13. Chance The Rapper - Coloring Book

May 13, 2016
Critic Score
85
23 reviews

It’s both a high-profile showcase for Chance’s talents and a platform he cedes to a dozen or so guests. It’s a set of block-party-ready summer jams and a sepia-tinged acknowledgment of the inaccessibility of the past.

11. Kendrick Lamar - untitled unmastered.

March 4, 2016
Critic Score

29 reviews

Even a compilation of demos from the past three years of recording sessions, slipped into countless television appearances, bears a striking coherence.

10. Frank Ocean - Blonde

Critic Score

36 reviews

8. Kanye West - The Life of Pablo

February 14, 2016
Critic Score
78
34 reviews

A mighty weird “gospel album” wallowing in contradiction, a collection of music that acts as if music itself couldn’t have possibly existed before it.

7. David Bowie - Blackstar

January 8, 2016
Critic Score
85
36 reviews

Bowie’s latest doesn’t need to haunt in order to dig deep, but these seven tracks have enough power and depth to be unpacked for years.

4. Angel Olsen - My Woman

September 2, 2016
Critic Score
86
33 reviews

2. Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

May 8, 2016
Critic Score
87
37 reviews

Never before have Radiohead made anxiety such a singular concern, or unease such an agonized-over art form, as they have on the brooding, stewing, contagious A Moon Shaped Pool.
