Yearly Review Archive: 2016

Here’s every 2016 record I listened to in 2016 (327 total). Artists are in alphabetical order (solo artists by surname) under their respective record’s grade out of a mark of 10. My fondness/disdain for a record may increase/decrease as time goes by and/or with further listening. Some of this will be apparent in my end-of-year top-records list.
