Sound of 2019

As usual, I am late to the party with the list of my top albums and concerts in 2019. But here it is, better late then never. Plus, a good thing about being late is that I always manage to discover some additional great albums.

This year I went step forward and made a Spotify playlist with one song from each artist/album on the list below. But since the puzzle would not be completed without this, I also made playlists for all the previous years I published the list of top albums – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012. Hope you will enjoy it.

Have fun in 2020!
