Last time I wrote up one of these Favourite Albums posts, it was the end of 2017, which I deemed a “clusterfuck” in all kinds of ways except musically. Do you remember that year when everyone famous died left right and centre? Well, hold my viral beer said 2020 and here we are with our backs on a difficult year for most and the hope for better days ahead. But we’re here to talk music.
Woah, is this year over yet? What a clusterfuck this year has seemed, at times. And, though little will suddenly change as a new day and year dawn, I remain hopeful and look ahead with open eyes and heart. If one thing helped me survive 2017, that’s music. Great new albums this year from many of my favourite artists, and some beautiful, heart-warming, and surreal concerts. Looking back at that makes me very happy.
