Cugerock Top 15 Albums of 2016 - 1st Half of 2017

Sorry folks. I know it's been awhile. I would say in the past 18 months I've experienced the absolute highest of highs and darkest of lows in my life thus far. That being said I quote Mike D of the Beastie Boys...

"I've been through many times in which I thought I might lose it. The only thing that saved me, has always been music."

This was also the quote submitted for my high school yearbook that never made it to print unfortunately. #FunYetSadFact
