This has been a horrible year, even if you can somehow put politics out of your mind. David Bowie died a little over a week after New Year's Day and the deaths kept coming with horrible regularity. Prince, Glenn Frey, Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell and Sharon Jones are just a handful of the icons and talented musicians we lost over the past 12 months. After a while it just became numbing. Thankfully, great new albums helped us get by, even if some of them were made by people that died shortly after they were recorded. We asked our readers to select their favorite albums of the year. Here are the results.
