Hellboy’s Top 10 albums of 2020

Hellboy’s Top 10 albums of 2020

Happy Invasion Day everyone! A few weeks ago I gave you Fourtheye’s Top 10, and now it’s my turn. There were plenty of cool albums this year, and this time around my Top 10 aligns somewhat with yours, with a number of shared albums. This year, I reckon it was a pretty decent one for releases.
