Every album I listen to will be included on here, even if I hated it. From these I create my decade charts, where you will find no filler. Basically anything rated 60% or higher I recommend depending on your tastes.

Hey just wanted to drop by and sing this chart's praises. I have been seeing your comments on this year's albums all year and I find your chart to be a great resource for recs - especially (but not only) hip hop. I just now combed and put that GUMBO'! album high on my queue based solely on this chart.

For most of the year I haven't been drawn to hip hop albums even the major ones. This last week though new Injury Reserve has absolutely taken over my life and I adore it, as well I have come to love Haram, it finally clicked and also the Little Simz, and Kanye releases also contributed to me getting really into hip hop. Now I am hard at work catching up.

Anyway, this is still a favorite and just wanted to say hello.
