Hope you're all doing well! 2020 has been a very strange year for every single one of us.
One of the positives to come out of this year that's helped me get through is the really excellent music that has been released throughout. Some artists used lockdown as an oppurtunity to get creative!
Anyway, here is a list of my Top 10 favourite albums of 2020:
|10. Serpentine Prison by Matt Berninger|
The debut solo album from Matt of The National.
Not too disimilar from his work with The National but this appears to take more influence from some of the great singer-songwriters of the late 60's/early 70's (think Bob Dylan, Neil Young, etc).
Standout Tracks: Serpentine Prison, Loved So Little, One More Second
|9. Unfollow The Rules by Rufus Wainwright|
This is Rufus doing what he does best, writing beautifully crafted songs.
Reminds me stylistically of his 2007 'Release The Stars' album.
Standout Tracks: Peaceful Afternoon, Alone Time, Early Morning Madness
|8. How I'm Feeling Now by Charli XCX|
A totally unexpected lockdown album entirely created in just a few weeks!
One of Charli's more experimental (and personal) creations that also features some bangers!
Standout Tracks: I Finally Understand, Visions, Enemy
