Heavy Blog’s Outliers 2016

Since we publish our individual Top 10 lists right after our main one, you can clearly tell that there are always albums missing for each writer from the general list. We embrace that fault as one of the inevitable limitations of general lists for the collective power such aggregations hold; we wouldn't give up doing a main list, ever. However, it's always been a habit of ours to allow each writer to highlight one album from their Top 10 selections that didn't make the final cut. This allows us more flexibility and the chance to, one last time, shun a light on some of our favorite music from the year. In a fantastic year such as 2016, it's almost a necessity, as our list, more than ever, misses out on so much of the greatness contained therein.
