TOP 10 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR - NUMBER 4 Transit Young New England This album got a huge amount of stick when it was released and I still don’t really understand why. Sure, it’s not Transit of a few years ago but bands evolve. It’s not exactly been a great year for Boston either and in many ways these songs are made more poignant by their timing and context. ("Boston never drinks alone") It’s one of the only albums I actually forked out to get on vinyl and that should tell you enough. I love it a great deal.
I’m finding it impossible to order my top 8. Transit have made what could easily be my album of the year any other year, but the songwriting in what’s to come just edges it out. I think it’s a summer album that was released slightly too late, silly really.
