The Best Albums of 2016, Now and Then

A fun exercise. The 100 best albums from 2016 according to But two different snapshots: the ranking as it was at the very end of that year, versus the ranking of these albums as of July 30, 2020.

Radiohead’s “A Moon Shaped Pool” remains number one, but David Bowie’s “(Blackstar)” went from number two to number three. That’s a -1  position change and a -50% ranking change.

The highest absolute jump was “Telephone” – Nomame with +67 positions. The highest relative jump was “Nonagon Infinity” by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard: 80%.

Highest absolute fall: “Cautionary Tale” from Dylan Leblanc: -346 positions. Highest relative fall: “Suicide Songs” from Money: -449%.

One caveat: these ranking combine “recognised” charts (traditional lists from mainstream publications and websites) and charts from members of the site’s community.
