Happy Independence Day to our readers in the U.S. Time for us to take a minute and recount what full-length releases have impacted in the first six months of 2016. And what a year's it's been. We spent the entire year of 2015 wondering when Adele, Kanye, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Drake and Radiohead would surprise-drop their albums. Surprisingly, with the exception of Adele, none of them turned up until the first half of 2016. The rest of the names was waiting to bless us with their full-length releases this year. Add a few marketing stunts and scandals to the equation, and you have one of the biggest year's in recent music history. Have a look at our latest poll below and let us know what release you've enjoyed the most thus far.
