My Top 5 Albums of 2020

Recommended Posts

1. Lady Gaga-Chromatica

The rollout for this album was messy and it was released at a horrible time, but Chromatica was the escape we needed in 2020. Gaga gave us her best album with this one. There are no complete duds, and the best songs are career highlights.

Top 5: Replay, 911, Rain on Me, Alice, Plastic Doll

2. Taylor Swift-folklore

Taylor was the last artist I expected a surprise album from, but she gave us an amazing one. Her storytelling is better than ever here, and she switched musical styles while keeping true to herself. This is a masterpiece that will only get better with age.

Top 5: august, betty, the last great american dynasty, exile, illicit affairs

3. Dua Lipa-Future Nostalgia

Dua didn't grab me when she first came onto the scene. However, Don't Start Now was my favorite single of 2019 and the lead-up to her sophomore effort was promising. Fortunately she didn't disappoint. An excellent collection of pop songs that are simultaneously retro and modern.

Top 5: Don't Start Now, Levitating, Hallucinate, Break My Heart, Physical

4. Taylor Swift-evermore

Taylor did it again. While it's not quite as good as folklore, this is another excellent collection of songs that is continuing to get better with each listen. Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff are perfect collaborators for Taylor.

Top 5: no body, no crime, willow, tolerate it, coney island, long story short

5. Kylie Minogue-DISCO

I didn't have high hopes for this album because I was underwhelmed by the first two singles. I listened after hearing Real Groove on Studio 2054, and I found out that Kylie gave us her best album since Aphrodite.

Top 5: Real Groove, Miss a Thing, Dance Floor Darling, Supernova, Where Does the DJ Go?

Honorable Mentions

Miley Cyrus - Plastic Hearts.png

I've never been a huge Miley fan, but she impressed me with her new direction and image. It's not quite a classic, but a huge step in the right direction.

Top 3: Prisoner, Night Crawling, Midnight Sky

The Weeknd-After Hours

A strong concept album that was unfairly snubbed by the Grammys. I wish there was a bit more sonic variety, but this is still a winner.

Top 3: Blinding Lights, In Your Eyes, Alone Again
