January: very quiet for albums, though not so much for singles where albums on the horizon make an early landing. I try to end up with no more than 20 and last year had 26 albums by the end of the year -which means some of these won’t make it. But The Weeknd should…

February: all top three albums are new to this month, Regina Bonelli is going to be difficult to better, but then again I said that about The Weeknd…

March: Three new albums in the top five, Arrdee is his debut mixtape and Shenseea is a new and wonderful dancehall performer from Jamaica

April: Kae Tempests best in years and Hodgy, the Odder Odd future, with an excellent EP

May: three more, the Venezuelan opera singer Samuel Marino, the new Tomas Doncker (but not the last, we are awaiting Endangered) and the sublimely badass Otoboke Beaver

June: the first shake up of the year sees three albums fall off and a new # 1

July – two major r&b albums near the upper reaches, Lil Uzi Vert and Lizzo

August – April’s debut album vaults to # 2

September – the shake up at the top continues with Otokobe Beaver leaping into the top three after months on the bubble, and my favorite Dawes album also making n apperance while Drake drops off entirely.

October: the Kodak Black (and Baby Keems come to think of it) dropped a great album as we reel from the ridiculous murder of Takeoff… why would a 28 year old superstar be shooting dice in a bowling alley? To what end? Anyway, four rap albums here…

November: Yes, the Kodak album was a goodie but it didn’t repay listening with revelation and found itself off the best of the best replaced by the Queendon come of Afrobeats, the irreproachable Yemi Alade.. only Doncker could’ve have kept her off the first place in 22.

December: The SZA album is a major release and a giant album though Endangered -a multi media work of extended agitprop is the best of the best
