Great stuff, I'll look forward to going through the list.  Being a springsteen fan it was great to see him top your list.

Hello, Sunshine song of the year for me.  It has that beautiful, wistful Americana vibe

Any chance of a 2020 Top 30 Ian?

It's been another great year for new music and I look forward to your list each year.

Hi mate - that's really kind of you to ask, thank you! I agree it's been a fantastic year fr new music and, as usual, I've struggled to fit my favourite albums into 30 places. There are some big hitters that have missed out as well. 

I'm typing up mini-reviews as we speak and (hopefully!) I'll get it published and online by the end of the coming weekend.

As soon as it's up and running, I'll post a link on here.

Happy New Year to you and all the other MC contributors :-)

Yeah, actually it's not a secret,  I have.
I've heard parts of their latest offerings. Enough to know I'm not interested in hearing any more. TS's country pop never interested me, although I guess with her latest with the guy from "the National" she's dropped just singing about her ex's.. Likewise was never a fan of  GaGa's dance pop(although my hair dresser was a BIG fan). She has a decent voice, and from what I heard of her Tony Bennett duets could be a good singer if she was inclined to learn jazz vocals from jazz artists. That might interest me.
As far as Bieber goes, well.... he's "Bieber" after all.
Although he has some cool tats I hear.
