Surviving “WV’s 1,000-year flood” (and its endless aftermath) has taken all my time and energy this year. Only 5 albums were good enough to break through the chaos…
Muruch.com’s Top 5 Albums of 2016
Honorable mention to Amanda Palmer’s masterpiece, “Machete,” which is an album of a song.
5. Todrick Hall: Straight Outta Oz
4. Childish Gambino: Awaken My Love!
3. Fantastic Negrito: The Last Days of Oakland
2. Saul Williams: MartyrLoserKing
1. Beyoncé: Lemonade
Lemonade was the only music I had immediately following the June flood, which took a huge chunk of my music collection along with my car. Beyoncé’s album would be magnificent in any circumstance, but it truly saved my sanity this year.
