Our Favourite Albums of 2016

RAD LIFE

Our Favourite Albums of 2016

Kate Sansome

2016 has been a pretty huge year, delivering some of the world's best and worst events in history, including the world of music.  We said goodbye to some of the biggest names in music, with absolute music legends David Bowie and Prince passing away earlier this year.  We also fell in love with some of the best talent that Australia has to offer, with our fave producer Flume winning eight ARIA awards and local stunner, Tkay Maidza absolutely killing it internationally.  The end of December is usually the time when we reflect on the year that was and start compiling our Hottest 100 votes (which closes in less than a month), so we asked the RADL team to share their favourite releases of 2016.
