      50. Loïc Nottet – Sillygomania
      70 points




      Chartrun: *6*-8-6-9-13-16-19-Out / 7w
      Certification: -


      Belgian singer Loïc Nottet opens the album countdown with Sillygomania, his second studio album. Loïc is mostly known for having represented Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with Rhythm Inside, and his debut album Selfocracy even reached #9 on my Year-End Charts 2017. Sillygomania is another good album, but just not as good as his debut.

      American band PVRIS scored their most successful entry on my charts in 2020, as their third album Use Me did surprisingly well. Even though I’m a Rock lover, I actually enjoy their more Pop stuff a lot more and Use Me was a nice positive surprise for me personally.

      I obviously always knew who Alanis Morissette was and also know lots of singles from her, but truth be told, Such Pretty Forks In The Road is my first and only album by the Canadian legend so far. A beautiful listening experience!

      47. Bilal Hassani – Contre soirée

      Certification: -


      Following Loïc Nottet who opened the countdown, Bilal is already the second Eurovision related artist as he represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. His debut album Kingdom reached #44 on the Year-End Charts 2019 and its follow-up Contre soirée does similarly. Both are good records, though I think his debut is more cohesive, while Contre soirée offers a sound that fits more to Bilal as an artist.

      K-Pop was still a huge thing in 2020 and with Blackpink having scored two entries on the Year-End Charts 2020 with Lovesick Girls (#100) and How You Like That (#24), it’s less surprising to see them also appearing on the album countdown with their first full-length studio album simply called The Album. This is as good as I was hoping for, with some real Pop bangers. I’m still mad they never released Bet You Wanna with Cardi B as a single though.

        German Symphonic Metal band Beyond The Black released their fourth album Horizons in 2020. I only discovered them through their third album Heart Of The Hurricane in 2018, that reached #72 on the Year-End Charts back then, so Horizons is just their second, and already a more successful entry.

        Canadian singer Allie X is a discovery from UKMix, as I wouldn’t have known about her otherwise. Cape God is her first album to chart and was already a very positive surprise early in 2020. Definitely someone who deserves more mainstream success.

        Certification: -


        British Synth-Pop duo Hurts released their fifth album Faith in 2020. I never was the biggest fan of the duo, but they were still interesting enough that I kept checking them out. With that said, I think each new album was weaker than the previous one and Faith finally stopped this trend, as I think this is their best effort since Happiness in 2010. A strong, dark Synth-Pop album.

        Certification: -


        RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Blair St. Clair already made a splash with her debut mini album Call My Name in 2017, where she reached #37 on the Year-End Charts. Her second album Identity does slightly worse, though it’s yet another success for her and is responsible for three entries on the Year-End Charts 2020 with Empty (#78), 9 Lives (#43) and Space Between (#42).

        Chartrun: *1*-1-1-2-SC / 4w
        Certification: -


        Miley Cyrus closes this group with a very recent release, her seventh studio album Plastic Hearts. Miley rarely disappoints me and has been a big hit maker for me ever since her debut album Breakout, but she’s been on a huge downward trend on the official charts out there, so Plastic Hearts seems to be a return to success for her. This discovers a more Rock-y site of the singer and shines with an exceptionally strong first half, with Night Crawling (feat. Billy Idol), Gimme What I Want and WTF Do I Know being other masterpieces besides the two singles so far.

          • Loïc's trying something, but it's hard for him to really re-invent himself or expand into a slightly different territory. Alanis album is alright, "Reasons I Drink" is such a standout for me.

              Hmm... I thought "Sillygomania" was just a "lighter" version of his debut album, which I enjoyed way more. He's definitely someone to watch out, as he's got lots of potential.
              Yes, "Reasons I Drink" is really a standout there!

                Hideaway singer Kiesza had a big breakthrough back in 2014, but disappeared quickly afterwards. In 2020, she finally released her second album Crave, and that turned out as even better than her debut Sound Of A Woman.

                Aura Dione is another great Pop artist who vanished completely from the official charts out there, despite still releasing bops after bops. Fearless Lovers was a great EP, consisting of several singles such as Last Man In The World or Colorblind, that reached #96 on the Year-End Charts 2020. Here’s hope to another new album in 2021, as she recently released a brand new track called Worn Out American Dreams.

                British girl group Little Mix are still a force to be reckoned with in the Pop scene, as Confetti is already their sixth album and they keep smashing in their home country. It’s their third album to make an appearance on my weekly charts and is also their most successful one to date, mostly due to the success for Sweet Melody.

