9. DIIV - Is the Is Are

February 5, 2016
Critic Score
72
25 reviews

6. Bon Iver - 22, A Million

September 30, 2016
Critic Score
88
33 reviews

22, A Million is a progressive and standalone album full of deep emotions and clever ingenuity.

3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree

September 9, 2016
Critic Score
90
27 reviews

Simultaneously eulogy, love song, and meditation on trauma, it often feels like Cave is grasping for air, especially near the midpoints of the album, where the sadness seems almost insurmountable.

1. David Bowie - Blackstar

January 8, 2016
Critic Score
85
33 reviews

It goes without saying that Blackstar isn’t the kind of epoch­defining masterpiece that Bowie built his career upon a few years ago. That being said, it does return the songwriter to the unpredictable excitement of that earlier time.
