Favourite albums of 2016
#1
Ok I would love to hear your favourite albums of the year. Only rule is it has to have been released this year, and let's say you can only pick 5 - that's the hard bit as I found out

Such varied tastes on this forum that it should be interesting. I will start with mine

White Lung - Paradise
Christine and the Queens - Chaleur Humaine
Julia Jackson - Don't let the Kids Win
The 1975 - I Like it When
Skepta - Konichiwa

Very difficult to stick to 5 only

Great idea for a thread, Womaz, it should be interesting.

Could I add a suggestion that there be a short description of the music (e.g. genre) and why you like it so much? That would be really helpful.

Yes of course people can do exactly that if they want.

Joe Bonamassa - An acoustic evening (Live at the Vienna Opera House). Just a great fun concert.
A new find; Jose Gonzalez - In our nature. Very simple but I love what he does with the sound of his acoustic guitar.

Hi guys,

1/ Lucas Debargue, "Bach, Beethoven and Medtner" (Sony Music) : the Medtner Sonata in particular
2/ Toto "live in Montreux 1992" : just because it's real rock'n'roll music live, with a few missteps (the legendary Jeff Porcaro did one at the end of Jake To The Bone). It kicks ass...
3/ The Oscar Peterson Trio "live at the concergebouw 1961" (Devialet vinyl) : the Con Alma version is outstanding.
4/ "The Similitude Of A Dream" by The Neal Morse Band : this double cd concept album just flows from the beginning to the end. Which is unfortunately not the case for The Astonishing by Dream Theater
5/ Jeff Beck "Loud Hailer" : inspired !

See you in 2017 for new the Steven Wilson's album...
