FACT’s Top 50 Albums of 2016


“No Frank Ocean. No James Blake. No Radiohead. So what did make the cut in our rundown of the greatest album releases of 2016?,” begins the intro to FACT‘s 50 best albums of 2016 list. Their #1 is a very unique pick, and as always, FACT‘s list shines a light on a lot of artists that other lists don’t (like Lorenzo Senni, Equiknoxx, Steve Hauschildt, and Konx-Om-Pax, to name a few), but it’s also got some very popular stuff too (like Rihanna, Beyonce, Solange, A Tribe Called Quest, Nick Cave, David Bowie, and Kanye West). Read their commentary here and check out the whole list below.
