Best Albums of 2016 (So far…)

-A great track or two does not always a great album make. As such, there are many differences between my top tracks and top albums of 2016 (so far…).  I encourage you to use this list as a guide to some truly wonderful albums that have already come out this year. Be it in the confines of your car, personal bubble-creating headphones on a crowded train or as background to a great night with friends, time spent getting lost in great music is always time well spent. Go now and get thyself astray.