                German YouTube personality Katja Krasavice already decided to dive into the music business back in 2017, but she released some rather silly novelty songs at first. For her debut album Bo$$ Bitch, Katja decided to go a more serious route and mostly recorded some R&B-/Rap-stuff, but still included some Pop and Dance tunes as well. A surprisingly well done body of work. 2021 already looks more promising for her though, as her second studio album Eure Mami just got released and is currently topping my weekly album chart.

                Marko Hietala is mostly known for being part of the Finnish Symphonic Metal band Nightwish, and with them he’s already scored some massive successes not just on my personal chart, but on the charts all over the world. Pyre Of The Black Heart was his solo debut album and turned out as a strong Rock record. Since he just left the band due to health reasons, here’s hope that he at least follows his solo career because it would be worth it.

                  Katy Perry’s sixth studio album Smile also finally came out in 2020 and as expected, she served us some great Pop tunes with this record. Sadly, it’s the album from hers that impressed me the least and after a strong start, I got over this rather quickly.

                  Belgian singer Blanche has represented her country with City Lights at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, where she ended up fourth in the Grand Final. That was a fantastic result for the country, and in 2020, Blanche also finally released her long awaited debut album Empire. Even though her Eurovision smash isn’t on the tracklist, it’s still a well done Synth-Pop album that also deserved some success outside of Belgium.

                  The Weeknd’s latest album After Hours is probably a surprisingly low entry on my countdown, as this is the album that has been smashing on the official charts out there for most of the year, of course due to his monster hit Blinding Lights. Similar to Katy Perry’s Smile, I also loved After Hours a lot during its first few weeks, but somehow got over it rather quickly. I even prefer Beauty Behind The Madness and Starboy over this.

                  Estonian Alt-Pop goddess Kerli finally released her long awaited second studio album Shadow Works in early 2019 and as expected, it was yet another hit for her on my weekly charts. The album also continued to do well in early 2020 and makes the year-end charts for a second year. A fantasticly dark Synth-/Alt-Pop album – a shame that she’s not more known.

                      2020 brought us some fantastic newcomers, and Rina Sawayama is clearly one of the bigger ones. Sawayama is her debut album and had a fantastic start on my weekly charts, but similar to The Weeknd or Katy Perry, Rina’s album also started to fall down rather quickly once the hype died down for me. Still a great album from start to finish and it will be exciting to see what she will release next.

                      All About That Bass singer Meghan Trainor may be struggling on the official charts out there, but 2020 gave her the most successful album to date on my weekly charts, as Treat Myself is her first release to be certified with Gold. It’s a good Pop album with the brilliant Wave (#6 on the Year-End Charts 2019) as a clear standout.

                      Noah Cyrus is the queen of underrated sad Pop tunes, and 2020 proved that once again. The singer has been throwing out singles for a while and with The End Of Everything, it seems like she finally found a sound she’s sticking to and it works perfectly for her.

                        Ava Max is without a doubt one of the most successful newcomers from the past few years, and as seen on the Singles countdown, she scored several big hits in 2020. In Fall, she also finally released her debut album Heaven & Hell that immediately topped the weekly chart. Surprisingly, the album didn’t stick with me for too long, most likely because half of the tracklist already got overplayed a lot. An artist to watch out for sure!

                        Similar to Ava Max, Swedish Heavy Metal band Amaranthe also scored several big hits in 2020, but took a while to finally release their latest album Manifest in late 2020. Due to that, the album also had a strong start but got old surprisingly fast. Still a fantastic record.

                        There were several surprises in 2020 and Adam Lambert’s new album Velvet was definitely one of them. The former American Idol contestant already scored two Gold certified albums early in his career with For Your Entertainment (2010) and Trespassing (2012), but the following releases like The Original High, Velvet: Side A or some stand alone singles all didn’t continue that success. Surprisingly, Velvet was a complete turnover and not only proved to be a real comeback successwise, but was also a great Pop album soundwise.

                        As every year, the compilation for the Eurovision Song Contest also made its impact in 2020. Sadly, the contest was cancelled this year due to the Coronavirus, so the impact was smaller than usual. Especially after the huge success of 2019, where the compilation ended up fifth in the Year-End Charts.

                                Virtual K-Pop group K/DA is a phenomenon that only crossed my attention towards the end of 2020, as they released their debut EP called All Out. Even though K/DA is associated with the game League Of Legends that I never played so far, their music still hit me in a completely unexpected way and this whole EP has been my workout music for many weeks. Gamer music meets K-Pop meets Dance Pop, including some interesting features such as Kim Petras or Madison Beer.

