I Was Gonna Do A Top 10 Albums Of The Year List...

...but why even bother?

The Jason Isbell record is miles away so much better than everything else that doing a list seems kinda silly.

Buy it immediately if you haven't already.

So I'm left with doing an unranked honorable mentions list. All of these are albums you should check out unless you really hate good music:

Butch Walker - Afraid Of Ghosts
Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit
Ginger Wildheart - Year Of The Fanclub
Alabama Shakes - Sound & Color
Biters - Electric Blood
Steve Earle - Terraplane
Backyard Babies - Four By Four
Chris Stapleton - Traveller
ELO - Alone In The Universe
Michael Monroe - Blackout States
