So many good albums this year. I love the diversity of this list. PassCode manages to take the top spot this year with an album that was mostly just re-recordings of old songs. Yeah I know, but dude, these re-recordings are EPIC. I don’t even want to count the amount of times I’ve thrown this album on in my car during commutes and whatnot. TWICE’s “BDZ” album was also really damn good. Pimm’s was a new group to me this year and they really burst onto the scene with some super strong music and PV’s. Ayuni D’s solo album was an epic surprise and it really made great use of her talents. I never expected to care about a Suzuki Airi solo career, but we’ll touch more on that later. EMPiRE had me from the start, and they’ve only gotten better. They honestly rival BiSH for me at this point, which is definitely high praise.

And the list goes on. So many fantastic albums this year spanning many genre’s. I truly love everything on this list and ranking it was an enormous chore.
