Re: Albums of 2020 Discussion Thread

Now listening to my first new album of 2020 and a likely high-placing contender in my EOY, the leak of Soccer Mommy's Color Theory. The single "yellow is the color of her eyes" was my number one song of 2019 and all of the other tracks have impressed me so far. A talent far above her years.

Some hall of famers with barely any votes in the 2019 songs poll are: "Now I'm in It" by HAIM "i'm not where you are" by Marika Hackman "Death Stranding" by Chvrches "Lov...

Cave is just an artist that does so much better in Europe than he does stateside. I also find many European publications have a bit of a contrarian streak, which is why it's funny they picked Push the Sky Away, which is a well-regarded album, but not as acclaimed as either of its two follow-ups.
