Tuesday Tunes: Favorite studio album by year since 1970

Source: fineartamerica.com

As a follow-up to last weeks’ list, here are my favorite albums by year since 1970. The list identifies only studio albums, not greatest hits, live, compilation, or similar types of albums. For only two years (1990 and 1999), I could not come up with a favorite. One year (2020), two albums tied for my favorite.
