My word of the year is plurality: 2019 was a complex year on many levels. Equal interpretations of reality are officialy dead and we’re all witnessing the realization of multiverse. Specifically in music we can have vast preferences, appreciating approaches in sharp contrast between them.

IMHO it’s impossible to make an absolute and unique list, so I prefer to choose 5 macro-areas and then make different specific sublists. Have a good trip!
