Our Favorite Albums of 2021 (61 in total)

Posted by Greg on Dec 12, 2021 in Music |

Lists are stupid. Really, really stupid. I don’t like making these lists but America loves them and as such, here it goes. Now for the disclaimer. Are these all the best albums of the year? Probably not. I can’t listen to everything. And now for the controversial part. This list might be alphabetical next year. Why you ask? It can be argued that album #50 is as good as #1 and #35 is as good as #2. But nonetheless here goes.
