When it comes to albums, there’s not a whole lot of diversity out there.
But the Fall of 2016 brought a lot of great new music to our ears.
Whether it was an EP from one of the big-name labels or a big-band gem from one the smaller ones, there were some great new releases that made it to our Top 50 albums of the year list.
Here are our picks for the 10 best albums of this year.
Bikini Kill, “Bikini Kill” (Atlantic) Bikini Kills’ sophomore album is an album that stands out because it’s one of those albums that feels like a step forward in its own right.
It’s a lot more accessible and catchy than its predecessor, but it’s also a lot less ambitious.
The result is a record that is more of a dance track than a pop song.
That’s not to say it’s a bad album, though.
The songs are well-crafted and catchy, and the album is a pleasure to listen to, which is a testament to the band’s ability to keep the band from feeling like a generic pop group.
Korn, “The Girl” (Def Jam) Korn’s latest album is still one of their best, but its successor, The Girl, was their most ambitious release since 2008’s The Day The World Went Away.
The album follows the band in its third year of being a full-time band, but the band has never been as confident as they are on The Girl.
KORN has always been a band that’s more concerned with the emotional aspects of their music than they are with making a flashy, flashy album.
The fact that Korn was able to be so much more than that on this album shows that it’s possible to go back to basics with your own sound.
Taylor Swift, “1989” (Capitol) Taylor Swift is a pop star with a strong musical voice.
Her debut album, 1989, was an enormous step forward for the singer-songwriter, as she became the first female artist to break through to the mainstream.
But while Swift is definitely making a comeback, her latest album isn’t the album that her fans are clamoring for.
The songwriting isn’t great, and her production is just a bit too pop.
But for a band whose songs are so iconic, 1989 was a great debut for the former Queen of Pop.
MØ, “In The Name Of Love” (Warner Bros.)
MÙ has been a long time coming for the Icelandic indie band.
Since the band began recording, they’ve kept their music pretty quiet.
But last year, they released their third album in six years.
While they’re still a small band, MÚ’s music is much more in line with the sound of their older brother bands, but with an emphasis on their more melodic side.
The record is a pretty straightforward listen, with a lot going on in the background, but M× has a lot to live up to with their newest record.
Dua Lipa, “We Don’t Need Love” and “All Day” (Empire) Dua lipa’s debut album was a major step forward.
It marked a change in the group’s sound, and it shows that they’re capable of producing a really great record.
This was a big step forward from the band that made their name on the chart-topping song “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”
The record was a huge hit, and now Dua is putting that record into the hands of the world.
The Strokes, “Loud Like a Bomb” (Universal) The Stroke’s fourth album was released in 2016, and one of its most notable songs was the track “Lonely Boy.”
It’s one that has become one of a few favorites of the Strokes’ fans because it perfectly captures the sense of isolation and loneliness that the band was trying to convey with their music.
The track is a bit of a departure from their usual sound, but that’s one thing that makes it a great record: It doesn’t feel like a departure at all.
It just feels like the best version of the song yet.
Adele, “Hello” (Columbia) Adele is known for being one of her fans’ favorite artists.
The Britney Spears-inspired single “Hello,” which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2016 and topped the Hot 100 for a second week, went on to be Adele’s biggest chart hit in 2017.
And while her recent album isn, in some ways, a comeback album for her, it’s still a fantastic one.
Ad-free and stripped down, “Hi” is a beautiful song that adores the sound and sounds of Adele.
The xx, “New Rules” (Foo Fighters) There’s a reason why the xx have become so well-known for
