My picks for the best 5 albums of 2019, ranked not by best to worst, but by release date. These albums were selected for their overall enjoyability. It is becoming more rare that albums are enjoyable from beginning to end.
Heard It In A Past Life by Maggie Rogers (1/18/19)
I fell in love with the album as soon as I heard. I’ve been enjoying listening to this all year and it will be in heavy rotation going forward.
Cuz I Love You by Lizzo (4/19/19)
Lizzo blasted onto the scene this year with some great songs. Glad to see someone shake it up a little.
No. 6 Collaborations Project by Ed Sheeran (7/12/19
An unexpected collaboration album from Ed where every song sounds different. This is starting to become one of my favorite albums of all time.
Supermoon by Dirty Heads (8/9/19)
If you haven’t yet heard of Dirty Heads, they are hard to describe what genre they fall into. Reggae rock with some hip hop is the best way to describe it. This album is a great taste of the talent and diversity they bring to music.
Hollywood’s Bleeding by Post Malone (9/6/19)
Another year another classic album from Post Malone. This guy keeps cranking out good music. I’m hoping he keeps this up.
When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? By Billie Eilish (3/29/19)
This album has received a lot of critical acclaim. I do enjoy some of the songs from this album, but I feel it can’t stand up to the other five on this list. The albums I listed above are enjoyable from beginning to end where there are some spots on Billie’s album start to drift me into boredom.
Take time, before we get too deep into 2020 to take a listen to these albums if you haven’t.
