    What are you top 5 albums of this year?

    Mine are:
    1) Frank Ocean -Channel Orange
    2) Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid, M.A.A.D.
    3) Chromatics - Kill for Love
    4) Miguel - Kaleidoscope
    5) The XX - Coexist

    I know I'm missing a lot of other good albums that came out this year but this is what I could think of at the top of my head.

    Honestly I didn't listen to a lot of non-hip-hop albums this year outside of Channel Orange, so it is what it is.
