Maybe it was something lunar, maybe it was the fact that last year felt like four, or maybe it was just the world trying to get back to something close to normal, but 2021 passed awfully fast. Here we are, already in December, and some of us are still trying to catch up on the March movies. (Man, Baby shiva It was amazing, wasn’t it?) But before the new year rolls around, there are still a number of exciting titles on the horizon that will help us celebrate the holidays (or, in some cases, help us forget that the holidays are anywhere! place in sight). From longtime icons like Alicia Keys to indie royalty like Beach House, with some long-awaited albums, like Conway The Machine’s Shady Records debut, to boot, the final month of this year has the potential for greatness. So take a look, listen, and hopefully you’ll find a new and latest addition to your list of the best albums of the year.
