My Top Albums Of 2016 Part 1






























2016 was a great year for music. I could have spent another couple of months going through all the albums I have from 2016 and I would never have finished this list.

I tried to be very picky and just present the albums that I've listened to on multiple occasions. Some grew on my and others hit me from the moment I hit play.

I ended up with the top 60 albums that really blew me away.

Here are the first 20, in alphabetical order. I've listed the album name and then a track that represents the album.

Enjoy, I did!
