Favorite Albums of 2016

As per usual, I am late again this year posting my favorite records of the year.  2016 was a very strong year in music, and I feel very passionate about these albums.  My hope is that this list is enjoyable from a reader’s point of view, and that you find something new to listen to in the coming weeks or months.  As always, thank you for reading and may 2017 be a more forgiving year.
