ACL 2016: The Top 20 Albums of the Year

a closer listen

worlds-end-girlfriend-plein-soleilThe last album we reviewed this year ended up being the best ~ in light of the title, a fitting end.  Our cover image is taken from its lead video; the actress seems to be giving the album a closer listen.  

During the last month, we revisited our reviews, put our favorites on repeat, debated and created our lists; and finally we came to a consensus.  2016 may have been a terrible year for politics and for peace, but it was a great year for music.  The artistic impulse is an act of creation in the midst of destruction, courage in the midst of fear.   We needed these albums, and just when our spirits were at their lowest, they appeared.  We hope that you enjoy our selection of The Top 20 Albums of 2016!
