Albums of 2016.5




The first half of 2016 has been a rather iconic time for music. Some of our biggest stars have released some of their best work and we've mourned the losses of two giants many thought would out-live us all. 

It's a little crazy to think that all of this music came out in the first half of the year and we still have six more months to go before a final year end list. As we celebrate our nation's birth, I've assembled a list of my favorite albums released this year (so far). 



01. Kanye West | The Life of Pablo



02. Radiohead | A Moon Shaped Pool


03. Beyoncé | Lemonade


04. Mitski | Puberty 2


05. Chance the Rapper | Coloring Book


06. David Bowie | Blackstar


07. dvsn | Sept. 5th


08. White Lung | Paradise


09. The Range | Potential


10. Anderson .Paak | Malibu
