Lest we forget: best albums of past years and months

I remember being excited like hell every year early December and counting the days before it finally arrived by post (we were living a pre-internet age): New Musical Express Xmas issue and the lists of best albums and singles of the year! Of course, things have changed a bit now, NME is not the reference it used to be and you can find lists all over the place on the web. What I try to do in this blog is to live the same passion as when I was a teenager crazy about music… and this is still who I am actually.

For the sake of simplicity, please refer to this page to get all our favourite albums of the past years and months. Click on the album you choose to read this blog’s review.

For a comprehensive site of all media lists from previous years, you will not find a better site than Julian White’s Rocklist.
