In an attempt to get a 'best of' list organised, I went back and looked at the albums that I’d liked this year – liked well enough to purchase immediately or to put on a ‘to purchase’ list (which up until now has all been in my head, but which will now be transferred to a much more reliable database!! Blush ). I expected there to be fewer so was quite surprised - sure there are some I've missed as well.

I also did a little exercise for interest’s sake and discovered that MH has posted no less than 280 new album listens this year – so far - how on earth is that even possible???!!! CH has done 111, not that it’s a competition or anything – just saying ... I confess to only listening to albums that there’s a good chance I’ll enjoy while blithely ignoring the rest. Jeez you guys – don’t know how you do it, especially the ©rap ones. 

My eclectic Top 21 for the year, lol! In no particular order (and with links to MD reviews by whoever did ‘em) … and a track I like (where possible, or plausible) for good measure …
