Kaze’s favorite album list for year 2016

Dear readers,
the current article type is one of my favorite; an article that I am working on during the whole year. Every time I am preparing to listen to a new release, I am thinking ‘Let’s see, if this is quite addictive & exceptional!’. If I listen to the album N times in a row (where N >= 30), then it is a potential candidate for my favorite album list! Of course only a few albums are able to make their way in that list. The following albums were released during 2016 except laCasta’s Encyclia which was released in December 2015, and I listened to it for the first time in January 2016. For each album, I provide some information such as a link to a review if there is one, and a link to the bandcamp page of the release, allowing you to easily access the material and check it out for yourself. My favorites for 2016 include 16 releases where only the last 3 are ranked. For me, a favorite album means a 10/10 album and the first 13 albums fall in this category; all of them are quite addictive & extraordinary. But the last 3, they really talked to my soul, that is why I would like to differentiate them from the rest. I hope you enjoy!

20 best albums of 2016

Yes, it’s this time of the year. Time to choose my twenty favourite albums of 2016. It wasn’t that easy and that’s because this year we were lucky enough to listen to some tremendous music. This was also a fucked up year. Please excuse my language but it was. So many great artists passed away. Back in december we were shocked with the terrible news of Lemmy’s death. I still can’t believe he’s dead. His music though will live forever. And then David Bowie, Prince and Leonard Cohen died as well. Recently it was Micky Fitz of the Business who passed away. This was a sad year for sure. But life goes on. Anyways, here’s a list i made with my most favourite albums of this year. Count with me from 20 to 1.
