108 The Last Hero - Alter Bridge
109 High Anxiety - Thom Sonny Green
110 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.

111 Mind of Mine - Zayn
112 7/27 - Fifth Harmony

It's a versatile album. I like it

113 Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not - Dinosaur Jr.
114 I Like It When You Sleep, for You are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975
115 The Getaway - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is at least top 20, I can't believe this list

What so low - emilk

116 Perfectly Imperfect - Grace VanderWaal

It is the only cd I bought last year. For that matter, it is the only cd I have bought in the last 20 years.

Very popular album, "beautiful thing" has been used in commercials and T.V. shows and "Light the sky" was used by Google for their best of search for 2016.

117 Lost 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

118 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!

119 Misadventures - Pierce the Veil
120 Lil Boat - Lil Yachty
