by VVN Music

There's an early season favorite emerging in the run for best album by a veteran artist for 2016, David Bowie's Blackstar.

British magazines Mojo and Uncut have released their top albums of the year and both picked the Bowie album as number 1, but that isn't the only similarities between the lists. Both put Nick Cave and the Black Seeds' Skeleton Tree at number 3 and both gave half or more of the top ten to veteran artists.
