The 16 albums that helped us survive this crazy 2016
As we ready our escape into 2017, let us finish the year on a high note, temporarily ignore the maelstrom of political hate, violence and intolerance and praise what was a banner year for music.
I haven’t been so consistently impressed by a single calendar’s album haul in quite some time; the pond seemed stocked all year. But of course, all these great tunes came checkered with the year’s incessant tragic headlines.
So in lieu of a traditional “best albums” ranking, instead here is a chronological list of the LPs that got us through this frenetic 2016; records that were not only my musical favorites, but projects that possess the power to heal, inspire or uplift. Have a listen and try to feel a little better about the world. — Bobby Olivier
