Former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has made a new statement named ‘2019 Year End Wrap-Up’ via his verified and official Facebook account.

Mike Portnoy has written a very long statement to reveal his favorite albums, best movies, and TV shows from 2019.

He said that it was actually hard for him to narrow each category down to just 10 entries. Nevertheless, he managed to prepare his list for the followers.

Firstly, you can read his statement:

“Well, this decade certainly wrapped up with a bang…
IMO, it was hands-down the strongest year of the decade with the most quality albums, films and TV that it was actually hard for me to narrow each category down to just 10 entries!

I will be posting my decade-end list as well in the coming days but in the meantime, here is what I was listening to and watching throughout the past 12 months since my last list…”
