Top 20 Blues Rock Roots Albums 2020
Despite the pandemic, 2020 brought so many outstanding blues, rock and roots albums. Top 20? It should be Top 30. We tried very hard to narrow our list down to Top 20 but we could not bring ourselves to cut one more album. So there’s 22. Call it the most unpredictable and challenging year yet and our number of albums fits right in. There’s just too much great music this year. That’s a great thing, something we are all grateful for.
With a record-breaking number of votes from fans, from the Rock and Blues Muse Group, and our editorial staff, our faith in music fans has been reaffirmed. We know that the fans have been and are keeping the music we love alive and that they’ll be there ready to jam when the pandemic has been contained and we can gather safely again. For now, add every one of these albums to your listening rotation.
This list is in no particular order. We do not believe there is a best or least best. Each album is just as great as the other.
