Favourite Albums 2020

My musical listening during 2020 has been somewhat haphazard, mainly because of circumstances (coronavirus, retirement, young children, and moving to a new house) as well as a desire to listen to comforting old and established favourites.

Similarly, my choices this year reflect the unique nature of 2020. a year unlike any other for all of us. Indeed, many are comforting, meditative, and reflective.

This year I’m going to be doing things a little differently, I’ll post my favourite albums of the year individually between now and the end of the year. I’ll choose my top album(s) in the last week of December.

It’s obvious, of course, that I can never listen to all the albums released each year, but I’ve listened to less than my usual in 2020.
