HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2016

2016 was a very interesting year for music.  Perhaps a year like no other.

We saw a lot of new artists like The Dead Deads and Neverwake making waves.  And we saw a lot of respectable returns to the spotlight after years of hiatus from acts like Good Charlotte and Blink 182.

But perhaps the most encouraging characteristic of music in 2016 was the fact that a lot of veteran rockers put out their best albums in years, sounding as young as ever.  As you'll see in our annual top 10 list, there are a lot of familiar names near the top of the list.

Eddie Trunk gets the evening rolling with a few funny stories of how "That Metal Show" came to be.

HHRR's Top 10 Albums of 2015

In 2015, we were impressed by a lot of music - including music outside of our rock wheelhouse!

Today, we will begin counting down the top 10 albums of 2015.  We'll stop at #2 and will announce #1 tomorrow!

#10.  Disturbed - Immortalized.  This album was made something special by the inclusion of some different sounds for Disturbed.  "The Light" was refreshing and non-genre-specific.  And "The Sound of Silence" is sure to be considered a classic cover.
