まとめ

ことしは各ディスクレビューは断念しました。しかしトップ10は特に満足のいくものでした。比較的王道、メジャーなものが多いランキングですが、それだけポップスがすきだということ。特に1位のOlivia Rodligoなんかは逆に一位にしづらいくらいにヒットしたアルバムで、エモーショナルかつポップでロックなサウンドはエモロック、ポップパンクの復権だと大きく取り上げられたことも記憶に新しいです。特に上半期はJustin BieberやLana Del Rey 、Pale Wavesと力強い作品が多かった印象です。みなさんの好きなアルバムはありましたか?こうやって並べて見返すと、また聴き直したくなる作品に出会えたりして楽しいですよね。今年も一年ありがとうございました。来年も引き続き当サイトをよろしくお願いいたします。
