As the year draws to a close I thought it might be fun to see if Forum can come up with an album of the year. Needs to be a new album not a re- release, remaster etc (my rules!). Although it is ok if recorded a long time ago but only released this year (I’m looking at you NY). After a suitable period, determined by me) I will collate top 10 into a poll. Remember it is just a bit of fun.
I’m going to kick off with something only released today but I saw it when it was first streamed live and it blew me away. Idiot Prayer by Nick Cave. A recording of his solo performance at Ally Pally tbhis year. Superb recording, brilliant songs and an outstanding performance by the man.
