I’ve taken the hundreds of nominations you added and boiled it down to 70 contender for Album of the Year 2016. You can vote for three of the albums below but you don’t necessarily have to use all of your votes. While I’ve tried to include as many of the nominees as possible, some albums had to be excluded most likely because there were few who nominated the release. There were two exceptions: Chance the Rapper’s album is technically a mixtape but I put it in the list because it had a significant buzz and impact on the hip hop scene. I also excluded Adrian Grande’s album, because it’s objectively a terrible album.
If I didn’t include a very obvious album, leave a note in the comments below. But please respect that all of your entries couldn’t fit.
Update: The poll has closed.
Wow, I didn’t actually listen to any of these. SHAME!
Yeah, I only have listened to PJ Harvey, Radiohead & Franck Ocean… Slow ye
*year for me as it seems
You are better than me then :)
Man, I really enjoy the new Green Day album. Wish it was up there.
Holy crap! For real! I forgot about it!!
There’s a reason you forgot about it ;-) @plopplop
Is Soft Hair considered an obvious album choice?
As I thought that’d be up there…
DJ Khaled says you all played yourselves!!!
Phew, luckily for the list it doesn’t sound like Awaken, My Love!’s a hit.
Robbie Williams : Heavy Entertainment Show
Royal Republic : Weekend Man
OneRepublic : Oh My My
Sully Erna : Hometown Life
Dee Snider : We Are The Ones
Tom Odell : Wrong Crowd
I had a hard time limiting myself to three album nominees last year. But 2016 just isn’t my year I guess… I did however listen ALOT to Crystal Castles – Amnesty (I) it has to be my favorite record of the year. And YES I miss Alice too, and YES Ethan “might” be a selfish misogynistic prick.
my personal favorites of killswitch engage and Periphery aren’t on the list, but at least I could cast a vote for deftones
American Football – American Football
Tiny Moving Parts – Celebrate
Modern Baseball – Holy Ghost
Pinegrove – The Cardinal
Touché Amoré – Stage Four
Anohni is great!
Plaid, The digging remedy.
Death Grips, The Bottomless Pit
White Lung – Paradise
Nothing -Tired Of Tomorrow
LADY GAGA – JOANNE !!!!!!!
No ‘Views’? Quadruple-Platinum….But not even in the discussion…
Also, No ‘STARBOY’?
Out of this list, we put our votes in for DGD, ADTR and Blink. Great music for 2016, let’s see if 2017 can top it!
Royce Da 59 – Layers
Joe Budden – Rage and the Machine
Bas – Too High To Riot
Jean-Michel Jarre – Oxygene 3 just came out few days ago and I truly think it deserves to be here
Please add Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool and Daughter – Not To Disappear
