The Top 100 Albums of 2016 in no particular order. (all opinions are my own)

  1. Frank Iero And The Patience - Parachutes

    2 For Sale from $16.97

    This album is an emotional, visceral post-hardcore treat. Frank Iero is the rawest kind of artist, his work is ruthless and honest and I can't wait to see what he does next.

  2. BANKS (7) - The Altar

    1 For Sale from $39.95

    I honestly didn't think Banks could follow her incredible debut, Goddess but she did! The Altar is a powerhouse album that I honestly wasn't expecting and I think Banks is an artist to watch out for, she is immensely talented.

  3. Green Day - Revolution Radio

    When I heard that Green Day would be releasing a new album this year, I was very excited because who doesn't like Green Day right? Anyway, Revolution Radio is such a great album and I think it is so true to who Green Day are. I can hear bits and pieces of their history in this album from Nimrod to American Idiot to the Unos!, Dos!, Tres! trilogy. It's good to have them back.

  4. Panic! At The Disco - Death Of A Bachelor

    It's quite obvious that Panic! At The Disco's evolution has been a colorful one. If you listen to their discography sometimes it's hard to believe that you're still listening to the same band. Their sound changes album to album and Death of A Bachelor is no exception. It's hard to pinpoint the exact genre that this album falls under but whatever it is, I love it. This album effortlessly blends big band influences with modern pop rock and it is honestly, genius.

  5. Glass Animals - How To Be A Human Being

    Glass animals are like the musical equivalent to honey. So smooth and sweet, but definitely not everyone's favorite. Just like their debut, Zaba, How To Be A Human Being is smooth, fun, and chill. Glass Animals are definitely one of my favorite bands in the indie pop genre right now.

  6. Real Friends - The Home Inside My Head

    Real Friends are real front runners in the pop punk genre right now and The Home Inside My Head really just reinforces that. This album is so incredibly honest and really has an overall theme of hope which I think is what makes this album so good.

  7. Modern Baseball - Holy Ghost

    Honestly before Holy Ghost I wasn't really a big fan of Modern Baseball, but this album is a breath of fresh air. My favorite track is Note To Self.
