Perhaps a little bit late, but I think you will forgive me for the time I had to take off and finalize the entries (on the beach!). Anyway, if you’ve been following Headphone Commute for 9 years, then you know how this goes. If you are new to the end of year celebrations, below you will find a summary of the year’s best music (reviewed and/or heard by HC) in a form of thematically grouped lists. These lists feature only full-length albums, without any ratings or genres, presented in alphabetical order by artist. If you find that you like a particular entry on one list, be sure to check out the others. You get the idea! With only one list published per day, you’ll have plenty of music to check out! I hope you’ve been saving up your hard earned money for this one – please support the featured artists and labels! Here we go, kids!
