Looking Back: Top 10 Most Mesmerising Albums Of 2020

We know we are a bit late to this one as we’re nearing the end of January, 2021 (which honestly feels like a strange fever dream, as time seems to have dissipated since March 2020…anyway, I digress). However, we figured we’d put together a list of ten of our favourite albums from last year that if you haven’t – you most definitely NEED to listen to.

We found these albums to truly stand out among many other releases; with outstanding songwriting, production, conceptual execution, aesthetics and more – so despite our tardiness – let’s get into it!
