Radiohead made their grand return to alternative rock and released the highly-acclaimed "A Moon Shaped Pool"—their first album in five years! But which is the alternative rock album of the year? 🎸

"Blackstar" was Bowie's final album for his fans. He released the album on his birthday and soon after, he passed away. Although Bowie was snubbed in the Grammys Album of the Year category, he's nominated for Best Alternative Rock Album. And with this album, he's leaving us with quite the legacy.

Like "Blackstar," Radiohead's "A Moon Shaped Pool" made it on many "Best of 2016" lists and is nominated for Best Alternative Rock Album—mixing art rock and electronica into an cohesive sound. Radiohead's latest effort is one of the most acclaimed albums of 2016. If any alternative rock album gives "Blackstar" a run for its money, it's "A Moon Shaped Pool."
