With so many artists forced off the road for most of the last 2 years, we predicted that 2021 would be an epic year in quantity of music released – and boy were we correct. If you missed some of the new releases – not to worry – we love helping you discover the most meaningful music on the planet. As is our tradition, we have assembled our UTR Critics’ Panel to honor the cream of the crop from the year gone by – specifically looking for excellence in songwriting, production, execution, and depth of spirituality. Fun fact – proving the wide breadth of quality music this last year – our 10 panelists selected 10 different albums as their #1 choice. Without further ado, here is UTR’s final collective Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2021.
[Albums qualify if the music comes from a Christ-following artist, over 50% of the album’s songs were new to 2021 and were released between 12/1/20 and 12/1/21.]
