Welcome all to the obligatory 2016 albums thread
Well it was inevitable that this would become a bigger project before it even got off the ground
I was planning to do a top 25 but as I was putting together my list (and working out honourable mentions) I realised I'd forgotten a few albums. So we now have a top 30 instead. I'm planning to post a new album every few days (or as soon as conversation dies down on said album) with a little write up and links to favourite songs.
Before we kick this off with #30 though I wanted to do a little honourable mentions section. This will be divided into three sections.
- Albums that I listened to, didn't like enough to make the top 30.
- Albums that I did listen to but not enough to rank them
- Albums I didn't get around to listening to but will do soon
We'll start with the three albums that I did listen to but they didn't make the top 30 (because I didn't really like them):
Wolfmother - Victorious
I really liked Wolfmother's debut but the follow up was pretty poor as far as I'm concerned. I checked this out just to give them a chance. This just doesn't do a lot for me but never mind, I don't see it as a great loss. I have the debut if I want a Wolfmother fix.
Killswitch Engage - Incarnate
I went to see a band with a few friends back in November and Killswitch were supporting. I've not really listened to them in years but there was a time where I used to listen to Alive or Just Breathing quite a lot. I gave this a few spins as I was going to be seeing them but it's just Killswitch Engage by numbers and I've just moved on.
The Avalanches - Wildflower
I had a real urge to Since I Left You just before Christmas and it's still a great album. I then realised that The Avalanches had released an album in 2016. I gave it a go but it was more hip hop than trip hop and I just wasn't as in to it. I just listened to Since I Left You instead.
I'll follow up with the other honourable mentions tonight and possibly post #30 on the list as well....
