Time Out's Best of 2021 Part III

Best of 2021

The following is a list of nothing but the best–singles, albums, covers, comps, reissues–from 2021, in one spot. Our hope for this roundup of 100 picks is to inspire you to seek out physical copies of that which you fall in love with in order to find more opportunities to disconnect with the digital world in place of reestablishing an aural connection in the physical one. You can sample this list on Spotify to find something to love.
