The Quietus’ 2020 Albums Of The Year Playlist

As we bask in the glory of our top 100 albums of 2020 list, here's an eight-and-a-half hour end of year mega-playlist taking in the entire chart, exclusively for subscribers

As you may have noticed, Albums Of The Year season is upon us. tQ’s top 100, the only list you really need, is out now for you to peruse at your leisure, with Hey Colossus’ career-defining, mind-melting new double album Dances / Curses at number one. As ever, though the process of getting it all together is the most stressful part of tQ’s calendar, publishing it is perhaps our greatest joy, and we hope that you come across something you love as much we do.

2020 might have been completely awful, but the response to our new subscriber system has been one of the few rays of light. Without those of you who’ve chosen to support the site financially, there’s a good chance the pandemic would have sunk tQ for good.

Therefore as an additional perk for you, our most valued subscribers, we thought we’d share one last specially curated playlist, an albums of 2020 special! We’ve selected our favourite track from every single one of the records in our list (that were on streaming platforms) plus two apiece from the top 10, and put them all together as one gigantic eight-and-a-half hour mega-playlist to supplement the chart.

Subscribers will be able to find links to the playlist below, past the Steady paywall.
