Because I can't get enough of the constant barrage of year end Top 10 lists, I feel the need to add to the endless parade by creating my own each year, based on the jams that made my face melt, made me forget about Trump, or had some other profound effect, during the course of the year.
By the way, as in previous years, the following list, in no way, represents the musical preferences of other Hey! Makers, although it should, cause these albums are freaking sweet!
So, without further ado ...
