Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 2019 - The Finals!

Thanks, Brad! For the first time in AM history one of my nominations has won a tournament. Of course I knew the album is well regarded, but I didn't expect it to win. There were a lot of interesting discoveries too.

Grimes - Art Angels

Grimes would be a great winner. She combines modern electronic sounds and dance beats with artistic ideas and an eccentric style.

It's funny to see these great instrumentals in completely different genres come up: Mike Oldfield, Thelonious Monk, Candy Dulfer etc. all in the same list. A lot of good music to discover here.
