This page lists the top albums of 2016 in the source charts. The way that the various charts are combined to reach this final list is described in the site generation page.

The companion site chart2000.com provides an alternative (and clearly better) set of charts of the top songs and albums of 2016. The data gathered at this site focuses on music from 2000 and before. The coverage for 2000-2009 is OK but after 2009 the number of charts included drops dramatically. The way year end summary charts are generated externally means that this year's data is not yet available, so the results here are really not to be trusted.

The top ten album artists of 2016 were:
