Favorite Albums 2016

Image result for 2016 best albums

My top ten list in no particular order.  As I look at the list, there is a lot of despair, desperation and death but also a little bit of hope and faith in moving forward.  May 2017 brings a little more of the latter.

David BowieBlackstar

A great album that sadly became more poignant a week after its release

 

RadioheadA Moon Shaped Pool

The band comes back after a five year hiatus and creates their most direct and personal album

Angel OlsenMy Woman

Angel creates an album of pain and sadness it almost hurts to absorb her lyrics.

Sturgill SimpsonA Sailor’s Guide To Earth

Fatherhood inspires Sturgill to create his best album to date.

Iggy PopPost Pop Depression

Partnering with Josh Homme to create an album perfectly matched to the over-sized personality of Iggy.

Margo PriceMidwest Farmer’s Daughter

Margo doesn’t have to write her auto biography.  Her whole story is on this memorable album

Paul SimonStranger To Stranger

Paul’s humor and wit shine through in the lyrics matched with the arrangements of the songs make for one of his most memorable albums in 20 years.

Childish GambinoAwaken, My Love

Donald Glover releases his inner Sly Stone.

A Tribe Called QuestWe Got It From Here….Thank You For Your Service

Their final album after the passing of Phife Dawg is not a nostalgic trip but an inspiring journey

Leonard Cohen “You Want It Darker

Leonard bids a fond “adieu”
