Top 25 Albums of 2016

__________________________________________________________

04. Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

After The King Of Limbs none of us expected such a good record from Radiohead. Their latest works focused mostly on the rhythmic section leaving melodies on the background, ending in more cold and distant productions. With A Moon Shaped Pool emotions are back at the center of the process and the entire album delivers an extremely powerful moody atmosphere with great pathos and Radiohead’s distinctive class. (Thomas Borgogni)

03. David Bowie – Blackstar

The most eclectic artist of the XXth century leaved us two days after the release of his last record: Blackstar. An artful, jazzy, solemn testament of the most influential figure pop music has ever encountered. The amazing string arrangements of the title track, the saxophone in Lazarus, the free flowing tempo of Sue (Or In a Season of Crime) and the candid admissions of the closing track make Blackstar an essential listening, and the best album by Bowie since probably…Heroes! (Fabio Calissi)

02. Danny Brown – Atrocity Exhibition

Atrocity Exhibition stays for XXX the same as To Pimp a Butterfly stays for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City by Kendrick Lamar: it represents the evolution of the artist and the man, symbolizing the end of a path for Danny Brown, a point of no return and ultimately it will be a new standard and a constant term of comparison for hip hop music. (Fabio Calissi)

01. Frank Ocean – Blonde

The long awaited return of Frank Ocean, four years after his wonderful debut album Channel Orange, makes us feel like every single day of awaiting was definitely worth it. Blonde is the peak of Christopher Breaux’s career, a perfect misture of melancholy, irony and energy. Frank seems to have found his perfect equilibrium, and the result is majestic. Frank Ocean proves us once again why he is one of the most influential artists of this age, with only two albums, a couple of productions, some collaborations and a mixtape: the future is in his hands. (Carlo Casentini)
