84 Magma - Gojira Magma - Gojira
85 Soul Searchin' - Jimmy Barnes Soul Searchin' - Jimmy Barnes
86 The North Corridor - Chevelle The North Corridor - Chevelle
87 Joanne - Lady Gaga Joanne - Lady Gaga

You can never be bored of Lady Gaga. You never know in advance what her next album will sound like. With Joanne, she took it to the next level: you never know what the next song will sound like. And that's awesome. This woman will be considered a legend by the time she's 80.

Above Anti, This is Acting and the soundtrack to Suicide Squad? Disgrace. This is clearly a great transition from pop to folk. - Swellow

88 Paradise Lost - Delta Heavy Paradise 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

89 Mind of Mine - Zayn Mind of Mine - Zayn
90 A Sailor's Guide to Earth - Sturgill Simpson A Sailor's Guide to Earth - Sturgill Simpson

This is too low because this album is being ignored by people who like good music because it's country. This album isn't your average country album, sturgill does such a great job of mixing real country along with a bit of soul. This guy is saving actual country music. Once you hear this guy he will help you realize there is great country music.

Truly the next big thing in country music. - djpenquin999

92 I Like It When You Sleep, for You are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975 I Like It When You Sleep, for You are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975
93 The Brightest Void - Tarja The Brightest Void - Tarja

Tarja reinvents herself on this album, the first volume of a two part series with the second, "The Shadow Self", due in early August. It features a variety of styles, with symphonic metal only being present on the Within Temptation collaboration "Paradise", ranging from pop rock to almost musical touches, also some country rock, alternative and even a bit of Björk-like electronica. Fans and critics alike may be devided over this new styles, calling it unfocused, but to me it is Tarja's most creative, inventive and varied album (and, with 9 tracks lasting for about 44 minutes, it has no filler tracks). - Martin_Canine

94 This is What the Truth Feels Like - Gwen Stefani This is What the Truth Feels Like - Gwen Stefani

Why is this album not in the top five? Like every, I mean EVERY, song is so good!
