top 10 albums of 2016

according to moi


2016 was an amazing year for music. This year, plenty of artists really took their creative liberties and went for sounds that were pushing the envelope, bringing a refreshing feel for this year. It was super hard to pick these albums and to put them in some kind of order but I did just that for you guys. I’m sure a lot of you will disagree with my list and that’s fine. Top albums lists are always subjected to scrutiny because they are subjective but the best part about it is we all get to discover some great music that we may have overlooked or not even noticed this past year and that’s always dope! So without further adieu, here are my top 10 albums of 2016.
