Best albums of 2021

This has been a great year for music. I find myself saying this a lot, but it’s true. There was a little something for everyone and amid the chaos and confusion of real life there was an abundance of tunes to explore in this medium. From spoken word to breathing exercises to unbridled horniness and devastating heartbreak, I truly had some delicious fucking food this year. So, here are 25 of my favorite albums released in 2021.
