The titles listed below are among the most exceptional albums I've heard in a year filled with great music. Considering the quantity of recordings released in a years time, attempting to mention every high-quality session received would result in a list of ponderous proportions. As such, I have narrowed this list down to the records I repeatedly returned to throughout the year.
