In the world of music, the end of the year means one thing: lists! In an (admittedly futile) effort to acknowledge the great music that came my way this year, I’ve pulled together five such lists (so far).
We covered the TerraSonic compilations a few posts back. #4 on our Bucket of Lists is TerraSonic albums. There was so much great music out there, but these were the records I kept coming back to this year. I love them all. They have me excited for what 2019 brings.
The Vibrarian's Bucket (of) List(s):
#4: TerraSonic: 9 albums
(All lists are in alphabetical order. It’s hard enough to narrow it down to the final items. To then rank them is overkill (though some might say that I blew past that point a long time ago). The way I see it, whichever one I’m listening to in any given moment is the best.)
NOTE: Albums with a (*) would also appear on the overall Top Albums list, coming soon.

Angelique Kidjo — Remain In Light (Kravenworks)
