Yancey Strickler's Favorite Recordings Of 2002

Yancey Strickler, Neumu, 31 December 2002

In terms of great music, 2002 is as good a year as I can remember. It says a lot that when making this list, and my year-end mix of favorite singles, I had to make revision after revision to include incredible songs and albums I had briefly forgotten. In the end I came up with this list of 30 albums I'd obsessed over at one time or another. I realize it's lengthy and my descriptions are sometimes a bit lacking (the list is daunting — even for me!), but please read it through to the end. These albums are worth your time.
