  1. Ouch! Not even in the top 50. Good we all have our own opinions though 🙂 I thought Alison had made a lovely album and it has had 2 or 3 exceptional reviews. I still love your blog Happy Christmas Deirdre



  2. As I have explained right at the top of every Festive Fifty I have done, this is very much my personal subjective top 50 rather than an attempt at an objective “critic’s” top 50. These are the albums of 2016 that have brought me most pleasure and not a “Best of…” Yes, we all have our own opinions. And Hallelujah to that! Happy Christmas to you, Deirdre.

  3. Thanks Peter – a really interesting perspective on the year’s releases, many of which I have been lucky to enjoy. Looking forward to more excellent reviews and discoveries next year. Season’s greetings, Tim.

  4. Thanks for all your reviews Peter – I regularly buy based on your opinion and have yet to be disappointed .
