I usually only manage a top 10 every year with a couple of honorable mentions--top 15 max. I don't get enough time to listen to and absorb new music as I would like--and it takes a while for me to absorb albums. For me, this year started off slow but ended up picking up nicely. There was a lot that I ended up enjoying.
I can't comment on a lot of pop releases people have been mentioning--I haven't heard the Ariana, JoJo, Tove Lo, or Roisin Murphy records. That said, I think there's been a lot of GREAT R&B music this year.
