I think we can all agree that 2020 was a f**king year in general. But apart from the usual madness in the world plus a pandemic, we have at least some musical highlights in the last year. If you haven’t heard one of these albums yet, it’s about time you do. The following albums are the ones with the best rating results from our reviews.
While the best album in 2019 was still an album to celebrate and have fun with, in 2020 it is rather a very very gloomy record. Jan Weisbrot aka ‘Age Zero‘ has once again captivated me with his album ‘Age Zero III‘ and put me in a thoughtful, melancholic mood. I’m sure that many people can’t understand this high rating, because it really takes a lot of effort to listen to this album. Right away you won’t find a hit for the radio or an earworm with a catchy melody. No, the album is bulky and demanding, but when you get into it, it is all the more beautiful.
The extremely honest, open interview with Age Zero is also one of my highlights of 2020 on Electrozombies. In our society, revealing your heart makes you vulnerable, but I see that as a strength and makes Jan all the more sympathetic. Even though it is hinted at in the interview, I hope that this is not the last album by Age Zero, or rather Jan Weisbrot. Thank you Jan for this wonderful album.
