Mid-Year makeshift Top 40 Albums of 2019

This is a hastily put together list of my favorite albums of the year so far, loosely put together. After the top 8, the rankings are particularly loose. Which means the stuff near the bottom could easily switch with stuff ranked 20-30 places above it. 2019 has been pretty darned good so far.

1. Jamila Woods -- LEGACY! LEGACY!
2. Weyes Blood – Titanic Rising
3. Priests – The Seduction of Kansas
4. CHAI – PUNK
5. The Comet Is Coming – Trust in the Lifeforce of Deep Mystery
