Today I am going to tell you my top twenty albums of the year, but before I get to that I think it would be remiss of me to not mention the death of Lemmy Kilmister. There are going to be a thousand people writing a thousand words about Lemmy over the next few days. Most of whom are in a better place to do so than me. However, for my two pence, the man was rock and roll. Few have lived as fast and as loud as Lemmy and none of them have done it until the age of 70. His blend of punk rock attitude with rock and roll has been influential on everyone who likes to play loud and he will he be missed. In tribute today, I suggest you play your music a lot louder and live life just that little bit wilder. Anyway, on with the show.
Onto part two of my albums of the year countdown, where we shall go from number fifteen to number eleven. If for whatever reason you missed part one, shame on you, you can find it here.
So over the next few days I will be putting up my top 20 albums of the year. I initially had a shortlist of 65 albums, so cutting it down to 20 was incredibly hard. I will maybe put a few honourable mentions at the end, but we shall see how we get along. As usual, all my own opinion, don’t bother telling me I’m wrong, blah blah blah.
