In 2016, the Cubs won the World Series and Trump was elected President. It was a wild one and I’m sure glad it’s coming to a close… Anyhow, here are my top albums of the year. Definitely a little different than some of the other lists I’ve seen thus far, but these are the albums that have impacted me the most. Some hip-hop, electronic and little indie rock. Enjoy.
