My Top 25 Albums of 2019

Earlier this month, I posted My Top 60 Albums of the 2010s. I also posted my Top 5 Albums of 2019 within another post on my favorite books, TV shows, movies and albums of this past year.

Now I’m expanding the list to 25 albums. I chose one song from each album, with the playlist not being a countdown, but organized alphabetically by first name of artist or group with album title. Since on the playlist it doesn’t show the title of each album, I am including the full list here along with the year each album was released.

I also am including a second list of another 25 albums of honorable mentions, some that I only discovered within the past week, thanks to top album lists around the Internet.
