are probably a lot of people you’d expect me to have in my top 20,
like John Moreland and American Aquarium. While those artists made
huge strides in pushing their own boundaries, they just didn’t make
as much of an emotional impact on me as the albums featured here.
For me, top albums need to both push boundaries AND make me FEEL
SOMETHING. These are the 20 albums this year that made my heart
skip a beat.
