Comment: So this is, more or less, the mainstreaming of my musical taste. Six of these albms are hip hope, and two are indie folk, one is folk, one is alt rock. So my age and taste coincides precisely once, on the John Prine, and two times are hipsterisms I couldn’t find a way of denying.

11 –  TESTING – A$AP Rocky

12 –  My Dear Melancholy – The Weeknd

13 – Ephorize – cupcakKe
