2023 was a great year for music.  Check our picks for best albums of 2023.  As you know, our musical taste differs vastly between the three of us.  Susanna has an eclectic taste in music, Susie is nearly all metal, and Jer is all over the place.  There is one thing about us…we all have very strong opinions when it comes to music, AND we all LOVE music.  And, as usual, we only had ONE on all three lists.  Who do you most agree with?  Who did we miss?
