2016: Albums of the year so far




We are halfway through 2016 and what a year it has been for music. This pretty much continues on from the marker laid down by 2015, which to my ears was the best year for music in a long time. So many good albums have come out so far, and with the anticipation for more great albums to come, 2016 is lining up to match 2015 for music quality. With this in mind, here are my personal top twelve records of 2016 so far. 
1. David Bowie – Blackstar 
2. Kendrick Lamar – Untitled Unmastered 
3. Average Rap Band – El Sol (NZ) 
4. Anderson Paak – Malibu 
5. The Growroom – Exhibition III (NZ) 
6. Kaytranada – 99.9%
7. SWIDT – SWIDT vs Everybody (NZ) 
8. Miles Davis & Robert Glasper – Everything’s Beautiful 
9. Terrace Martin – Velvet Portrait 
10. Last Shadow Puppets – Everything You’ve Come to Expect
11. Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
12. Kanye West – The Life of Pablo 
– Sam
