We sent out a message on Twitter and asked for you to share your favorite albums of 2016 so far—a task more difficult than it seems. You shared plenty of album love on social media, and we narrowed it down to your top five. Check out which albums made the cut, and see if your favorites are on the list!

5. The BlackAsking Alexandria
Asking Alexandria's new album The Black is the first offering with frontman Denis Shaforostov, and after the success of tracks like "Here I Am," it's clear that you love The Black just as much as we do.

4. Death Of A BachelorPanic! At The Disco
P!ATD's fifth offering was a hit on all sides of the music industry. It took it's rightful place among scene favorites, and it also hit No. 1 on Billboard's 200 Chart, making it Panic! At The Disco's first number one. Your votes gave it a place on our list, too.

3. HeadspaceIssues
When Issues released Headspace, it's clear that they weren't afriad to mix and blend genres. By the response we received, it's easy to see that their musical effort paid off. 

2. The Shadow SideAndy Black
Fan's were anxious to hear Andy Biersack's solo work outside of Black Veil Brides. His catchy tracks on The Shadow Side were highlighted in your votes, and his summer tour only heightened the excitement surrounding his solo release.

1. MisadventuresPierce The Veil
We waited (as patiently as we could) for a new Pierce The Veil record, and by the massive response, it's clear that Misadventures did not dissapoint. Even more, you seemed to love hearing the album in full on the first leg of the band's Misadventures world tour.

 

Honorable Mention: Taking One for the TeamSimple Plan
Canadian pop-punkers Simple Plan could not be kept off the list. Like Misadventures, we were anxious for Simple Plan's new tunes, and their latest record did not disappoint.
