  1. 10. GLASS ANIMALS - HOW TO BE A HUMAN BEING
    In a slow year for rock records, in my opinion, this was one of the better ones. Favorite song: Season 2 Episode 3
  2. 9. WET - DON'T YOU
    I am surprised they haven't caught on quicker, and maybe it's because this came out back in January. Favorite song: All The Ways
  3. 8. STURGILL SIMPSON - A SAILOR'S GUIDE TO EARTH
    My favorite rock and roll (country?) album of the year. Favorite song: Brace For Impact (Live a Little)
  4. 7. DRAKE - VIEWS
    Higher on this than most people, but I'm biased. It has grown on me since it came out, as it seems to have with most critics. Favorite song: Fire & Desire
  5. 6. RIHANNA - ANTI
    This is her best full album, even if not as heavy at the top. Favorite song: Same Old Mistakes
  6. 5. THE WEEKND - STARBOY
    He has become a full-on pop artist at this point, but he's good at it. Favorite song: Reminder
  7. 4. KAYTRANADA - 99.9%
    This album is all over the place, in a good way. The best surprise of 2016. Favorite song: Got It Good (feat. Craig David)
  8. 3. A TRIBE CALLED QUEST - WE'VE GOT IT FROM HERE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
    Down the road I might not have rated this as high, but I really thought this was going to suck. Was extremely impressed. Favorite song: Black Spasmodic
  9. 2. BEYONCÉ - LEMONADE
    You've heard enough about this one. Favorite song: All Night
  10. 1. ANDERSON .PAAK - Malibu
    Extremely unique. He was everywhere in 2016, and this album proves he will be here for a while. Favorite song: The Bird
