After revealing top songs, music videos, and genre-specific album lists like rap and pop/R&B, Pitchfork have revealed their top 50 albums of 2016. It's a diverse list as always, with indie rock from Car Seat Headrest, Mitski, Parquet Courts, Frankie Cosmos and Pinegrove, soft rock revival from Kevin Morby and Whitney, rising rappers and R&B/soul singers 21 Savage, Kamaiyah, Jamila Woods, KING and Telefone, jazz from Vijay Iyer / Wadada Leo Smith and Esperanza Spalding, electronic music from Huerco S and Moodymann, and more. Anderson .Paak makes the list twice, with his solo album Malibu and NxWorries. There's also 2016's year-end list regulars David Bowie, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Chance the Rapper, A Tribe Called Quest, ANOHNI, Angel Olsen, Radiohead, Danny Brown, Bon Iver, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Rihanna (who cracks the top 20 after getting a surprising low score on her album this year). Both Knowles sisters are in the top 3. Can you guess which one is #1?
