Music Charts

Top 30 Albums of 2019 (as of 08/12/2019)

I've limited this year's chart to a top 30, as I didn't want to include a load of albums that were just 'okay.' As always, these are my personal favourite albums of the year, as things currently stand, so if you're wondering 'hey, where's this brilliant album that I love?', it's either passed me by, or it's just not my kinda thing. If you think it might have passed me by and that it would fit with my general tastes, feel free to recommend it to me - I'm always happy to discover new musical awesomeness.

I will also be doing an End Of Decade chart (a Top 100), which I'll be posting next weekend, so stay tuned for that.

1. Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

There's not a huge amount between the top 4 albums, to be honest - I like them all in different ways and any could have been number 1 - but this is the album that stood out the most; that took me by surprise; that really impressed me with its individuality. I discovered Billie via the October 2017 Indie/Rock Playlist (which has a whole load of great songs on it, by the way). It's rare that such discoveries end up becoming as well known as Billie has, but it's definitely deserved. Here's my current favourite track on the album:
