61The Beautiful Game - Vulfpeck
62Aa - Baauer

I feel this should be in the top 20. Baauer is one of the best things to happen to trap music in a while - ProPanda

63Vibe - Fler

It's amazing how Fler evolved. When he started in the early 2000s, he was one of the first big German rappers who had mainstream attention. He was an authentic street rapper, but had little skill, he barely rhymed words and he sometimes came out unintentionally funny. He had several moderately successful albums over the years but was always overshadowed by other rappers. In 2016, he came back with this massive album and all of a sudden was on top again. It's a perfectly produced record with real content that was well performed, he has a great flow now that was lacking on older records. The intense feud with Kollegah (propably the best German rapper of all time) pushed him to a whole new level, "Vibe" is not only a good rap album, it has serously good music and is very melodic, and it's like a look into Fler's mind. He said he wanted this album to be nothing less than a masterpiece, and he succeeded. You can really feel the "Vibe" in each song. - Martin_Canine

64Gore - Deftones
65The Astonishing - Dream Theater

The first Dream Theater album to reach number one on the US Billboard Rock Chart.

I Can't believe the horrible Kanye West is above this flawless beauty. - Metalmaniakkk

How the heck is this so low? It's their first album to reach number one on Billboard.

This seriously shouldn't be so low.

66Starboy - The Weeknd
67For All Kings - Anthrax
68Lost In Forever - Beyond the Black

Not only were Beyond the Black the most promising newcomers last year, the follow up to their debut, "Lost in Forever", has the chance to become the best album of 2016 as well. As I write this, it's May, so there is still a lot to be released, but I'm sure Beyond the Black's second masterpiece is without a doubt going to be an album I'll be listening to for a very long time without it losing any of its magic. - Martin_Canine

69Cloud Nine - Kygo
70Lil Boat - Lil Yachty
71Islah - Kevin Gates
72The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser - Rob Zombie
73Case/Lang/Veirs - Case/Lang/Veirs
74Magma - Gojira
75Soul Searchin' - Jimmy Barnes
76Paradise Lost - Delta Heavy

Delta Heavy have always intrigued me, with heavy dnb and dubstep remixes of already catchy songs, and combining that style with funky house, gives them an experimental reputation that iften has great effect. But only now are we getting a full-on album, and I really don't know what to say. Delta Heavy, despite having different styles of music, have always made me think of Nero, with their weirdness but skill to put unlikely attributes together. And Nero have so far released two albums which they claim to tell post-apocalyptic thrillers when the tracks are put together. And that totally makes sense, but you don't get a full sense of what they envision. I don't know if Paradise Lost is doing the same thing, but as I listen, it does also seem to be telling you a story. According to my imagination running wild as I listen, I picture that this is what is going through someone's mind as they are losing their grip on life, perhaps the black hole is a metaphor for an overwhelming depression, ...more - PositronWildhawk
