Perhaps 2016 generated its fair share of chaos and loss, but it also produced a wealth of wonderful music. By the middle of 2016, it became clear that the late David Bowie and the very much alive Beyoncé would dominate the pop discourse of the year and deservedly so: both artists made compelling, vital music.

But to reduce 2016 to two albums does a disservice to a year that gave us so many rewarding records. Beyoncé's sister Solange created daring aural soundscapes to rival Radiohead, Savages tapped into the ferocity of the underground while Angel Olsen relied on her delicateness, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen wrestled with mortality. Bon Iver discerned a digital fragility in folk, Car Seat Headrest revived the messy roar of the '90s, Margo Price's country looked toward the past while Maren Morris looked toward the future and, at the last minute, A Tribe Called Quest released an album that encompassed all the frustration, fears, and hope of 2016. Every one of these artists -- and several more -- provided reasons to love 2016.
