2016

The last couple of years I’ve done this, happy to do it again. What I need you to do is give your top five albums in this format:

  1. The artist who released your favourite album of 2016 - Name of album
  2. The artist who released your 2nd favourite album of 2016 - Name of album
  3. You get the idea
  4. etc
  5. The artist who released your 5th favourite album of 2016 - Name of album

Please use this format, anything else just makes my life more difficult than it needs to be. I will also only take the first list provided. So if you want to swap positions 2 and 3, and exchange the 5th one for something else that’s all fine, but it won’t be included in the results so try and get it right first time if you can.

It’s also better if all discussion goes somewhere else so this is just a thread of beautiful lists. I’ll start another thread for AOTY discussions.

And at the start of January I’ll crunch the data and we can find out which albums DIS users really liked. Last year it was Sufjan:

And the year before it was Sun Kil Moon:
