TEA Favourites - ALBUMS

Difficult second albums, break through first albums and the illusive 'dance music' album. Before I raise the curtain on TEA's top 15 I must first champion two releases which could have easily made the list. The first being Forest Swords and the Dagger Paths EP (not to be confused with the Wu-Tang's Gza and his legendary liquid Swords LP). Although Dagger Paths is an EP, its 6 tracks hold enough weight for it to make TEA's honour roll as to does Adam X's Traversable Wormhole project which saw one of techno musics most exciting remix packages to date.

This aside TEA presents its top 15 albums for the year.
