Best Albums of 20162
By - Posted 10th January, 2017 at 4:06 pm Entertainment

Plebings presents the definitive* list of the top 50 albums of last year.       *In his opinion.


2016 is behind us now, you’ll be glad to know – congratulations, you survived! There are a lot of things we want to forget about and leave in 2016, but if there’s one thing last year knocked out of the park, it was music. We saw statement albums from superstars like Beyoncé and Rihanna, we saw brilliant debuts in the shape of Nao and Shura, and of course we saw the heartbreaking final chapter in the discographies of David Bowie and Leonard Cohen.

I have written mini reviews for most of the albums on this list on previous Music Monthly articles, or this Habbox Forum thread, but without further ado, I present you with my favourite albums of 2016.


50. Pet Shop Boys – Super (pop)