                                Following a rather underwhelming second album campaign for The Thrill Of It All, Sam Smith finally released their long awaited third album Love Goes in 2020. I’ve loved many singles from this, such as Dancing With A Stranger, How Do You Sleep? or more recently, Diamonds (#15 on the Year-End Charts 2020), so I was excited going into this and Sam surely didn’t disappoint. Some great ballads, some fantastic uptempo tunes and Sam’s wonderful vocals all result in a great album, but the best is how Sam finally found their real selves and I’m enjoying it too!

                                Allen/Olzon is a collaboration project by American singer Russell Allen and Swedish singer Anette Olzon. Russell Allen is known in the Metal genre for such collaborations, while Anette Olzon is known as a former Nightwish frontwoman, for her solo stuff, but also for her own project The Dark Element. With all those projects, Anette already scored several big eras on my charts so it was no surprise to see Worlds Apart being yet another success. A great, but sometimes also cheesy Metal album.

                                Dutch Symphonic Metal band Delain already released their sixth album Apocalypse & Chill in early 2020, though this was the very first time I checked out a full album by them – and I was immediately impressed. A great body of work, that was surprisingly Pop-ish. An early highlight of 2020.

                                  Australian band 5 Seconds Of Summer were never really big for me until I randomly decided ot check Calm out in early 2020.

R&B and Rap is still a genre that isn’t the biggest for me personally, but this album offers a lot of great moments and is also very cohesive as a whole body of work. It will be exciting to see if Doja can repeat this success with a new album in 2021.

                                  Following a break of nearly a decade, former Disney singer and actress Ashley Tisdale finally released her long awaited third studio album Symptoms in early 2019 and as expected, it was a smash from the get go and ended up as the most successful album of 2019. Symptoms also kept doing well in 2020, mostly due to her hit Lemons, but also simply due to the fact that I think this is Pop at its best and such a strong effort from start to finish. Fingers crossed she won’t disappear for another decade again.

                                      Taylor Swift opens the Top10 with her surprise album Folklore. This album came out during Summer of 2020 and was very welcomed, as it fit perfectly into the current times. It’s a departure from the pure Pop sound of 1989 or Lover and goes more into an Indie-Folk direction, which was yet another nice change for her. It’s no secret that Taylor does well in singer-songwriter songs and even though Folklore doesn’t offer that one huge hit single, it’s surely among her best albums as a whole body of work. With four consecutive weeks atop the weekly album charts, Folklore is the second longest running top album of 2020, only behind two albums with a tie that are still to be revealed.

                                      Exile (feat. Bon Iver, #123) and Cardigan (#93) made the Singles Year-End Charts 2020. My personal highlights are The 1, Seven, Mad Woman and the two just mentioned singles.

                                      German Pop princess Kim Petras is no stranger to some people on the internet, in fact, she actually gathered a nice fanbase despite having near to zero mainstream success. The singer has released her full-length debut album Clarity already in mid 2019, but it took me until the final week of that year until I finally gave it a chance – and I was immediately blown away. This is how you do a Pop record nowadays. Strong from start to finish. This was also the very first number one album of 2020, and stayed a huge highlight through the whole year.

                                      Icy, Do Me and Personal Hell are my personal standouts on this, though there’s no weak spot at all. Do Me (#52) and Icy (#10) also made the Singles Year-End Charts 2020.

                                      Ever since diving into music for the first time, Selena has been one of my absolute favorite artists ever. I already loved her back in her Disney days and was so happy that her music also clicked with me for so long. Following a massive era for the Revival album and a break that took way too long, the singer finally released her new album Rare in early 2020 and as expected, it was yet another great album from hers. Sadly, the promo was awful, so the whole campaign was cut short, but the music still delivered.

                                      Highlights on this are Rare, Ring, Let Me Get Me, Dance Again, Vulnerable, People You Know and basically all the bonus tracks from Bad Liar to Wolves. Wolves (#431), Dance Again (#276), Boyfriend (#182) and Rare (#53) all also appeared on the Singles Year-End Charts 2020.

                                      It seems like 2020 was a successful year for albums with just one word as their title, as Myopia by Agnes Obel is already the fourth in a row in the Top10 and there are still three more one-word-titles to come. This is the fourth album by the Danish singer-songwriter, and even though it is the only album in the Top10 that hasn’t topped the weekly charts for at least one week, it showed amazing longevity at least. Agnes was more like a piano singer on her debut, but slowly turned into a way more interesting Alt-Pop singer as she proves with Myopia yet again. She keeps getting better with each release in my opinion.

