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…

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.

August – two new releases, and the completed Kanye West takes over the top. I appear to be the only person who flipped out over the masterpiece of mothers, wives, divorce and Jesus, but I can’t hear why anyone is less than astounded at the achievement. I think perhaps West is so controversial that people sometimes can’t hear him

September – the second week of the month saw an inundation of new albums but only two made it it behind the velvet curtain: Lil Nas X and J Balvin.
