In terms of album quality, this year was more in line with 2017 than 2018, but there is always excellence to be found if you know where to look. American Football's third self-titled album was both a Tucson album and a Phoenix album, which has its own personal significance. It'll help put your mind on the mend.

*checks notes*

 

1) Northlane - Alien

2) Dream State - Primrose Path

3) 3teeth - Metawar

4) Knocked Loose - A Different Shade Of Blue

5) Periphery - Periphery IV: Hail Stan

6) Issues - Beautiful Oblivion

7) Cattle Decapitation - Death Atlas

8) Danny Brown - Uknowhatimsayin?

9) Humanity's Last Breath - Abyssal

10) Denzel Curry - Zuu

 

Because I don't like putting EPs on my best of the year lists, it should be mentioned that Alpha Wolf's Fault and Dealer's Soul Burn EPs were my favorites of 2019, because I'm a very angry boi.

 

And I just don't feel right putting Crystal Lake's Helix in my 2019 list, as it was originally released in Japan in 2018.
