Top 40 Albums Of The Year (So Far)



Believe it or not, the year is half over - so what I've done is compiled a list of my favorite albums of the year so far. Keep in mind that these are personal preferences that will most likely change drastically as I spend more time with these records and as others are released in the second half of the year as well. Also keep in mind that yesterday was a new release day and I've included albums that haven't even been accessible to me for 24 hours because of it - one of which may or may not currently be sitting at number one. While that seems drastic, there's obviously going to be a fresh-factor in my decision making that will cause me to side with the hype and claim things I may second guess in due time - but I'm entitled to do so! And know that I've at least listened to them more than a few times so I'm not jumping the gun as much as you may think. Anyways, here you go:
