The Noise Pollution “top 10’s of 2019”


What a year 2019 has been!  So many great albums have been released, some of which were long awaited (looking at you, Tool!)

Likewise, there have been a truckload of excellent films released.  Whether it be the final chapter in a four decade long saga, the climax/new beginnings to the Marvel Cinematic Universe or something less action packed like the triumphant return of Eddie Murphy for Netflix.

With that said, it’s difficult to put together a list of favourites, but the Noise Pollution team have all given it a go….
