Blackstar - David Bowie
If any event has come to dominate 2016 it might have been
the death of David Bowie. It was emotionally impacting for millions and it set the
tone to that on-going meme of “Fuck 2016.” It took me maybe 3 months to listen to Blackstar, not
because I was neces...

Lemonade - Beyonce
2016 was the year of Beyoncé more than any
other music artist. It was the year where she became political, the year she
got critical acclaim and the year she redefined the concept of a surprise album
and the music video.  I’m not a fan of Beyoncé. Sure she’...

Blonde - Frank Ocean
In contemporary R&B there’s no one who
creates records with the same emotional depth as Frank Ocean, and his follow up
to Channel Orange further pushes the notion that Ocean is one of the most
interesting and enigmatic artists currently recording. Frank Oce...

A Moon Shaped Pool - Radiohead
If A
Moon Shaped Pool were a part of the discography of most bands it’d be the highlight
of their discography and it’d likely overshadow anything else they released.
For Radiohead however it’s a album greater than their worst, but not greater
than their bes...

Coloring Book - Chance The Rapper
Book is the album whose acclaim confuses me the
most. It isn’t infectious, it isn’t experimental and it doesn’t make me feel
enriched by listening to it. So why is it so well regarded? I’m not Chance The Rapper’s target audience
I’m not a Hip-Hop ...

A Seat At The Table - Solange
Solange is probably best known for being
the sister of Beyonce, Solange is popular, talented and cool but let’s be
honest she’s still best known as Beyoncé’s sister. While she doesn’t
particularly stray from the musical content of a Beyoncé record Solange h...

We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service
From 1990 to 1993 A Tribe Called Quest was
the greatest active Hip Hop group, and perhaps the greatest artist of the time.
They innovated the genre with People’s
Instinctive Travels and pushed the genre further than ever before with Midnight Marauders , and...

The Life of Pablo - Kanye West
It’s become incredibly popular to attack
Kanye West at the moment, he’s been ridiculed for saying he’ll run for
president, he did an insane rant against Jay-Z and Beyonce on stage and he’s
become friends with the president elect. In fact it’s so hard not to...

Skeleton Tree - Nick Cave
Tree is an odd album. It isn’t dissimilar to much
of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ discography, yet at the same time it just feels
hollow, and not in a bad way, just in a atmospheric one. The reason for that is probably that Nick
Cave’s son died in t...

My Woman - Angel Olsen
Angel Olsen entered 2016 with an image of a
well-respected indie folk artist, she leaves the year with the album, My Woman,
and a neurotic art pop sound. Angel Olsen has been a curious artist over
the past few years, she first sprung up as a vocalist for Bo...
