The best music of 2016. See which albums are sitting at the top of this year's charts. The Highest Rated Albums of 2016. 25. Sturgill Simpson - A Sailor's Guide to Earth.
For a band that has cultivated a roughly 25-year bond with their fans through alienation and obfuscation, the plucking of heart strings on Burn the Witch signifies a new mode of operation: less clever, more giving, more human. For once in Radiohead’s career, there are other people on their album: the beds of violins, violas, and cellos are played by members of the London Contemporary Orchestra, then arranged by Jonny Greenwood in a newfound romanticism. Songs are archly composed, as finely detailed as ever-and at times, like on Daydreaming, monumental. By the end of the album, we are inches away from these sustained piano notes, so much so that we can hear the felt of the keys rubbing up against each other.
The slightly disjointed 15 tracks provide ample evidence of 360-degree skills, of house and funk steals, often undercut with the clattery skip of bass music.
Here are the 15 best trance tracks released during the genre's heyday between '93 and '97: Energy 52. 'Café Del Mar'. Released on the German's debut album '45 RPM' in 1994, 'For An Angel' is a bona fide classic that lifted him to staggering heights. Growing up in the heavily-monitored, East German Stasi-era, 'For An Angel' can be seen as the producer's own declaration of freedom, heard and loved around the world. While the majority of the tracks on this list are much lighter on their toes, 'Insomnia' is an incredibly dark trip, marrying the deranged yet engaged ramblings of an insomniac with an eccied screamer of a breakdown. It's not often that a track containing a line about dry potato makes it to No. 3 in the UK charts but we're not complaining and, by the looks of it, neither were the British public.

The list is heavy on the Brit-rock that NME understandably favors, and the weird time-frame (1996 to 2011) means there’s a wide breadth of stuff to choose from. Radiohead figures heavily on the list, with five songs placing and Paranoid Android appearing in the top spot

All corners of the music world kept booming in 2016 – even when everything else about our world looked like it was on the verge of blowing apart. Taylor Swift writes one of 2016's best country hits – a catchy tale of weeping in front of the mirror at four in the morning. With a break-up song this great, we all should have guessed it was Swift from the start. 15. Kendrick Lamar, Untitled 05 0. 1. K-Dot debuted this as part of his epochal Grammys performance in March, tapping into spiritual doubts – "I'm living with anxiety/Ducking the sobriety /Fucking up the system, I ain't fucking with society" – with a sax sample from jazz legend Eric Dolphy and a heavenly R&B hook sung by Anna Wise.

The 10 tracks on I Had A Dream That You Were Mine use small signposts that point to music of the past without fully devolving into pure pastiche. Although both men had day jobs playing various strains of post-punk, together their baseline is the much broader idea of pop music, plain and simple.
