10. Nao - For All We Know
9. Frank Ocean - Blond
8. Anohni - Hopelessness
7. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree
6. Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
Okay, maybe that's too strong, but he had Radiohead's "OK Computer" playing and I hardly knew the band (except for that horrible "Loser" song). I couldn't stop listening to it (ruined the rest of my class) and, long story short, it's quite possibly my favourite album of all time (you'll see a poster of the album cover in my classroom). Thanks to that kid (no idea what his name was)!
Fast forward a couple decades and Radiohead remains one of my two favourite bands of the '90's - 2000's (the other being - of course - Sigur Ros!). And they are still releasing incredible, daring, unexpected music. This album isn't there best but it's still one of the best albums of 2016!