                                      Camera’s Rolling (#275), Island Of Doom (#224) and Broken Sleep (#113) all made the singles countdown in 2020. Island Of Doom and the title track are my personal faves on this, though most of the songs are on a similar level and this is an album that works way better as a whole instead of just picking songs.

                                      British songstress Ellie Goulding has finally released her fourth studio album Brightest Blue in mid 2020 and it’s been yet another fantastic record. Ever since her big international breakthrough with her second album Halcyon, Ellie has become one of my favorite artists and even though she may struggle on the official charts out there, I still think she keeps delivering with her stuff. Ok, fair enough, some singles of Brightest Blue were not it, but most of them are just an addition as Side B on Brightest Blue, the main album has a more deeper sound to it compared to the singles, or also compared to her previous album Delirium. This got released while I was on vacation in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where I actually made a magical experience while listening to this that I’ll probably never forget, so this album already has a place in my heart.

                                      With Close To Me (#427), Hate Me (#231), Power (#117), Flux (#115), Worry About Me (#103) and Love I’m Given (#83), a bunch of songs from this record also appeared on the Singles Year-End Charts 2020. Meanwhile, How Deep Is Too Deep is my clear standout on this, followed by Flux, Love I’m Given, Woman and Bleach.

                                      • Glad you mention "Mad Woman" is one of the highlights on 'Folklore'. I strongly agree on that. And as it never gets mentioned anywhere, I always feel like it's underrated.

                                        You may remember that Ellie used to smash on my charts a few years ago, I absolutely loved Halcyon Days. I didn't like her stuff after that era that much though (a few songs here and there). I like Brightest Blue but I rarely come back to it. "Love I'm Given" is amazing, though!

                                          Glad we share our love for "Mad Woman". It was one of the songs that already stood out on my first spin of the album and it remained a highlight ever since. I'm actually surprised not many people have this among their faves.. so yeah, it really is underrated.

                                          Yes, I know how big she's been for you but I also know that "Delirium" didn't do much for you in comparison. As much as I enjoy "Brightest Blue", it's still far away from the "Halcyon" era for me as well. Still a great body of work though!

                                            Following the monster hit Without Me, all eyes were on Halsey and her third studio album Manic. I have a weird relationship with her, because I thought she’s very unsympathetic during her debut era, but suddenly completely clicked with me during her second era – hopeless fountain kingdom even ended up #3 on the Year-End Charts 2017 and still made the Top20 the following year. Without Me was an obvious smash for me as well, but most other pre-album singles of Manic didn’t fully click with me so I had mixed emotions going into this. Luckily, the whole album didn’t disappoint. Yes, there are some other smashes that are missing on this, but overall, I think this is her most cohesive record to date and I like that even Without Me fits well to the whole project, and isn’t just that one monster hit that’s just there for the streaming units.

                                            The singles Without Me and You Should Be Sad may be obvious standouts on this, but I also really enjoy Alanis‘ Interlude and 3 AM. Finally // Beautiful Stranger (#379), Graveyard (#374), Without Me (#225), Clementine (#176) and especially You Should Be Sad (#13) also made some noise on the singles countdown.

                                            Coming in fourth is Chromatica, the latest studio album by Lady Gaga. Fans, including myself, were asking for the singer to finally hit the Dance-Pop route again and she did exactly that with this album. A fantastic Dance-Pop album, even the previously obligate ballad that every other album by Gaga had hasn’t found its way onto this release, which was cool. With seven weeks atop the weekly charts, Chromatica is tied with another album as the longest running top album of 2020, plus this is her highest appearance on one of my year-end countdowns since she occupied the Top2 with The Fame Monster and The Fame back in 2010, when the album charts only just started.

                                            It’s also worth a shoutout how the fourth most successful album of 2020 was already certified with 2x Platinum compared to one album that did it in the whole years of 2019 or 2018, while none even went there back in 2016. Only shows how 2020 gave us some really strong albums!

                                            The album spawned three singles, and they were all very successful on the singles countdown with 911 (#23), Stupid Love (#9) and Rain On Me (#5). Meanwhile, my personal highlight is clearly album opener Alice.

                                            Canadian mastermind Grimes finally released her long awaited fifth studio album Miss Anthropocene in early 2020 and wow, what a masterpiece! The era already started with the single We Apprecite Power in early 2018, and her previous album Art Angels got released in late 2015, so this album was definitely long overdue and it surely didn’t disappoint. Art Angels was the first time I got to hear Grimes and while I already loved this album a lot, Miss Anthropocene is just on a completely different level for me. There are so many genres on this – from Industrial to Synth- and Electro-Pop to Dark Wave music – and it all fits so well together. There are some really crazy moments, but also some heavenly ones on this record. Since I’m a huge Kerli fan, Miss Anthropocene by Grimes felt like a continuation and slightly better executed version to Kerli’s Shadow Works from 2019.

