From DJ Wil Wander:

It was an unusual year and music releases were no different. I didn't find any albums that were dominant as number one, but there were certainly plenty of solid releases with some pleasant surprises, and admittedly, a few anticipated albums that were a bit disappointing. I will point out that the Sample Kulture release is quite arguably NOT within the genre range of the show, but I played it anyway because it was truly excellent and deserved to be shared and honored. These albums are listed alphabetically; a ranked list will be presented in the final show of the year.
