2021: Album Addiction

This is a record of all the 2021 releases I've listened to and rated. I wasn't able to make a list throughout the year last time since I joined mid-year, but this time, I finally have the chance to!

(I include EPs as well, just that the list name kinda has this alliteration thing going on and I don't want to ruin it)

Total records: 33
Transcendent (90-99): 0
Amazing (80-89): 0
Good (70-79): 6
Nice (60-69): 13
Decent (56-59): 4
A mixed bag/Not my cup of tea (50-55): 7
Eww yuck ick no booooo (0-49): 3