                                            Even though most singles from the album came out prior 2020, Grimes still appeared on the singles countdown with Violence (#359), We Appreciate Power (#154), Delete Forever (#86), So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth (#75) and My Name Is Dark (#58). All songs are also on a similar level on this record, though from the non singles New Gods and Before The Fever clearly stand out for me.

                                              Ranking in the YEC 2019: #3


                                              Lindsey Stirling is without a doubt one or even the biggest star on my weekly charts ever since her breakthrough in early 2013. Artemis makes the Top3 of my year-end countdown for a second time in a row, just like her album Brave Enough already did (#3 in 2016, #2 in 2017). Overall, this is already her sixth year with a Top10 placement, as she also did it in 2013 (Lindsey Stirling hit #1) and 2014 (Shatter Me was #3, Lindsey Stirling #8), with just missing out doing it in 2018 (Warmer In The Winter ended up #11).

                                              A mainly instrumental album with Lindsey’s signature violin play paired up with different genres, especially Dance and Pop, still works for me as it seems. A year and a half after its release, I’d even say this is her best album to date, as it really takes you on a journey, sounds very cohesive, but also has its clear standouts. Having Amy Lee and Elle King as the only features also works perfectly.

                                              2020 was also yet another successful year for the violinist on the singles countdown, as Underground (#350), Guardian (#97), Artemis (#85), Til The Light Goes Out (#50), Between Twilight (#25) and Sleepwalking (#4) all appeared from this album. Meanwhile, besides the just mentioned singles, Love Goes On And On (feat. Amy Lee) and Foreverglow are further big standouts on the album.

                                              …and the most successful album of 2020 is HUMAN. :||: NATURE. by Nightwish!

                                              Nightwish is a Symphonic Metal band originally from Finland, though nowadays two third of the band are from other countries with lead singer Floor Jansen being Dutch and multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley being from the UK. The band already released their debut album Angels Fall First back in 1997, but only started to be successful on several European charts with their fifth album Once in 2004. With around ten million copies sold worldwide, Nightwish is the most successful Finnish band ever and they’re also known for having had already three different female frontsingers with Tarja Turunen (1996 – 2005), Anette Olzon (2007 – 2012) and Floor Jansen (since 2013). Released in April 2020, HUMAN. :||: NATURE. is the bands ninth studio album and first since Endless Forms Most Beautiful got released in early 2015, so basically a comeback after a long break.

                                              With each new album, Nightwish has been evolving their sound and I think they really mastered it with HUMAN. :||: NATURE.. As the title suggest, the theme is humanity and nature, with all of its beauty and flaws. Symphonic Metal is a known sub-genre in the Metal genre, with several bands being part of that, and HUMAN. :||: NATURE. is one of the most Symphonic Metal sounding albums I have ever heard.

                                              The album has two parts, the first being the regular album, and the second being called All The Works Of Nature Which Adorn The World, basically 30 minutes of instrumental songs split in eight chapters that work absolutely perfectly while taking a walk in the forest and just to calm down. While I don’t use the second half as often as I listen to the regular album, I still think this as a whole is Nightwish’s most cohesive record to date, and it’s honestly near perfection for me.

                                              With 2,373 spins in 2020, HUMAN. :||: NATURE. is the most played album of the year with a gap of 400 spins to Chromatica, the second most played album of the year. From the main part of the album, Tribal and Procession were played the least, but still 130 times each. Even all All The Works Of Nature Which Adorn The World songs from the second part of the album got played around 60 times each, only showing how strong the whole project was and how it kept appearing on my playlist. Despite the fact that all songs got played a lot, the album still has some clear standouts for me, that are album opener Music, the lead single Noise, the epic Shoemaker, and the hymn Pan.

                                              HUMAN. :||: NATURE. spawned three singles with Noise (#1 on the Year-End Charts 2020), Harvest (#47) and How’s The Heart (#45). Since the invetion of my weekly album charts, HUMAN. :||: NATURE. is already their second album topping a year-end countdown following Endless Forms Most Beautiful, that did it in 2015, making Nightwish the very first artist to top the Album Year-End Charts more than once. They also made the Top10 in 2011 with Walking In The Air – The Greatest Ballads (#4) and in 2012 with Imaginaerum (#2).

Due to Corona, all concerts were cancelled in 2020, so there are nominees this year. There may be a special surprise for this category coming up once the winners will be revealed though.
