in the year for anything to top this one. Glad I waited before doing this list.
Program Music III
This one caught me off guard. I've enjoyed all his stuff but I didn't expect this to be almost as good as Program Music I.
