Re: EOY 2020 Albums List Updates

Feel a bit bad for The Chicks - first new album in years, they abruptly change their name to avoid getting dragged on social media, and they still barely scrape the top 50 in US lists.

Re: EOY 2020 Albums List Updates

Both Fetch the Bolt Cutters and RTJ4 are heavily political and make up 2/3 of the current top 3, and the big surprise this year is the two Sault albums which are also rather political, so I don't understand the implication they're being hypocritical. You're right of course, and I didn't mean to imp...

Sault have been talked up quite a bit in the UK in recent months especially as their music has chimed in with the protests of summer 2020, I think their anonymity (though apparently the people involved are listed on the discogs page)/reclusive nature is why their profile isn't bigger.
