Favorite Icon, Full size
This was a record year (pun intended!) in so many ways, including the number of albums I reviewed - 149! Out of those, I found it impossible to single one out as Album of the Year, so I won't. I have listed them in the order that I reviewed them. There is some incredible music here, so check 'em out if you haven't already! Congratulations to all of these artists! There are many others that are very worthy of the list, but I had to cut it off somewhere. Keep making wonderful music!
