Rewinding 2019 | The Master Album List

Not quite all the musuic that fit in print this year — but enough of it.

This doesn’t include every album I heard or reviewed in 2019. But it does have almost everything I thought was worth remembering. I’d call that a good start. To find reviews or listen to the music, cut and paste the artist and title into the search box at the top of the page.
