I Don’t Do Lists but…pt 1

Every year on social media and elsewhere, the big sites publish their end of year best of lists and this has always made me feel uncomfortable. On many, they are made up of the big names and labels, not very diverse and often narrow in scope. I also have a thing about the subjectivism of lists and rank. What one person says is great, another can’t see the fuss, often resulting in animosity and division…..Isn’t there enough in the world?

I decided a couple of years ago to try and cover as many of the new releases as possible, given my constraints, and have posted them under the moniker of I don’t do lists but….

This year I just used the #released2020 on twitter and here are the releases I’ve posted between December 1st to 7th 2020.

No order, no preference, no rank, not exhaustive,….It’s easy…
