I had to submit my hard rock and heavy metal list to the site I write for already so that list is now up. But I've got a few more albums to listen to and review before the end of the year so this list may change. Until then, here's my Top 8 releases in this genre:

01.) Mike Tramp - Stray From The Flock (Target)
02.) Helix - Old School (Perris)
03.) Tora Tora - Bastards Of Beale (Frontiers)
04.) Queensryche - The Verdict (Century Media)
05.) Helloween - United Alive In Madrid (Nuclear Blast)
06.) Gary Hoey - Neon Highway Blues (Provogue)
07.) L.A. Guns - The Devil You Know (Frontiers)
08.) Hell's Addiction - V1.0 (Independent)

I'm not much into metal (as my list indicates) but my neighbors are. They've been really into Waste Of Space Orchestra this year.

The Yola album is really good. I am also a big fan of "Father of the Bride" by Vampire Weekend and "Cuz I Love You" by Lizzo.

The Sleater-Kinney and St. Vincent Collaboration is pretty great, as is the cast recording to "Hadestown."

My two clear favs were IGOR by Tyler, the Creator and Ventura by Anderson .Paak

Also really enjoyed Bandana by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib.
Great to hear you again mentions for One of the Best Yet by Gang Starr and May the Lord Watch by Little Brother.

Happy New Year everyone Smile

If I could recommend one "pop"/mainstream album from 2019 to people who weren't regular pop-music listeners, it's hands-down Lana Del Rey's Norman F***ing Rockwell!, a finalist for this year's Album of the Year Grammy. And it's much more in the singer-songwriter or even alternative rock genres than pop imo.

I struggle with pop these days and yeah that was my favourite "pop" album of the year as well.
