David's Music : Albums of the Year 2020

It's been a strange year, to put it mildly. Music and release wise there have been a lot of disruptions, delays and difficulties but music itself has been a constant - thank goodness. We want to say a big thanks to the musicians, artists, labels, distribution and everyone involved in bringing us the music we couldn't live without. 

As always our Staff Top 20 Albums of the Year is made up of our favourite albums released this year, some of them we even agree on!
