Top 10 Albums of 2016 (Number 1)

1.) The Avalanches – “Wildflower”

16 years later, the Avalanches are back and they are more creative than ever. Focusing more on going to a psychedelic trip with hip hop beats and ranging on R&B and rare samples, the Avalanches’ “Wildflower” is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that shows that they never lost their edge and fun. The main reason why this is the album of 2016 is not only because of their great return, it’s really because they stay true to themselves and embrace absurdity in music in the most cunning and intricate way. Welcome back to music!

Top Tracks – Subways, Frankie Sinatra, Because I’m Me, Harmony, The Wozard of Iz

5.) Beyonce – “Lemonade”

All hail the Queen B! And hot damn we were not ready for the slaying on her tangy yet refreshing “Lemonade”. Each track is literally full of flavors that characterize her personal life (marriage and family alike) as well as her perspective of female empowerment. And what’s really brilliant about this manifesto is that it’s Beyonce’s most artistic album to date and demands attention.

Top Tracks – Formation, Sorry, Hold Up, 6 Inch
