If the Top Album Spins list shows where many DJs agree about the year's best releases, our Top Ten lists show how much every DJ adds the collective knowledge of music shared on KDHX. Sometimes the discoveries our DJs make are belated as we dig back into the past and uncover forgotten favorites or overlooked masterpieces, and sometimes, as here, those discoveries are ahead of their time. For a year burdened with the weight of compounded losses, 2016 was strong in music. Here's over thirty DJs' takes on the ten best releases of the year. Needless to say, each easily could have listed ten or twenty more.
