The year 2020 was a reminder that truly soul-enriching and meaningful music is not a luxury, but a necessity. Music has been something to stabilize us and remind us of what is true and good, even during dark days. Maybe you were busy with quarantining, Zoom calls, learning how to cook, homeschooling your kids for the first time, binging Netflix, and working remotely… and maybe you didn’t have time to keep track of all the terrifically well-crafted music that arrived over this last year. That’s okay. We love helping to point you to the best stuff… and in this case, it’s the cream of the crop from 2020. We specifically are looking for music that is excellent – in terms of songwriting, production, execution, and the depth of spirituality. Here’s what our UTR Panel of Critics collectively voted on as The Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2020.
[Albums qualify if the music comes from a Christ-following artist, over 50% of the album’s songs were new to 2020, and was released between 12/1/19 and 12/1/20.]
