Top 10 Albums

The Top 5 albums on my Top 10 List

My top ten could have been my top twenty or top thirty but the albums I listened to the most this year (by far) were these five: Night Surfer, The Arrow, Deadstock, Most Messed Up and Love Away. I both blame and thank Chuck Prophet, Jeffrey Dean Foster, Michael Rank, Old 97's and Chris Hickey.

1. Chuck Prophet - Night Surfer

2. Jeffrey Dean Foster - The Arrow

3. Michael Rank & Stag - Deadstock

4. Old 97's - Most Messed Up

5. Chris Hickey - Love Away

6. The Backsliders - Raleighwood

7. The Loudermilks - The Loudermilks

8. Dave & Phil Alvin - Common Ground

9. John Fullbright - Songs

10. Sturgill Simpson - Metamodern Sounds in Country Music

I think Rudyjeep had Chuck listed as his #1 "with a bullet", to which I'd say Chuck's entire catalog "with a bullet".  Who has else has put together such a long string of highly creative records?  Not too many!
