Music of The Apocalypse!

So the year is almost over. That usually means it's time to talk about what was good this year in culture.
Music happens to be the area that I feel most qualified to comment on, but after a few attempts at musical criticism, I don't want to try and explain my preferences. Instead I've come up with the next best thing. I have listed all of the albums I spent significant time with this year in order from most to least favourite.

It should be noted that just because an album is low on the list doesn't mean I didn't like it. It just means that there were other albums that I liked more. Without further adieu here's the list.

Celebration Rock-Japandroids
Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun - The Wooden Sky
Locked Down-Dr. John
Four-Bloc Party
Synthetica-Metric
Channel ORANGE-Frank Ocean
Barchords-Bahamas
Adventures in Your Own Backyard-Patrick Watson
Port of Morrow-The Shins
Royalty-Childish Gambino
I Bet on Sky-Dinosaur Jr.
As The Crow Flies (EP)-Amos Lee
Babel-Mumford & Sons
Silver & Gold-Sufjan Stevens
Yellow & Green-Baronness
Gossamer-Passion Pit
