My favourite albums of 2016
Here we are again, then, looking back at another year and what a year 2016 turned out to be! Let’s focus on the musical highlights of the year, rather than its shadows. In no particular order, these are my favourite albums of the year we leave behind. It’s not a long list (and I confess there are still albums I’d like to have listened to more carefully and which may have ended up on this list), but it shines bright.
How about your favourites from 2016? And is there anything you’re looking forward to in 2017?
Beyoncé – Lemonade
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Skeleton Key
Leonard Cohen – You Want It Darker
David Bowie – Blackstar
Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
PJ Harvey – The Hope Six Demolition Project

The Beyonce album was indeed really good. Did not know PJ Harvey but I like the song
Some stuff I enjoyed among others in 2016:
Black Milk & Nat Turner – The Rebellion Sessions
Kendrick Lamar – untitled unmastered.
Anderson .Paak – Malibu
I really hope for some Andre3000 material in 2017.
Also Sampha is coming out with an album in February which promises to be really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njHcZMLDdSc
And talking about Beyonce, Jay-Z is supposed to release an album.
And last but not least: Zach de la Rocha of Rage against the machines is also scheduled to drop a solo project some time this year, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLishDbwy9c.
Now this got longer than planed again. Always happens with me.
