Best Albums of 2016anthonybecerra831
The Top Ten
I can't believe it's been over a year already. This album tops every album on this list by a lot. It's the most beautiful mixture of uplifting music and a hint of a regretful atmosphere. That's at least how I see it. David made sure we would never forget him by releasing this swan song with very limited time left in this universe. He didn't get the chance to bathe in all the love and support his long time and newcomer fans showed it. That time was abruptly cut short by a curse named cancer. But Major Tom, Starman, Ziggy Stardust, or whatever other alias he is going as right now, we miss you buddy. Thank you for everything.
Great album, great singer.
Bowie is one of the all time greats and his music will live on for the rest of eternity!
'Girl Loves Me' is the most underrated song of the album and maybe one of Bowie's most underrated ever!
Blackstar Gave Me Nightmares, But In A Good Way - SamThePenguinV 8 Comments
Perfect. Innovative, familiar, dark, brooding, experimental, accessible. One of the best works by the best band ever. Definitely their most beautiful. It sounds like one big 52 minute lullaby. Timeless.
Best album by Radiohead = Best album ever
This album is really boring in my opinion. It might grow on me but I'm not a fan of this for now. - Metalmaniakkk
Their best besides In Rainbows, OK Computer, Kid A and The BendsV 4 Comments
You may like or hate this album but I personally love it. Not one of Kanye's best but definitely better than Yeezus, 808s, and Cruel Summer - Mcgillacuddy
Who even is radiohead, kanye a hip hop genius. end of.
A Tribe Called Quest brings it back better than ever after years of silence. Probably the best rap album of the year, BUY IT - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I was blown away when I heard this album. I just love this album. - Mumbizz01V 1 Comment
This album blew my mind. So underrated
I thought she wouldn't be able to top the self-titled album, but the queen surprises me time and time again. An album that is solace to women who have been cheated on and empowerment to African American women. It blends R&B, rock, country and other genres. This is the best album of the year. Sadly, there's a chance that she won't win Album Of The Year because Adele's 25 is eligible this year as well. Adele is a great singer but I feel 25 was just a rehash of 21. Almost every song was a slow song and was all about love lost. It worked on 21 because no one else had been doing something like that. But now it's tiresome. Beyonce shows raw emotion in this album and the slow songs such as SANDCASTLES are more powerful because you can truly hear the pain in her voice. The standout however is definitely Freedom ft Kendrick Lamar. It is a powerful R&B anthem with vocal acrobatics and a fiery rap verse from Kendrick. I'm the type of guy who loves FOB, P! ATD, My Chemical Romance, TOP etc. But ...more - PopPunkKid101
Amazing album. She finally makes up for her lack of talent she had in her last albums. - Swellow
I think I'm entitled to make this call, because I listen to only classic rock. I've listened to a bunch of albums this year - Blue & Lonesome by TRS, Moon Shaped Pool by Radiohead, Coloring Book by Chance, Pablo by Kanye, Untitled by Kendrick, this, and, of course, David Bowie's Blackstar.
Like I said, I only listen to classic rock, so I think that when I say that this album is the best album of 2016, you better believe it.
And don't tell me about Blackstar. I'm sure David Bowie would agree with me. - epicness2099
Nice blend of 80s Metallica and the Load era.
This deserves the 2nd spot just after Bowie's Blackstar.
This album just tops number 1 for me. - Mumbizz01
Needs to be number 1 - christangrant
This album is pure glory! The riffs are some of the best I've heard - NikBrusk
Megadeth's best album since United Abominations
Not even top 50 worthy. - WonkeyDude98
Great Album - christangrantV 1 Comment
I'm starting to think that people are insulting this album even though they haven't actually listened to it, they just assumed after hearing the song Work, that it wasn't good. - anewman
The hell is this garbage doing in the Top 10?
Why is this above Megadeth's Dystopia? Today's generation!
This album is fantastic and definitely deserves a Grammy or something - Mcgillacuddy
One of the best and most underrated rap albums out there!
One of the most satisfying feelings in the world is when one of your favorite bands go back to their roots. After Uno, Dos and Tre I thought green day was no more but boy was I wrong. This after "Blackstar" and "A Moon Shaped Pool" is the best album of this year. - 12cc
Dude, this album is awesome, from Still Breathing to Revolution Radio to Bang Bang. Bang Bang is my favorite song in this album. - AnimeDrawer
Does everyone always forget Demolition existed? People compare this to the trilogy 24/7, there was something in between you know! - ProPanda
Though I Have Been A Fan Of Green Day In The Past, This Album Has Some Of The MOST Cliche Lyrics Of 2016. - SamThePenguinV 3 Comments
awful - Jiorl
When the leftovers that weren't good enough to be on To Pimp A Butterfly are the best rap album of 2015 hands down. 8/10 - WonkeyDude98
This year was full of terrible rap albums, but this is one of the few exceptions. Long live Kendrick!
Kendrick Releases B-Sides. Still Better Than Views By Drake - SamThePenguin
I'm guessing there's not many fans of Weezer on this site. In that case allow me to vote this up for it is one of the best Weezer albums since Pinkerton. - cjWriter1997
This is one of Death Grip's best albums since NO LOVE DEEP WEB. - Mumbizz01
Aw man, I still need to listen to this! - djpenquin999
A compilation album shouldn't be on this list at all
Not Top 10 worthy at all. - djpenquin999
I'm conflicted on whether Blackstar still is the best album of 2015. Mainly because this masterpiece exists. - WonkeyDude98
