    Here's a place for everyone to share their EOTY lists for 2021.

    The Chorus.fm website contributors are hard at work at our own lists and we plan, like we did on AP.net, to post and share these on the website in early January.

    Hope everyone had a great musical year and I can't wait to read all everyone's lists.

    Here's the 2021 Albums thread if you need some memory refreshing on what you listened to this year.

    Underwater Boi

    Here we go, managed to pull together a top 40. I used bias sorter which made this way easier once I got into it. Including top 3 songs for the top 10. Every ranking past that is meaningless tbh.
