1. Thåström - Beväpna dig med vingar
- 34 years since debuting with his first band Thåström is still evolving, still burning, still refusing to stand still, still refusing to rely on past glories. This is the best solo record of his career and easily one of his three best albums of all time.
2. Mount Eerie - Clear Moon
- Phil graced us with numerous releases this year, among them two albums, with this one being the best one. Phil continues to be one of most interesting lyricists out there. And one of those who really gets life.
3. Mark Lanegan Band - Blues Funeral
