Best Of 2016 Top 40

The Top 40 albums of 2016 as compiled by Crash staff, based on our opinions, customer feedback and sales in the shop and online. Obviously there is plenty of debate when putting together a list like this and it wasn’t easy narrowing it down to 40 albums,  especially with so many strong contenders this year.  We think we’ve covered a fairly broad mix of genres though.
