Looking Closer’s Annual Favorite Albums Lists (2001-Present)

I’ve been making favorite albums lists annually since I was 13 years old. But I didn’t start listening to a wide range of musical genres and styles until college, and my writing about music wasn’t really worth sharing until the late 90s. So unless I go back and write up new lists for the ’80s and ’90s, we’ll just focus on more recent years.

I hope these commentaries and recommendations of personal favorites lead you to some rewarding hours under the headphones.
