I don't really listen to full albums anymore... It's usually artist, song, genre, or mix....

But I'd say, GOT season 7 score.... I know I've listened to that many times...

No shame in that. I used to be that way, but lately I’ve been trying to listen to albums in their entirety. I’ve got a decent commute to and from work so it’s usually an album or podcast while I’m driving. 

I bought over 100 albums (vinyl) this year. Some old, some new releases.
This year was the year I found music most uninspiring - nothing jumped out at me from any genre. I listen to a lot. Indie, some metal, hard rock, synth pop, jazz, blues,etc.

Here's my top 20 in no particular order (perhaps I might find this changes in a couple years, but as of right now, these are albums I really enjoyed this year) (a few from late 2016 might have snuck in):

Crack-up - Fleet Foxes
Run the Jewels 3 - Run the Jewels
The Nashville Sound - Jason Isbell
Soul of a Woman - Sharon Jones
The Marcus King Band - Marcus King
DAMN - Kendrick Lamar
A Deeper Understanding - The War on Drugs
American Dream - LCD Sound System
Bloodshed Across the Empyrean Altar Beyond the Celestial Zenith - Inquisition
Pure Comedy - Father John Misty
The Ooz - King Krule
Murder of the Universe - King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard
Process - Sampha
All American Made - Margo Price
God of Nicaragua - Feral Ohms
Secret Path - Gord Downie
Boomiverse - Big Boi

Agreed. It became an absolute top 2-3 favorite of mine after just a few listens. I’m assuming you’re talking about Could Never Be Heaven? That’s the only song I don’t like on the album.
