As this decade is approaching its end it is time for a little reflection on all the great music we experienced over the course of it. Of course, this is NOT an ultimate and universal Top 100 list. It simply can't be but these are the songs you should definitely give a spin before the decade is over. The first 25 tracks include Frank Ocean, Flying Lotus, David Bowie, Vampire Weekend, Lorde, The Weeknd, FKA Twigs and more.
Ten years of music, ten personal stories. The writers of NBHAP are given the opportunity to resume about the records that excited them the most during the past decade. This is a subjective reflection rather than an ultimate conclusion. NBHAP head Norman makes the start.

So, without further ado please find the fifty albums that impressed us the most during the past 12 months right here and feel happily invited to fall in love with them as well.
