Albums Year in Review

MusicNewsRumor’s 30 Best Albums of 2021

I’m changing things up this year. An album that might be sitting in my Top 3 one day might not even crack my Top 10 the next week or next month. So, like everything else in 2021, I threw the “rules” out the window, and my year-end lists are all going to be sorted alphabetically.

On any given day, all of these albums connected with me in a special way for whatever reason during this past year, and if they did that, they earned their spot on this list.
