Top 5 Albums of 2016

Going to do a speedy run through my top fives of the year. Starting with my favourite albums of the year, no long wordy explanations this year just a straight list.

1. Meilyr Jones "2013"

2. Leonard Cohen "You Want it Darker"

3. The Blind Shake "Celebrate Your Worth"

4. Charles Bradley "Changes"
