Over the last three years, I have been posting my top 10 albums of the year on my twitter and private Facebook account. As I while away the last few days of 2016, I have posted my 10 albums of the year below. It definitely does not conform to any critics list and has my usual guilty pleasure album. See if you like the music as 2016 draws to an end.
No 1. Chaleur Humaine — Christine and the Queens
No 2. This is Acting — Sia
No 3. Nothing’s Real — Shura
No 4. Freetown Sound — Blood Orange
No 5. Potential — the Range
No 6. Volition — Phoria
No 7. Not to Disappear — Daughter
No 8. We Got it from Here.. Thanks 4 the Service — A Tribe Called Quest
No 9. A Seat at the Table — Solange
No 10. Remember us to Life — Regina Spektor
So a list dominated by woman power pop, electro ambient and some exciting hip hop R&B. Albums that just missed out were Woman by Justice; Close Eyes to Exit by Klangstoff, Konnichiwa by Skepta and Black America Again by Common.
