Has 2020 had enough (good) music?

I've started listening to the first November albums that have arrived in my inbox, which signals to me the music year is quickly nearing its end. That prompted me to take a look at my running list to start putting some albums in order. As I was doing so, I noticed that as I was getting toward the end of the top ten, I was really struggling with the choices. Not because I couldn't put one over the other, but because they're albums I like, sometimes like quite a bit, but I don't 'love' all of them.

So the question for today is, given the oddness of this year, and the number of albums that got delayed, are you finding as many albums as usual?

I'll wind up listening to roughly the same number as usual by the end of the year, but I do think there is something lacking among them. I'm not sure if that's a lack of great albums, or if it's a lack of albums that I personally connect to. This year, more than most, I don't know how people who make Top Fifty or Top One Hundred lists manage to do it.
