Albums of the Year 2021

In 2021 I have reviewed nearly forty albums and which have all connected with me on some personal level. Overall I have found this year tough as I have struggled to really love a lot of the albums released this year, compared with the last few years.

So for this end of year list I have tried to single out the fifteen albums which really stood out among the gloom, ones which have helped me in some way.

For the top spot I have gone with the criteria which I have used since I started this blog: most listened to solo female artist with the majority of songs on the album solo written. This choice has helped me single out the talent from a sea of quality offerings.

Please note that this list only includes albums I have reviewed so obviously I don’t include any male artists.

This list includes links to my original album reviews, rather than risk repeating myself. Happy new year and thanks for reading!

15.Emily Scott Robinson – American Siren

14.Dori Freeman – Ten Thousand Roses

13.Carly Pearce – 29 (Written in Stone)

12.Yola – Stand For Myself

11.Kacey Musgraves – Star-Crossed

10.Morgan Wade – Reckless

9.Aimee Mann – Queens of the Summer Hotel

8.Allison Russell – Outside Child
