This album is badass. Not a single bad song on it - Mcgillacuddy

It should say

We got it from Here... Thank You 4 Your service- A Tribe Called Quest.

Admin, could you fix? - ProPanda

2 Revolution Radio - Green Day

I accidently put this on the list again. Sorry ProPanda. I did not see this on the list. Anyways, good album, it did not disappoint me. Hardwired is also a good album as well.

Yes. There last album (those uno, dos, mos, tos or whatever) wasn't very good. I though that's it. They're done. But this albums was very good. - zxm

3 4Ever - Prince
4 A Moon Shaped Pool - Radiohead

Don't mind me, just gotta add two of my favorite albums of this year on here. - cjWriter1997

5 Boxes - Goo Goo Dolls
6 Blackstar - David Bowie

It's not really a "comeback" album, it's actually a swan album.
But yes, it's an amazing album none-the-less. Happy that he left us on this note. - Swellow

7 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica

Deserves To Be Number 1 It Was A Great Album Well Worth The Wait - christangrant

8 The Stage - Avenged Sevenfold

The way the band promoted and released this album was really risk-taking for the band. However I loved this album a little more than I thought I would. - cjWriter1997

9 Run the Jewels 3 - Run the Jewels

Exactly, if they've been making consistent releases for the past few years, how is this a comeback? - SwagFlicks

That's like saying Avicii has been around as a legitimate artist because he just remixes his own songs - ProPanda

If you count Meow The Jewels (which is the greatest thing ever)...they kinda did. - WonkeyDude98

Wasn't really a comeback, to be honest. - SwagFlicks

Well Run The Jewels 2 came in 2014, and they didn't really release in 2015, except for the remix album and spotify sessions - ProPanda
