HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2020!

 2020 will be remembered for many things.  

Probably most of those things won't be music.  

But, that's unfortunate, because there were some really good releases in this crazy year.  As we do every year, we'll count down our top 10 albums of 2020!

HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2019!

We've been admittedly a bit quiet this year on Helping Hands Rock Reviews as we've had our hands in other charitable ventures.  But, that doesn't mean we haven't been paying attention to the great music that has come out in 2019!

As you're about to see from our choices for the top 10 albums of the year, we found great music in a variety of genres in 2019.  So, let's get right to it and count these great albums down from #10 to #1

HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2018

To be frank, in some years, it's tough for us to identify even eight albums worthy of making it to a top 10 list.  Not in 2018!  There were probably a couple of dozen that had legit chances of making it.

Lots of awesome music is a good problem to have.  But, alas, a top 10 list won't make much sense if 24 albums make it.  So, after serious debate, mathematical formulas, and both logical and emotional tiebreakers, we give you Helping Hands Rock Reviews Top 10 Albums of 2018!

HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2017

It must have been a great year for music.

Here at Helping Hands Rock Reviews headquarters, we had a hard time narrowing our annual best album list down to just 10. In fact, we had to go to a fourth tie-breaker to fill the last two slots!

But we did it!  So, without further ado, here are our top 10 albums of 2017!

Meet The SuperSharer: Steve C!

This last week of Share Pittsburgh Music Month, we've been spotlighting our SuperSharers.  SuperSharers are passionate fans of Pittsburgh music who have diligently planned out the music videos they'd be sharing throughout this incredible month and have gone through great lengths to help us track the impact of videos tagged with #SharePGHMusicMonth.

So, we're closing out the month by introducing you to the last - but certainly not least - of the SuperSharers.  Actually, saving this guy for last is like saving the grand finale for the end of a fireworks display.  His untiring support for Pittsburgh music has become somewhat legendary.

Meet The SuperSharer: Don F!

Today is the next-to-last day of Share Pittsburgh Music Month.  So, this afternoon, we introduce you to our next-to-last SuperSharer.

If you've been following along, SuperSharers have made the 2017 edition of #SharePGHMusicMonth that much bigger and better.  They've preplanned the music videos they'd be sharing and provided that list to us.  As a result, we've been able to track the 100,000+ new views that Pittsburgh artists have received in the month!

Allow us to introduce you to SuperSharer, Don F.

Meet The SuperSharer: Tim D!

Yes, we have yet ANOTHER SuperSharer to introduce you to!  Isn't that awesome?

If you don't know what a SuperSharer is, check on the posts from the last few days to learn how these passionate music fans gave extra fuel to the #SharePGHMusicMonth train!

Today's SuperSharer is Tim D!

Tim is the drummer for the band, Unbroken Soul.

Why does Tim love Pittsburgh music so much?

Meet The SuperSharer: Nicole N!

Today, it is a pleasure to introduce you to our fourth SuperSharer!

In case you're just tuning in, SuperSharers are the most active participants in Share Pittsburgh Music Month (#SharePGHMusicMonth).  Each of them had provided us with an advance list of music videos they'd be sharing during the month.  This enabled us to track and measure the campaign's success.  And, d*rn, it's been successful!

Today's SuperSharer is Nicole N!  I met Nicole through the oh-so-excellent Punksburgh blog/site.

Here's a little more about her, in her own articulate words...
