Sound In The Signals - Best Albums & EPs Of 2020 List (Mid-Year)

One thing I can easily say is, I’ve never experienced a year quite like 2020. It’s been nice, at times, to take a break from everything and listen to some new music with everything going on with the state of the world. It’s been a good year for music so far. I’m really excited for the second part of the year and some of the releases that have been announced. However, a lot of release dates have been pushed back because of the pandemic and some albums I anticipated for this year are not out yet. A couple notes: I think a surprising moment came when Dan left Real Friends and a very sad moment was when Pop Smoke was killed as his talent was just beginning to be showcased. With all of that, here are my top 50 music releases for the first half of the year and you can check out past lists here.
