I still check "best of the year" lists, Metacritic and whatnot, but mostly just to feel the (faint) pulse of the times. I grew out of being addicted to lists years ago, thankfully. Magnet magazine asks its interviewees to list three things (musical or otherwise) in which they're interested at the moment; here's the respective sidebar from a 2014 article on Pere Ubu (note the last "item"):

 


Having said all of this, I'm gonna pull a not-quite-180 and, since consensus has its casualties, make a 2016 list BUT only without titles previously mentioned on this thread. In no particular order:

Lazarus: Original Cast Recording — Various Artists. If only for the three songs on the second disc that didn't make it onto .
Wild Stab — The I Don't Cares
The Ghosts Of Highway 20 — Lucinda Williams
Just A Little More Faith And Grace — Lucinda Williams
The Ship — Brian Eno (previously mentioned, but not listed )
The Rarity Of Experience — Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Glitterbust — Glitterbust
Heron Oblivion — Heron Oblivion
"Not A Word"/"I Won't Let You" — Low/S. Carey
Patch The Sky — Bob Mould
Forever Sounds — Wussy
Tense Nature — Brian Case
Feelin Kinda Free — The Drones
Fallen Angels — Bob Dylan
Eyes On The Lines — Steve Gunn
Hit Reset — The Julie Ruin
Strangers — Marissa Nadler
Bury Your Name — Marissa Nadler
Glenn Kotche: Drumkit Quartets — Sō Percussion
Nocturnal Koreans — Wire
Tween — Wye Oak
If You See Me, Say Yes — Flock Of Dimes
Lovers — Nels Cline
Schmilco — Wilco
Beyond Now — Donny McCaslin
"Feel It In Your Guts" — Thurston Moore & Bernie Sanders
"Chelsea's Kiss"/"Sad Saturday" — Thurston Moore
No Waves — Body/Head
Bleed For This: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack — Julia Holter
Crab Day — Cate Le Bon
PRN — Gate
Strung Out In Heaven — Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff. Anna Calvi's performance on "Blackstar" is what truly elevates this one from the sea of tributes.
