My top albums from the past few years...

The following are the albums that made me hit the play button once the last song finished. Narrowing each year down to 10 albums was quite hard at times.

 Lists such as these are always subjective. Through the eclectic mix of albums, you may notice a trend towards heavy metal, Christian rock, reggae, African musicians, and female singer-songwriters. You would be correct.
