2021 ”Best of the Rest” (Album Divers top 10 albums of the year)

On this final episode of 2021, Trevor and Shane each select 5 albums  and together compile their top 10 albums of the year. The ground rules were simple and were the same this year as last year:

1. They couldn't select an album from 2021 that already had a "deep dive" episode.

2. They wouldn't be ranking their top 5 or the final top 10 in any particular order

3. They couldn't both select the same album.

The one new addition this year was at the end of the episode, Shane and Trevor would each announce their #1 album of the year.

With these self-imposed rules in place, Trevor and Shane took turns sharing their picks for the year one by one. The list is as follows:

Trevor: Maximo Park - Nature Always Wins, Pom Poko - Cheater, Serpentwithfeet - Deacon, The War on Drugs - I Don't Live Here Anymore, Idles - Crawler

Shane: Manchester Orchestra - The Million Masks of God, Joe Pug - The Diving Sun, The Killers - Pressure Machine, Houndmouth - Good For You, Lord Huron - Long Lost
