Tribe, Vince Staples, Isaiah Rashad, Frank Ocean, Tyler, Jamila Woods. That's a pretty solid hip-hop R&B lineup.

Are you saying that Room on Fire and Antics were "respectable sophomore efforts?" In my mind they're equals to their predecessors and, depending on my mood, superior. My mind is often a bedraggled mess though, so take that for what it's worth.

Antics is a classic and El Pintor was excellent and criminally underrated. Just saying.

I, for one, love Adams' newfound commitment to early 90s-esque rock ballads, and this is a helluva example. His songs may have lost their fragile emotional beats, but they've gained a "meatiness" (for lack of a better [good] word) that's easy to grab onto by the handful (sorry for that). I like that it seems like he's having fun. Can't wait for the album.

Frank Ocean - Blonde (really wanted to pick something more obscure, just for posterity, but I just couldn't. Blonde dominated my year.) Angel Olsen - Sister (could listen to it forever) How about most underrated/underappreciated of the year?? My votes go for: Andy Shauf Lydia Loveless Modern Baseball Jim James Flock of Dimes Thoughts?

I can understand not getting into Blonde, in parts it's willfully obtuse, but it's the album I've felt the most compulsion to revisit on a regular basis. There are some weak tracks, but the strong ones are SO STRONG. Something about how it oscillates between deep melancholy and temporary bravado speaks to me.

Guys, for the first time I'm...kind of disappointed in the SG year end list? Am I the only person in the WORLD who didn't think the Beyonce album was that great? Anyways, my preliminary list that's 100% missing something that I'll remember in 20 minutes: 1) Frank Ocean, Blonde 2) David Bowie, Blackstar 3) Anderson Paak, Malibu 4) Radiohead, AMSP 5) Angel Olsen, My Woman 6) Pinegrove, Cardinal 7) Bon Iver, 22 A Million 8) Kanye West, TLOP 9) Modern Baseball, Holy Ghost 10) Hiss Golden Messenger, Heart Like a Levee and, just because, honorable mentions: Lydia Loveless Flock of Dimes Car Seat Headrest Mitski Rost-Ham Andy Shauf Chance

You should definitely check out their debut album, "Weird Little Birthday." It's excellent - I return to it more often than most albums released in the past few years.

Not any as trustworthy, reliable and comprehensive. Certainly not any that aren't 100% guaranteed not to flood my computer with malware. So no.

Prince hurt. Bowie really hurt. Trump was a straight up gut punch. I don't even know what this is. I'm really torn up here. https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/753408240315146240/C1sixTfp.jpg

I'm thinking he's less upset about The Voice using his song and more upset that this particular cover sucks ass.
