Nobody asked me, but here are my 5 albums of 2016, in no particular order:
- A Moon Shaped Pool, Radiohead
- A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, Sturgill Simpson
- We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, A Tribe Called Quest
- Sunlit Youth, Local Natives
- 22, A Million, Bon Iver
Since subscribing to an unlimited service, it’s been fun to explore my tastes, but it’s funny how this list still features three old favorites: Radiohead, the Tribe, and Bon Iver.
If I had to pick a favorite, I’d probably go with the Bon Iver. That album seeped its way into my consciousness and wouldn’t let go. It made yard work a bit more bearable.
Edit: Somehow not until after I posted this did I finally listen to Blackstar by David Bowie, which definitely deserves to be on my list. So consider it Six Favorite Albums, then.
