Best Of 2021: Albums In Order Of Preference Through July 31st

1 – Mother Love – Angelique Kidjo

2 – Sour – Olivia Rodrigo

3 – Justice – Justin Bieber

4 – Donda – Kanye West

5 – Deacon – serpentwithfeet

6 – Heart & Soul – Eric Church

7 – Ten Songs of Worship & Praise for Our Tumultuous Times – St. Lenox

8 – House of Lull . House of When – Alexis Marshal

9 – Somewhere – Sun June

10 – Thirstier – Torres

11 – Ultra Pop – The Armed

12 – Young Shakespeare – Neil Young

13 –  ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE – Brockhampton

14 –  Oh! Pardon tu dormais… – Jane Birkin

15- Dear Lemon House, You Ruined Me: Senior Year – Kaonashi

16 – Sound Ancestors – Madlib

17 – Once Upon A Time – Chika

18 – Madre – Arca

19 –  J.T. – Steve Earle

20 – Los Dioses – Anuel AA, Ozuna

21 – Off The Yak – Young M.A.

January: a very quiet month (even if I included the first week of February, it would shake it up), the big surprise is Madlib, of course…

February: a short month and a slow month for the year, all the real action has been on the singles so far so despite Madlib and Sun June being near the top there is an overriding sense of the year not having started. Specifically, rap has been very quiet.

March – The year begins to settle in with serpentwithfeet, at least for now, gonna be difficult to dislodge from the top spot. As for Neil Young, that is one great performance…

April – The year has properly kicked in and for a month takes the limelight away from singles. Bieber went from a disappointment to the best album of the year, once you get past MLK, the deeply melodic and sweet strong ode to love (and God) improves and improves. It is possible Eric Church will replace him at # 1 at some point, or even serpentwithfeet will come all the way back. I am holding off putting box sets on this list, if I wasn’t The who and John Lennon would be here. Here is Justin:

May – a ton of albums but mostly indifferent rather than good, Olivia is the first new superstar, Young M.A. invents drill in her own image, mathcore has its masterpiece…

June – a hot and heated month, with two albums that vie for top spot, especially Kidjo’s Afropop masterpiece at the top, and very  difficult to beat as well

July – Three new entries, Torres’ best album to date, the former Daughter’s nihilism, and the not yet released Kanye West latest.
