Unfortunately, 2016 has demonstrated what seems to be the ongoing decline in interest for new music (at least, anything carrying a "rock and roll" tag attached to it). In the past year, there were a slew of great releases, which, for the most part, seemed to fly under the radar, not getting the recognition they deserve. Even long-standing "rock" stalwarts like the Rolling Stones and the Heavy Metal juggernauts, Metallica- while both having great initial release week sales- in the end, appear to have only received lukewarm responses from their fan bases, and the music community in general.
Nevertheless, we, here at Rock Music Star, love and appreciate new music, and like every year, we've compiled our Top 10 releases of the year. Take a minute, to look back with us, at our favorite releases of 2016:
