It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. Yet even in the bleakest moments of this past year when the world went into forced hibernation, new music never stopped being a vital life force for good.
To those artists who continued to release albums and songs during a worldwide pandemic I am eternally in your debt. The depth of support that music has given me during such a tumultuous year can never be overstated.
In terms of blogging I have found it difficult at times and that makes me even more grateful for every artist, fan, label, PR person and fellow blogger who has read or shared my writing this year. It means the world to be even a small part of the conversation.
Below you will find a list of the top twenty most read reviews on my site this year – many of these views have come directly from search engine hits which shows that blogging still spreads the word beyond the confines of social media.
Please click the links to read my original reviews and find out more about the incredible albums listed below. My full end of year ranked favourites lists will be published next week so stay tuned for that!
