It’s that time of year again, when music bloggers go through the year’s releases and highlight the best of the year. The usual caveats apply; these are the best records of 2016 I’ve actually had the chance to hear. I only have a finite CD budget, and even though I’m a part-time music writer, not every record company sends me free promos.
We’ll start with 25 to 11. Except that they’re not ranked in any order, because that would be next to impossible.
Update Because I missed out one record by mistake, this year’s list now goes up to 26. You will have to guess which one it was yourselves.
