The DIS 2020 album of the year polling thread.

Here we go again. Usual deal, in this thread please provide your top 5 albums of 2020 in the following format:

  1. Name of artist who released your favourite album of 2020: Name of album.

  3. Etc
  4. And so on
  5. Name of artist who released your 5th favourite album of 2020: Name of album

Please only provide it in this format, and I’ll only use the first contribution provided (anything else makes my life difficult). I’ll keep this thread open until at the earliest the first weekend of January (2nd/3rd) so plenty of time to wait until you have the perfect list.

And any discussion of your lists to go in the DIScussion thread to keep this one unclogged:
