Published 8th December


The Top 50 Albums Of 2020

Another year over (just about), and another one in which there were fantastic new albums and lavish reissues. We take a look at Classic Rock’s Top 50 Albums Of The Year and the standout reissues. We talk to some of the artists whose albums made our lists, or for whom 2020 has been one to remember (other than for being the year of the curse of covid, that is), including…


AC/DC: The best hard rock’n’roll band in the world are back. We talk to Angus and Johnno about their high-voltage new album.

No one wanted a pandemic to come along and tip 2020 on its head. But without the lockdown we were forced into, The Struts’ new album wouldn’t exist.


In 2020 Stone Temple Pilots crafted a mostly light-touch acoustic album that could well be one of their best.


UFO’s classic Strangers In The Night captured a great rock band at their peak, But by the time it was released, UFO were no longer the band who’d made it.


Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich on lockdown, missing live music, and what the future holds for the band.


Sweden’s melodic rock torch bearers H.e.a.t talk Eurovision, Def Leppard and the importance of ‘perfect imperfections’.


With his farewell album, prog legend Fish is signing off with the best record of his solo career.


With their new album The Pretenders return to guitar-based rock’n’roll and come back with a bang.


Other features include FM, Mark Kelly, Diamond Head, Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, Phil Campbell, George Thorogood… and not forgetting the biggest, loudest rock reviews section on the planet. Issue 283 on sale December 8. Got it? Get it.
