My Top 10 Vinyl Records of 2016

I'm so excited about sharing my Top 10 records of the year with you! To clarify, these are my top 10 purchases, the albums didn't necessarily come out in 2016. There were some I wanted to include but I realised that I got them late 2015 so they didn't count.

Over the last few months I have noticed that I've stopped writing in my journal and listening to records. I was all about it at the start of the year but because I'm at the end of a cycle, life has been about cleansing and internally setting intentions for 2017. I've needed a lot of quiet in this half of the year, and maybe that's why I got the job that I did in May (it's a very quiet, masculine and cold work environment).

Hopefully I'll get back into records in 2017 and have even more to share with you!

Ed Sheeran - Multiply (2 x 12")
Colour: Pink. This was released as a part of Ten Bands One Cause.
What I Paid: $64.95
Favourite Tracks: Don't, Photograph, Tenerife Sea, Afire Love

The 1975 - I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it (12")
Colour: Clear Frosted
What I Paid: $80
Favourite Tracks: A Change of Heart, If I Believe You, The Ballad of me and My Brain, Loving Someone, The Sound, Paris 

Panic! At The Disco - A Fever You Can't Sweat Out (12")
Colour: Black
What I Paid: $250 USD (I am such an unlucky bugger... you can now buy this for around $40 as it has been re-released)
Favourite Tracks: Literally all of them but Camisado is the one I replay the most

The Fray - How to Save a Life (2 x 12")
Colour: Butter Cream
What I Paid: $44.99
Favourite Tracks: Over My Head (Cable Car), How to Save a Life, Look After You

Oh Wonder - Album (2 x 12")

Zayn Malik - Mind of Mine (12")
Colour: Green
What I Paid: $34.99 USD

This record took a record 8 months to get to me after the supposed release date. I think that is absolutely ridiculous and I was expecting a black vinyl when it finally arrived. I was pleasantly surprised that it's a bright green colour. It softened the anger just a little bit.

The Lumineers - Cleopatra (2 x 12")
Colour: Grey Marble
What I Paid: $35 USD
Favourite Tracks: Where The Skies Are Blue, Gun Song

Lukas Graham - Self Titled (12")
Colour: Black

Favourite Tracks: Funeral, Strip No More

Fifth Harmony - 7/27 Album (12")

What I Paid: $19 USD
 Favourite Tracks: Dope, Scared of Happy, Work From Home, All In My Head (Flex)

Ed Sheeran - Songs I Wrote With Amy (12")
