Best Albums of 2016

101 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.

102 Mind of Mine - Zayn
103 Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not - Dinosaur Jr.
104 I Like It When You Sleep, for You are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975
105 The Getaway - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This far down? You've gotta be kidding. It's up there with Revolution Radio and Blackstar to me.

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

What so low - emilk

106 Skeleton Tree - Nick Cave
107 Piece by Piece Remixed - Kelly Clarkson
108 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

109 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!

110 Misadventures - Pierce the Veil
111 Lil Boat - Lil Yachty
112 Aggressive - Beartooth V 1 Comment
113 Blood Money - Dope
114 Imagica - The Birthday Massacre

You know you have an exceptional band when a collection of 11 demos sounds three times as good as an average band's regular studio albums. It bothers me this amazing group gets so little attention and airplay. - Martin_Canine

115 Glory Days - Little Mix V 1 Comment
116 Fire on the Floor - Beth Hart
117 24k Magic - Bruno Mars
118 You Want It Darker - Leonard Cohen
119 Winter's Gate - Insomnium
120 Violet Cry - Garnidelia
