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: 77
Transcendent (90-99): 0
Amazing (80-89): 3
Good (70-79): 17
Nice (60-69): 33
Decent (56-59): 7
A mixed bag/Not my cup of tea (50-55): 9
Eww yuck ick no booooo (0-49): 8

Record of the month:
January: Partitas Part 1: BWV 825, 826, 830 by Evgeni Koroliov (76, really good)
February: L.W. by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard (76, really good)
