It was a great year for a lot of music. This list is mostly arbitrary, with its highest emphasis on Album playtime and my general demeanor towards the band.

Granted there are plenty of albums not on the honorable mention that are great additions to any library, and there are plenty albums I have yet to intensely give a chance, but will continue to. Its only been a year, and significantly less for many releases.
