THE TOP 25 ECHOES CDs FOR 2016

Despite all the deaths of musicians in 2016, this will go down as one of the best years ever for the music you hear on Echoes. In many recent years the albums that didn’t make this list would’ve been on the top of previous year’s selections.  It hurt to leave off fantastic albums by Robert Rich, Emmy the Great, Tor, Marissa Nadler, Still Corners, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis and others. An indication of the kind of year we had is that all of the Echoes CD of the Month picks made the list. That’s rare, because a CD of the Month is the best of that particular month, but may not stand up to a year’s worth of albums.  So, here it is

    Great list for 2016. I am glad Album Leaf fell in the top 10.
