MY FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2016

It’s been a while since I voted in the Village Voice’s annual Pazz and Jop poll but for whatever reason, I decided to do so this year even though I didn’t have a literal top 10 (just top 8). The way Pazz and Jop works is that your picks are weighted so this is what I turned in:

    Beyonce: Lemonade (20 points)
    Frank Ocean: Blond/e (20)
    A Tribe Called Quest: We Got It From Here (15)
    Noname: Telefone (15)
    Lee Fields: Special Night (10)
    Jamila Woods: HEAVN (10)
    Frankie Reyes: Boleros Valses y Mas (5)
    Kendrick Lamar: Untitled. Unmastered. (5)

These were, to be sure, kind of spur of the moment for me and if I had more time, I might have rejiggered some of the point values or what have you but overall, these were the albums that gave me the most pleasure in 2016 and/or the ones I felt that were important to be recognized.
