Our Best Rock Albums Of 2020 looks at another year in rock and roll in which classic rock legends once again filled the top 10 albums of the year. Classic rock fans may think they were looking at the year 1975 when they see a top 10 filled by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Paul McCartney. However, 2020 also saw the return of Maria Mckee with her first solo album release in thirteen years., And what a sensational album it was. One of the year’s biggest surprises was the release of Cat Stevens’ Tea for the Tillerman 2. The year also presented fans with another great album from Fiona Apple as well as killer records from Stone Temple Pilots, Blue Oyster Cult, The Pretenders,  Willie Nile, Ozzy Osbourne, Lucinda Williams and the return of Huey Lewis And The News.
