Special mention to The Archandroid by Janelle Monae. Not old enough to be a soundtrack to my life, but I feel it will be at that status another 2 decades. I have already listened to it more than any other album in the last couple of years.
I hate mix tapes. An album is an art. A good one should not be split up.
