2020 has been a year to forget; The year the COVID-19 pandemic struck humanity & global economy, and changed our lives to the worst. It’s also been another year of (racial) police brutality, with by far the worst case that of George Floyd’s killing by a white police officer, who pressed his knee to the victim’s neck for over eight minutes. We all know what followed next.

It’s a year most of us we want to let slip of memory, but it’s also been a great year of music! Based on the staff lists Last Day Deaf has been publishing the past few weeks, you should check below the Top 50 annual albums (click on the tabs below for positions 40-31, 30-21, 20-11, 11-2 & 1!).. Hope you enjoy and best wishes for a much better 2021 for all of us!
