Top 5 Album Drops of 2020
A very biased list of my favorite albums of 2020
This list isn’t based on what I listened to the most. That would look different. It’s what I consider the best albums of 2020, based on my music tastes right now.
My Top 5 albums of 2020
- The New Abnormal by The Strokes
- Women in Music Pt. III by HAIM
- Punisher by Phoebe Bridges
- Energy by Disclosure
- Limbo by Amine
- Rearrange Us by Mt. Joy
- Suddenly by Caribou
- After Hours by The Weeknd
- SuperGood by DuckWrth
- 1000 gecs by 100 gecs
- Pray for Paris by Westside Gunn
- Flamboyant by Dorian Electra
- What’s Your Pleasure? by Jessie Ware
- It Is What It Is by Thundercat
Spotify says I listened to 38,310 minutes or 638.5 hours or 26.6 full days of music, and that’s an underestimate. It doesn’t include the music I listen to on YouTube, NTS, or the radio.
My top genre is rap. My top 5 songs are the first 5 songs in my workout playlist, so that’s not very insightful. My top artist is Mac Miller, mostly because I listened to his posthumous album Circles after he passed away. Sadly, famous rappers passing away and then having their posthumous albums blow up was a theme this year… fitting for 2020. On a positive note, Travis Scott’s VR concert set was a completely new and creative music experience.
