It's been another busy year for Tin Can Review on London's Resonance FM.
A huge thanks to all the songwriters, musicians, labels and promoters who have
shared their music with us over the last 12 months. The quality has again reached epic proportions but after careful consideration we've managed to compile our annual list of the Top 10 Album releases. Tough decisions have been made but looking back these are the albums which have encouraged repeat listens and broke new ground for the artists. More music can be found at TinCanReview.com but below is our list.
Have a Happy New Year folks, see you in 2017!
