Just like every year I’ve enjoyed tons of amazing albums this year that were suggested by the Music Board community, something I’ve been especially grateful for during lockdowns and furlough. I would love some more to get me through the winter if people have them. As always the weekly release threads and monthly voting threads are goldmines for recommendations, but I thought we could also use this thread to look back over 2020* so that people can discover and fall in love with albums they might have missed or dismissed at the time of release.
So show us your favourite albums of the year 2020 (so far) and tell us why you love them. Descriptions of genre/style are always welcome, as are video/spotify/apple music links to the whole album or good entry point tracks.
(And whilst we’re doing it why don’t we have polls for a score out of 10 so that we can get an idea of which ones DiS as a collective digs (but not take any scores too personally))
*Yes, it’s November. But I’m hoping that this way we can enjoy as many albums from the past 10 months as people want to post without having to rush through them all in December. And we can keep adding more great stuff released between now and the end of the year
