Best of 2021

Haven't talked music in a while. Here's a list of albums that I've enjoyed this year. Not exhaustive, but not 10 either. One I just added as of two days ago. Some you may not be familiar with. I'd urge you to give them a shot.

A Pale Horse Named Death - Infernum In Terra
Asphyx - Necroceros
Clouds - Despărțire
Crippled Black Phoenix - Painful Reminder: Dead Is Dead
Dream Unending - Tide Turns Eternal
Gojira - Fortitude
Gràb - Zeitlang
Hail Spirit Noir - Mannequins
Iron Maiden - Senjutsu
KK’s Priest - Sermons Of The Sinner
Mastodon - Hushed And Grim
Sarke - Allsighr
The Lion’s Daughter - Skin Show
The Black Keys - Delta Kream

What's everyone else been listening to?

Re: Best of 2021

I haven't bought that much new music in recent years. My wife and I used to hit up the record store a couple times a month and come home with new CDs, but those days are long gone. The main band I've gotten into the last few years is King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I had tickets to see them at Red Rocks in May of 2020, then October 2020, then October 2021, and now going on October 2022. Sigh. Someday. In the meantime I keep buying all the live recordings they put out on Bandcamp.

Re: Best of 2021

I don't buy a lot of full albums anymore, and it seems like a lot of people I listen to don't even release full ones these days. But here are some of my favs from the past year:

Stridulum - Soothing Tales of Escapism
Young Empress - Lost Time
N-Frequency - What I Say
Echoberyl - Mother Solitude and Other Dark Tales
Angelo Badalamenti - Blue Velvet: The Deluxe Edition (technically old music but the fullest release we've gotten of everything he did for it).
Spectres - Hindsight
Actors - Acts of Worship
Ships In The Night - For a Sick World
Leathers - Reckless
Lorelei Dreaming - Future Fables
Wingtips - Cutting Room Floor
Kanga - You and I Will Never Die

Here's my Spotify playlist of all the individual songs I like that came out in 2021:

Just cut them up like regular chickens

Re: Best of 2021

I liked these:
John Carpenter - Lost Themes III: Alive After Death
Courtney Barnett - Things Take Time, Take Time
Iron Maiden - Senjutsu

These were OK:
Cannibal Corpse - Violence Unimagined
Carcass - Torn Arteries
Lucero - When You Found Me
At the Gates - The Nightmare of Being
Tomahawk - Tonic Immobility

Got kinda bored with these:
Mastodon - Hushed and Grim
Exodus - Persona Non Grata
Gojira - Fortitude
This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom.
