What were your favorite 2016 releases? Using the form below, write in and rank the five albums you loved most this year. Your No. 1 favorite album goes in the first space, your second-favorite in the second, and so on. We'll tally the votes and share the results in the All Songs Considered podcast on Tuesday, Dec. 13.
There was no shortage of remarkable albums this year, from both newcomers and veteran musicians. But if you're having a hard time remembering some of the standouts, browse NPR Music's Best 50 Albums and Top 100 Songs lists. You'll likely find some of your favorites there, along with a few surprises or things you'd forgotten.
Come back later this week for personal Top 10 lists from me, All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen, NPR Music's Stephen Thompson and NPR Music's Ann Powers.
