Must Listen to Albums in 2016: Top 6 PositionsHere_Are_The_Albums_You_Need_In_2016-rewritten_edited

Frank Ocean

It was hard for Frank Ocean to beat his incredible record “Channel ORANGE” from 2012. With his new album “Blonde,” he once again proves his talent and shows his unique R&B style. What a man!

Drake

If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” was a piece of unexpected musicianship from Mr. Drake that came out in 2015, so this year’s “Views” was a highly expected return. And it boomed. Supported by 5 singles and released by Republic Records, Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records, it remained #1 on the US Billboard 200 for thirteen weeks in a row.

Animal Collective

A long anticipated album from Animal Collective that came out after the four long years of anticipation. Followed by a single FloriDada, the band offered three album covers to choose from.

Crystal Castles

This band knows how to compose popular songs. If we’re looking at the music suggestions from 2016, their recent album “Amnesty” has a lot to offer. After Alice Glass left the Canadian duo, the sound changed, but still it’s a great musical offering to enjoy.

PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey’s “The Hope Six Demolition Project” is a ninth studio album by this outstanding artist. The levels of excitement were escalating, when we were watching the teasers that came out prior to this album’s release. When the album was finally released, we exhaled with relief – it was totally worth the wait. And an interesting thing about “The Hope Six Demolition Project” is that when it was being recorded at Somerset House, visitors were allowed to observe the creative process through the one-way glazed windows.

Radiohead

Tom Yorke and company do it again! “A Moon Shaped Pool” is the ninth album of the band, which was released as a download in May. It’s the band’s 5th album to be nominated for the Mercury Prize. “A Moon Shaped Pool” also became the band’s 6th number-one album in the UK.

The show goes on as long as the music is playing. Let’s see what music 2017 is about to offer us!
