Årets Top 10 Album (Lenge leve albumet!)

1. Bob Dylan- Rough and Rowdy Ways (Columbia)
- All the Bob Dylan in the world adds up to one great record.

- Amerikanske Luke Elliots oppfølger-album satt langt inne, men slår fast at Luke er arvingen til amerikansk East Coast Rocks trone.

- Norsk americana melder seg på i den internasjonale eliten.
4. Shaye Zadravec- Now and Then (Indelible Music)
- Ny, kanadisk stemme som kan løfte de beste sangene til himmels.
5. Marcus King - El Dorado (Easy Eye Sound/ Fantasy)

7. Jørund Vålandsmyr & Menigheten - Hvite dager, mørke kvelder (Apollon)
- Norsk americanas mest egenartede sanger for tiden er raskt tilbake med nytt album.
8. Various Artists- AngelHeaded Hipster/ The Songs of Marc Bolan & T.Rex (BMG)
- Produsenten Hal Willners siste i livet er en joy-ride fra ende til annen, inkludert Nick Caves enorme versjon av «Cosmic dancer».
9. Luke Elliot- Live in Oslo 13.06.2020 (Black Sea Entertainment)
- Korona sørget for at bare femti publikummere fikk med seg denne søndags-konserten i sommer, mange flere så den på nettet og noen få har denne suvere vinylen.
10. Jonathan Wilson-Dixie Blur/ Rare Blur (Bella Union)
- Gitarist/ produsent Wilson lager unik folk/country som i sannhet er kosmisk. På årets flottest designede album, komplett med et ekstra minialbum, Rare Blur.
