The year 2020 threw a lot of misery and negativity at the world. Between the seemingly endless issues raised as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the political problems that plagued America and the world, and some of the most respected names in the industry passing, there has been more than enough for us to never speak of 2020 again when it ends. For all of that negativity and misery that the world has seen this year though, there actually has been at least some positive in the form of new music from so many acts. The lists compiled already recently by Phil’s Picks and other outlets have more than supported that statement. That new music includes new albums from lots of new and established rock acts, such as Deep Purple, Faith & Scars, and even Nine Inch Nails. All three acts are featured in this year’s list of Phil’s Picks Top 10 New Rock Albums. Their musical and lyrical content collectively (and sometimes by themselves) prove them fully deserving of their spots on this (and any critic’s) list.
As with every other list from Phil’s Picks, this list features the Top 10 new titles in the given category and five additional honorable mention titles for a total of 15 titles. Without any further ado, here is Phil’s Picks 2020 Top 10 New Rock Albums.
