Favorite 2019 LPs

2019 hasn't been a stellar year music-wise for me. There were many good albums released, but very few outstanding ones. The list is comprised of LPs I have listened multiple times and enjoyed them. There were many I rarely returned to if at all, so I excluded those. I hope 2020 will be a better year.
1Jambinai
ONDA


Really atmospheric music, I love the album. Catch them live, because it's worth it
2Opeth
In Cauda Venenum


Beautiful, heartfelt record. They tried some new things as well and it clicked.
3Motorpsycho
The Crucible


Really good prog rock album that doesn't overstay its welcome.
4Yawning Man
Macedonian Lines


Sweet, short and relaxing record.
5Mark Lanegan
Somebody's Knocking


Less somber overall, Mark successfully ventures into electronic territory.
6My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
In the House of Strange Affairs


Don't know why people dislike it so much on Sputnik, but these guys are still great.
7Tim Bowness
Flowers At The Scene


Tim branches out and Steven Wilson's magic touch makes things better. The two have great chemistry.
