The best albums of 2016 in my opinion

With the new year approaching, I look forward to many new posts concerning the intersection of music and society on this blog.  At the same time, I wanted to close out the year by simply doing what almost every other media and commentary source about music does every year at this time.  As such, here are my own best albums (limited to 25 and only to new releases) of the year presented without comment for anyone’s interest or consideration.  See you all here in the new year, j
