I'm not going to give a list (I don't think I'm qualified)

My "Album of the Year" is Spook the Herd by Lanterns on the Lake and track would be "Baddies" off that album.

I'm slightly shocked that it has only been mentioned once on here (it was Mercury nommed)

It's a beautiful album. Any normal year it would have made my top ten but there's been so many crackers this year, it didn't quite make the cut.

Oh hell yeah, there's no way you can cover everything that's available!

I stick by my list because I'm not going to dick Swedge around, but the late release of Moby's remix album did bugger me up a bit! 😂

That one completely passed me by as well. These end of year lists will keep me going throughout January. Luckily in a Twitter group they ask for a festive 21 so that means the ones I have left out of my Top 10 will get a look in!!

I think if I’d have had more time with it Evermore would have made my top 10.

The opening run of 4-5 tracks is about as good as it gets.
