MOJO’s Top 75 Albums of 2019

MOJO Leonard Cohen

The year is coming to a close and best of 2019 season is in full swing (as is best of the decade season). As always, UK print mag MOJO is one of the earlier lists to come out.

The list does include the late Leonard Cohen (pictured above on the cover of this issue), as well as a lot of other classic acts (Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Neil Young, Santana, Madonna, Nick Cave), plenty of this year’s usual suspects (Lana Del Rey, Weyes Blood, Aldous Harding, Bill Callahan, black midi, Purple Mountains, Brittany Howard, Big Thief, Dave, Sharon Van Etten, Lizzo, Thom Yorke, Bon Iver, Tool, and more), and probably some stuff you haven’t heard yet too. You can check out their full list below, and pick up a copy of the new MOJO issue here.
