Our Favorite Albums of 2016

As the year comes to a close, it’s pretty easy to hate on 2016. But death, corruption, and politics aside, a lot of great music emerged from the flaming dumpster that many consider the past 12 months. The three of us consumed unreasonable amounts of music this year, making it extremely tough to nail down our favorites into a somewhat cohesive list. Nonetheless, we managed to compile all our favorite albums into something you’ll hopefully enjoy reading. Check out the master list collage and some highlights below, then dive into each of our lists: Corey, Deepak, and Zach.
