The best albums of 2016 so far…

As we are half way through 2016, I decided to do a little checkpoint and quickly single out some of the records from the first half of this year that, I think, should definitely be on pedestal. 2016 has already been a fantastic year and I’m all in good hopes for the rest of it, being sure that we will be surprised more than once.
