I still have a bunch of albums I’ve been meaning to listen to but for now here’s my somewhat-but-not-really-ordered list.


#452

I edited it down to 15 because there were so many on my top 40 that I didn’t have really strong feelings about.

I also cheated and put Carla Morrison’s Amor Supremo Desnudo on there even though it came out in 2017. In my defense, I didn’t hear it until January of this year and have listened to at least one song from it every week since.

Cut it down to 25 to just include the stuff I really liked. It was a good year for games and music it turns out

Edit: also just wanted to shout out all the people in this thread for posting such good stuff btw. I would have never known about the Beths or Sudan Archives otherwise. You all have great taste and you’re doing important work


#454

Wow, I hadn’t heard anyone talk about Saba’s album, but I guess it is universally adored?


#455

It’s one of the most emotionally charged albums I heard this year. It’s heartbreaking and lonely and hard to listen to in a way really few rap albums are


#456

Lmao, I didn’t even notice it was on your lists until you said that! The cover is really dark, so it’s hard to see as a smaller thumbnail :joy:

CARE FOR ME is all killer, no filler! Each song is rich with impecable word play and flow, along with a wide range of emotions. I also think it’s sequenced really well. It feels like a cohesive whole in a way few albums do these days.


#457

This isn’t new but Sorry To Bother You finally came out in the UK this month and after seeing it (I loved it) I’ve been listening to a lot of The Coup (the director’s band, who did the soundtrack.)

I think it was a 2018 release? I’m not sure what the US release dates were.
