    Default Dynamic Top Albums of 2016

    List your top ten (or more) albums of the year here, update as often as necessary. Not designed to be a thread for on-going discussion about albums, or to replace the year end lists threads, but instead is merely a quick reference for on-going recommendations, and for a sense of what other people are listening to. So ideally, one post per person in this thread should be entirely sufficient. If you want to talk about an album someone likes, take it to the Tell Us About 2016 Releases thread or another appropriate thread.

    For more, see the prior threads from 2014 or 2015.

    1. David Bowie - Blackstar

    Interesting to a couple votes for the Wray album. A month or so ago, I went to see Low by myself, and when it was over, I wasn't ready to go home so I walked over to a tiny little venue, assuming there would be a shitty local punk band playing -- and there was -- but after them, a band came on that I had never heard of: Wray. They were great. In fact, they were so good that I found the album to be a little underwhelming compared to the noisiness of the live show.
    Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

    No problem, glad you're digging it! It's really great and should be talked about more, "Mixer" and "Click Clack" get stuck in my head so much. All the credit goes to nosurpises though, he turned me onto it via the 2016 releases thread.
