A rough list of my favorite albums of 2016, so far.


Or, should I say, an extremely rough list of favorite albums. I think it has been a wonderful year so far for music, and it will be very difficult putting together a year end list if the quality remains this high. The rankings are pretty tight as far as the first seven, after that, I could rerank them dozens of ways. So here I go:

1. Suede -- Night Thoughts
2. Emma Pollock -- In Search of Harperfield
3. David Bowie -- Blackstar
4. Thao & The Get Down Stay Down -- A Man Alive
5. Esperanza Spaulding -- Emily's D+Evolution
6. Robbie Fulks -- Upland Stories
7. Anderson .Paak -- Malibu
8. Besnard Lakes -- A Coliseum Complex Museum
9. Loretta Lynn -- Full Circle
10. Emitt Rhodes -- Rainbow Ends
11. Mavis Staples -- Livin' on a High Note
12. Savages -- Adore Life
13. Michael Carpenter -- Big Radio
14. Bob Mould -- Patch the Sky
15. Doleful Lions -- Serious Moonlight Demonstration
16. Field Music -- Commontime
17. Gogo Penguin -- Man Made Object
18. John Cale -- MFANS
19. I Don't Cares -- Wild Stab
20. King -- We Are King
