If you had to choose just one...
2016's best albums - according to Uncut magazine »
None of the above.
Here comes the rain of negative posts about music today and how much better music was in the 19__s!
oops, I see we already have one!
I'd go for Radiohead, but nothing from the list as N°1 really.
I was gonna make a comment that the best album of 2016 isn't on this list... But there it was!
I guarantee mine will be the only vote it gets.
FYI all my top five albums made the MOJO cut, so I can't complain about this list in the slightest. YMMV.
Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker
My list is longer but other great albums are not here.
Bowie - Blackstar. It's my pick for best album of 2016 too.
They're early! I understand the technique behind printed media, but in this new digital age the release year doesn't stop early October any more.
Bowie's place at the top is undeniable, as is Nick Cave's showing. Andy Shauf's 'The Party' is top three for me: just perfect.
From that list I have three, Bowie, Michael Kiwanuka and Charles Bradley. It was close between Bowie and Kiwanuka but I voted Bowie though there are others I would have selected as my favorite of 2016.
My favorite is probably Bob Weir's Blue Mountain, but I like the Leonard Cohen, Iggy Pop, PJ Harvey, and Nick Cave albums too.
Such a boring list. There's so much going on in music outside of Mojo's tiny world.
No problem choosing 'just one'
Blackstar is the only one I've heard.
Looks like a caca list to me.. ok ..Bowie is the best new release of 2016
Bowie's Blackstar, no question.
Where's We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service?
I voted for....
Michael Kiwanuka, it's a strong list.
2016 is turning out to be s good year for music if you take all the terrible deaths out of the equation.
not a strong list
2016 was a great year for music
Blue and Lonesome
That's because they left out heavy hitters like Anti, The Life of Pablo, Coloring Book, Untitled Unmastered, Malibu, etc.
3 albums that I've bought and heard = a pretty good year.
Drive-By Truckers' American Band is near the top of my list.
I went with Charles Bradley. Car seat headrest is close behind but I skip a few on that. Radiohead and Bowie were solid but not the best of the year for me
10 years ago I'd likely have everything on their list (and it was double the size I think).
Separate names with a comma.
