For my favourite music I stuck with what I actually reviewed or added to my iTunes library. I found that more more realistic than trying to figure out what I listened to from a list of whatever was released over the year.
2016 was somewhat of a down year for J-Pop and K-Pop for me. So much that I went back to listening to English language Top 40 for a little while. Upon further investigation while looking back I found that I did not listen to a lot of full albums at all. Much of what I have collected from the past year are all singles.
With that said perhaps my year-end listings might have a little more variety than previous years. Or maybe not.
