The Best Albums of 1989: Honorable Mentions

We hope that you enjoyed our feature on The Best Albums of 1989. If you happened to miss it - please click here.

There were so many great releases that didn't get included in the Best Albums of 1989 feature - since we limited ourselves to the Top 10. In this post you will find 12 more albums that Sarah and I selected that needed to be represented. A track from each album is added to the playlist at the bottom - and we threw in 60 extra songs that we thoroughly enjoy. We hope you do too! So without further delay, here are our Honorable Mentions for 1989.
