I took a little break for the holidays, took some mental health days, got one with the fam, and now that I’ve collected myself I decided to throw myself back into the throughs of stress by coming at you one last Shout Out to 2016!
I wrecked all my nerves trying to rank my 50 fav songs of 2016, so this BEST Albums list is going down the same way as the Honorable Mentions, in no specific order. Peruse the list below, then hit us up in the comment section or on Twitter with your favourite albums from 2016!

6집 – Where’s The Truth?
This is an FTISLAND we haven’t heard in YEARS! I am so happy to see them being their authentic selves, and getting to do they music they love rather than what is dictated by a label because that’s when we get the FTISLAND’s best.

The 1st Mini Album- ‘Free Somebody’
Luna may be the lead singer for f(x) but she has always faded in comparison to her group mates (at least for me), and in 2016 she managed to stand out and make a musical space for her. I think this style of music is really suits her and her skills, and does more for me as a listener than when she just sings a ballad.

Hoody made quite the debut as the first lady of AOMG. “On And On” was cohesive, it was fresh, and it was so different what the rest of her label is doing that she stood out even more.

The 5th Album ‘1 of 1’
Not one the most cohesive albums on this list, and not entirely in line with their 90s theme, but “1 of 1,” just SHINee usually does, was a collection of great songs.
