    I haven't been good at keeping my list up to date this year but I came by to say that Lover by Taylor Swift is most likely my new AOTY. So much better than Reputation was and its way better than I expected it to be.

    Worst (0-5)

    Still Have To Listen To/ Anticipated
    Badflower – OK, I’m Sick
    Foals – Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Parts 1 and 2
    Lacuna Coil – Black Anima
    Lingua Ignota - Caligula
    Jade Bird-Jade Bird
    Keane – Cause and Effect
    Of Monsters and Men – Fever Dream
    Opeth – In Cauda Venenum
    PUP- Morbid Stuff
    The National – I Am Easy to Find
    Tropical Fuck Storm - Braindrops
    (could possibly be interesting to check out judging by the reviews it's been getting)
    Vampire Weekend – Father of the Bride

    I was impressed by how good the new Chelsea Wolfe album since the singles really lowered the expectations, but this record actually managed to improve greatly on the deep cuts and is now one of the best albums of the year and I suppose not many things will beat it in the final list.

    Cause And Effect - Keane (2019)
    This was an album I fell in love with from the first track, did not expect one of my all time favourite bands who I got into around the same time I got into LP to make a return.

    Amo - Bring Me The Horizon (2019)

    Nihilist Blues, Medicine and Sugar Honey Ice Tea are some of the best tracks from this album for me. MANTRA's alright. The rest I wasn't too fond of personally.

    PVRIS - Hallucinations (2019)
    So far, both tracks released have been disappointing but maybe we'll still get some rock-y PVRIS flavour in this one?

    Phantogram - [TBA]
    On the flipside, Phantogram's output lately has been great. Into Happiness, Mister Impossible and In A Spiral are really good, mixing the atmosphere of Three with the darkness of Voices and Nightlife.
