Very strong year for me personally and I’ve had to leave out about 5 or 6 that would have got into my top 10 most years.

Locking bands away and stopping them touring for 18 months certainly increased the quality of output this year. Would still rather they were able to play live though obviously.

10. Mogwai - As The Love Continues

Black Country, New Road have been my AOTY pretty much since I discovered them in February. It's no secret I think they're great and I'm looking forward to their new record in Feb 2022. I've racked up over 150 plays of the track Sunglasses in the past year and it's the most excited I've felt about a band ever.

Not seen much love for the Injury Reserve or the Black Midi albums on here, although they're doing pretty well on other music boards.

Maybe a slightly controversial opinion on here, but I thought the Wolf Alice album was consistently pretty good rather than having many stand out tracks. Not really any I'd really put in a SOTY list (though Last Man On Earth is great), but none that I can criticise really for being a weak point on the album.

Great EPs from NewDad and The Lounge Society, also enjoyed the Yard Act one for what it was.
