Little surprise here. The Anonymous 4 library has a lot of tracks, and this year most of them bled into December, instead of NaNo-ing November. Adrian von Ziegler is a new arrival to my charts, who has got all it takes to become a long-term favourite. But TSO, as usual, swept the board, because you just can’t beat those tunes, even 20 years later.
The holidays are times with little music, as I get little quiet time, so I’m looking forward to school resuming and leaving me free to explore my cache of new music. Next Monday, we will take a look at the year’s charts, and then head off into 2017 ready for old and new favourites to take their place on the list.
