A busy month, October. Lots of posts. I got into a bit of theatre-reviewing, there were some conversation and blog-post type things – not just the straight reviews. We debuted a new special guest with Retro Record Reviews and still lots of record reviews too – including plenty of albums by big names in the industry: Lady Gaga, Suzanne Vega, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison…they all released great new things (or I got around to reviewing them).
So click here for the best albums I reviewed in October.
You’ll find reissues, compilations, EPs and live albums – as well as full-length studio releases. Most of the material here was released in 2015/16 but in some cases it was released in 2014 and only made it to me this year – or I only (finally) got to it this year.
