O.K., so we again reach another new year. It's somewhat cliché to think that a particular year has been the 'best' for music, what with the many contributing factors that affect such dynamics, however, this one just past certainly contained some of the most amazing music I've ever had the opportunity to hear. It's a shame that I haven't had the time to properly sort this year's list outside of the top 20, or so, but here goes. As usual, each category is sorted only on the basis of an alphabetical order, however, as opposed to 100 records, there is a top 50, plus a top 10 tracks:
