There may have been a bunch of great albums released over the course of 2019 — check out our AllMusic Loves 2019 list for proof — but this past year has also seen a ton of great older music reissued in new editions. Some of these reissues are indeed splashy super deluxe editions of beloved albums, such as an edition of Prince’s 1999 loaded with unreleased material from his legendary vaults, a box set rendition of the Beatles’ Abbey Road, and a series of expansions from Stereolab, whose 1990s catalog has now been overhauled. Elsewhere, there were weighty box sets covering Bakersfield country, the early years of Nat “King” Cole, the career of Ronnie Lane and the golden era of the Go-Betweens, excavations of unheard music by John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy, not to mention a revival of the little-heard new wave band Roger C.

The 2019 AllMusic Readers’ Poll


Right after a month of voting, we have tallied the benefits and can now present the 10 best albums of 2019, as voted by the AllMusic visitors. Some outdated favorites noticed worries from artists a generation (or two) their junior, making for a strong mix. Thanks for voting, thanks for studying, and thanks for sticking all-around into 2020.


Ode to Pleasure reveals that after their sabbatical, Wilco are additional than willing to examine the boundaries of their tunes, and they do so with the self-assurance and feeling of daring that have marked their best function from Getting There onward.” (Entire evaluation)


“Blues, garage, and old soul continue being at the foundation of the group’s audio, but they have swapped jammy excesses for more than-saturated fuzz guitars and stacked vocal overdubs. Scratch the generation gloss a bit, and it really is obvious those people six strings are well balanced by clever drum loops and other digital aptitude that give the album a modern vibrancy, even if its sensibility is unabashedly retro.” (Full assessment)


“On her huge-league debut, Billie Eilish helps make a daring entrance into the mainstream, leaving the fringes guiding to embrace her job as an anti-pop star for the disaffected Gen Z masses. With a youthful, hybrid mix that incorporates aspects of indie electronic, pop, and hip-hop, [the album] captures the late-2010s zeitgeist by throwing conventional boundaries to the wind and absolutely committing to its genre-blurring self.” (Comprehensive assessment)


All Mirrors was originally conceived as a double album with solo renditions of the same tunes, but as the thoroughly recognized tracks took condition, Olsen fully commited to a definitive version. However she could have initially created her reputation on stark and brittle atmospheres, it turns out that her trademark vulnerability is only elevated by these stirring, extremely stylized interpretations, earning it a danger that pays off in spades.” (Total evaluate)


“This 3rd album wears its self-titling as a badge of honor, a statement of who Michael Kiwanuka as artist and personal is. As soon as a lot more developed by Risk Mouse and Inflo, this 13-song established is a brave, colorful assortment that supplies an extremely very well-rounded aural portrait of Kiwanuka’s large and diverse talent.” (Whole assessment)


“Following reaching peak musical and lyrical density on Fashionable Vampires of the City, they’re reborn with a West Coastline point of view and speed on Father of the Bride, supplying all 18 of its tunes a lot more area for their novelistic element and shocking juxtapositions. It really is much easier to hear and really feel where the band is coming from, in substantial section due to the fact [Ezra] Koenig’s songwriting is clearer than at any time.” (Full overview)


“Springsteen plays and writes with a gentle touch on this 2019 album, his empathy obvious in his sequence of story songs and character portraits and in his embrace of one more facet of AM radio that he previously prevented: orchestrated preparations so rich and enveloping they can audio softly trippy.” (Comprehensive evaluation)


“Not incredibly, soon after about a decade, the foursome have matured, presenting an older, wiser viewpoint born of a very well-adjusted shift into the really hard-gained comforts of adulthood. Thinking about the prolonged hole between albums, there was a lingering anxiety that they couldn’t dwell up to their have buzz or legacy. Fortuitously, Tool managed to boost and ideal their seem even further, resulting in one of the strongest statements in their catalog.” (Complete overview)


“Grief is hardly the only emotion that Cave and his ensemble the Terrible Seeds explores on 2019’s Ghosteen, but a feeling of decline and a significant heart permeates these tracks like a thick fog, as properly as the bonds of family members and how they can convey us with each other and keep us apart. Ghosteen seems like the musings of a handful of shed souls, every single trapped in their own barren prairie with recollections that soothe and ache at the moment, and its electrical power is frustrating even though the quantity is very low-important.” (Comprehensive overview)


“Lana Del Rey expands her eyesight with the most daring and susceptible work of her catalog. Exactly where Lust for Everyday living experienced its share of enormous drums and booming dynamics, quite a few tunes here have a tendency in direction of significantly extra solitary atmospheres. Wherever massive pop hooks achieved eerie melodrama on prior albums, below both of those extremities of that components have developed much more understated and direct. Even though much of her more mature materials reveled in its possess inconsolable sadness and detached numbness, the lush sonics and personal narratives below attract out hope from beneath desolate scenes. The patient circulation, dangerous songwriting options, and experienced character of the album make it the most majestic chapter of Lana Del Rey’s continuing saga of appreciate and disillusionment below the California Sunshine.” (Entire evaluate)
