Re: Albums of 2020 Discussion Thread

I never listened to the leaks of Miss Anthropocene, but I did listen to it this morning. My initial reaction is that while it's not at the same level as Art Angels, it's pretty good, and I could like to a 30 minute version of "IDORU" and still love it.

If it's counted as 1970 I should revise my list.
Discogs has the earliest release as 1970. I've been counting it as 1970 myself.
