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…
