Album Of The Year 2020 – Jury Voting Results

1.) Cosmic Shuffling – “Magic Rocket Ship”

Exceptionally fun and irreverent ska album. It’s like The Aquabats for the traditional crowd.

2.) Bad Operation – “Bad Operation” 

The most important ska album to come along in decades. Pushing things forward, New Tone is the real deal.

3.) Boomtown United – “Tuffer Than I”

 St. Louis Two-tone masters knocking it out of the park on their debut album. Each song is better than the last.

4.) Spy Kids – “Covert Action”      

The album I never thought would happen. Nearly 30 years since their last recording and every bit as good.

5.) T-Killa – “Awareness”      

Infectious two-tone sounds by this German group. An early favorite that never wore out its welcome.
