To complement The 2016 MEBBIES and our individual end of the year lists, we’ve compiled a list of our staff-wide favorite albums for the year. Each staff member could assign 100 points to a maximum of 20 albums, with no more than 15 points per album. Below, you’ll find our top 80 albums, arranged by size according to (approximately) how popular they are among our staff. Go ahead and judge some books by their covers. Oh, and you can click any of the art to hear its corresponding music. Windowshop a bit. Let us know in the comments if you agree with our picks or if we missed anything good!
