2020: Worst to Best

2020 is a disappointing year for music.

Sam Hunt - Southside
1.
8
Sam Hunt's Southside is exactly as bad as you thought it would be.
Nav - Brown Boy 2
2.
17
Within the span of three days, NAV upsettingly regresses back to the robotic, lifeless sound of Bad Habits.
Gunna - WUNNA
3.
19
This is bad.
Joyner Lucas - ADHD
4.
22
ADHD is the perfect album for sheltered white teenagers, but for everyone else ADHD has got to be one of the most nauseating experiences of the year.
Gunna - WUNNA (Deluxe)
5.
23
This is also bad, but a little bit better.
Black Eyed Peas - Translation
6.
25
The once famous Black Eyed Peas continue to discover new ways to be annoying with Translation.
A Boogie Wit da Hoodie - Artist 2.0
7.
28
Now that Roddy Ricch has proven himself to be a force in the music industry, A Boogie wit da Hoodie's brand of bland melody-driven trap music no longer serves much of a purpose.
Blueface - Find The Beat
8.
32
A somewhat decent first half and an irredeemable second half assemble for Blueface's first and final album.
Smokepurpp - FLORIDA JIT
9.
35
FLORIDA JIT becomes way too repetitive way too fast.
Nav - Emergency Tsunami
10.
35
Emergency Tsunami is less of a Tremor to Remember and more of an Earthquake of Mistake.
Lil Baby - My Turn
11.
36
Though My Turn is a noticeable improvement from Baby's previous efforts, there's still a lot that needs fixing.
Jaden - CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3
12.
38
CTV3's huge potential is unfortunately scrapped before it can even get going.
DaBaby - BLAME IT ON BABY
13.
39
DaBaby gets rid of everything that made his music somewhat interesting in the first place to make way for his awful singing and some of his most generic instrumentals to date.
Justin Bieber - Changes
14.
39
On Changes, Justin Bieber struggles to adapt to the current music era for almost an hour.
MALNEEZY - It's Everywhere, It Loops (2018-2020)
15.
40
It's Everywhere, It Loops. Run while you still can.
Implicit Doom - What Do You Know About Death
16.
40
What Do You Know About Death is just plainly forgettable.
Teyana Taylor - The Album
17.
47
Teyana Taylor's lack of character is amplified even further by the gargantuan length of THE ALBUM.
Childish Gambino - 3.15.20
18.
45
If Childish Gambino's goal was to waste my time with 3.15.20, then he's succeeded with flying colors.
BLACKPINK - The Album
19.
46
BLACKPINK's fantastic performances are unfortunately drowned out by some particularly god-awful production choices.
Nav - Good Intentions
20.
55
Good Intentions represents a major leap forward in quality for NAV, and I couldn't be happier.
Selena Gomez - Rare
21.
48
Selena Gomez fails to communicate true depression and instead communicates true boredom on Rare.
Halsey - Manic
22.
48
Halsey fails to communicate true mania and instead communicates true boredom on Manic.
5 Seconds of Summer - CALM
23.
48
Don't be fooled by the fantastic singles: CALM is one of the easiest skips of the year.
Concrete Castles - The Album of Obscure Sorrows
24.
50
The lack of a well-executed concept and the sheer boredom of it all makes AOOS yet another mediocre AOTY offering.
Stankysauce - Pretty Things
25.
50
As with many other producer-guided releases, Pretty Things is cursed with overwhelming length.
Jay Electronica - A Written Testimony
26.
50
For a project with as much hype behind it as it had, A Written Testimony is just kind of ok.
BTS - MAP OF THE SOUL : 7
27.
51
The BTS downward spiral has officially begun.
Dan Deacon - Mystic Familiar
28.
52
Mystic Familiar lacks great fundamentals nor is it ahead of the curve: it has little worth in the music economy.
Future & Lil Uzi Vert - Pluto x Baby Pluto
29.
53
The Pluto duo serve up sixteen tracks of slop on the lamely-named Pluto x Baby Pluto.
Chris Brown & Young Thug - Slime & B
30.
53
Young Thug predictably shines and Chris Brown predictably shits on the predictably mediocre Slime&B.
Future - High Off Life
31.
54
High Off Life isn't All Bad, but it's obvious that Future is Too Comfortable with putting out bloated, forgettable slogs of albums.
Lil Uzi Vert - Eternal Atake
32.
55
Eternal Atake's highs don't go high enough to negate it's lowest lows.
Ariana Grande - Positions
33.
55
positions sees Ariana Grande continue to release great vocal performances, but half-baked ideas.
BTS - MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 ~ THE JOURNEY ~
34.
56
MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 ~ THE JOURNEY ~ is less of a celebration of what the group's achieved and more of a grim reminder of what they've become.
Implicit Doom - Falling in Line
35.
57
Implicit Doom's fourth release this year is way too experimental for its own good.
Agust D - D-2
36.
57
Agust D's talent for rapping is there, but there just aren't enough good ideas for D-2 to be anything more than a quick snack for fans.
Eminem - Music To Be Murdered By
37.
58
A step up from Revival and Kamikaze, sure, but Music To Be Murdered By is too long and too inconsistent to be considered a truly great project.
Lil Yachty - Lil Boat 3
38.
59
Lil Boat 3's very obvious length problem ruins the chances of Yachty's comeback actually being a reality.
Implicit Doom - Implicit Doom
39.
60
Implicit Doom follows up his lackluster debut with something that's actually worthwhile.
Concrete Castles - Onanon
41.
63
Onanon is a record I dearly wish I could enjoy, but it's overwhelming length unfortunately melts my weak cerebellum.
Concrete Castles - playsound("Ep.wav")
42.
62
The brief and underdeveloped nature of playsound undermines the immense potential and pure euphoria of Concrete Castles' possible new sound.
Pop Smoke - Meet The Woo 2
43.
63
Meet the Woo, Vol. 2 fixes some of Vol. 1's biggest problems, but it's repetitive nature still remains.
Lil Uzi Vert - LUV vs. The World 2
44.
65
LUV vs. The World 2 is better than Eternal Atake by virtue of having less Lil Uzi Vert.
Ty Dolla $ign - Featuring Ty Dolla $ign
45.
65
Featuring Ty Dolla $ign shows the growth Ty's experienced over the past few years in limited capacity.
Drake - Dark Lane Demo Tapes
46.
69
Dark Lane Demo Tapes is decently delightful Drake mixtape to tide us over for a few months.
Stankysauce - Analog Autopsy
47.
70
Stankysauce's latest venture improves on his previous by leaps and bounds.
Elitimesfour - from an unknown
48.
71
Elitimesfour emerges from an unknown and feeds us with back to back bops.
Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist - Alfredo
50.
72
Alfredo's more digestible portion size and fantastic instrumental palette make it a much better project than 2019's Bandana.
