Uptempo
1. Ultimate Xperience - Lazarus Rising (Neogoa) .......................................... An UNEXPECTED surprise
2. Morphic Resonance - The City of Moons (Suntrip Records) ...................... My FAVOURITE Suntrip release in YEARS
3. Artha - Dream Telepathy (Cronomi Records) ............................................. EXCELLENT (few nitpicks aside)

4. RA - Earthcall (Suntrip Records) ................................................................ Would've loved more tracks but GREAT ALBUM
5. Crossing Mind - Beyond Duality (Suntrip Records) ................................... Complex, ultra-melodic Goa with INGENUITY
6. VA - Mind Rewind 3 (DAT Records) ........................................................... DESERVES to be on more lists IMO
7. VA - Analog Trips (DAT Records) ............................................................... Full of unreleased gems from old-school artists

8. Chi-A.D. - Earth Crossing (Amakusa Records) .......................................... Hard to place this re-released CLASSIC :wub: . 
9. Proxeeus - Weird Tales (Goa Madness Records) ...................................... So underrated

10. Ephedra - Flying Over The Universe (Goa Madness Records) ................ LOVE some of the Goa work here
 
Honorable mention: 
Mindsphere - Mental Triplex: Presence (Suntrip Records) ............................. Ultra melodic Goa album

Ticon - Mirage (Iboga Records) ...................................................................... One of the best Progressive Trance album's in years

Oforia - Read More (MDMA Music) ................................................................ Good comeback album

Imba - First Encounter (Suntrp Records) ........................................................ Solid, very danceable 

Dark Whisper - Realms of Unseen (Alice-D Records) .................................... Very experimental and not for everyone

 

Downtempo
1. Perfect Blind - Wanderers (Ae Records / Neogoa Records) ......... Midtempo's GREAT; the first 2 songs (+2 others) bore me tho.
2. Scann-Tec - Unyt (Ultimae Records) ............................................. Very nice
3. Aes Dana feat. Miktek - Far & Off (Ultimae Records) .................... Solid
4. Androcell - Imbue (Alter Records) ................................................. Unique album from the artist of Distant Systems - Spiral Empire
 
NOTE:  Still updating. Thanks everyone for the recommendations on this thread. I haven't been THAT impressed with downtempo this year. Chronos released "Keep In Your Heart", a beautiful self-titled track but the album has too many vocals. At least Perfect Blind has some VERY CATCHY tracks after track 2 (I find the mid-tempo tracks superior on that album). I don't mind that Sunrip didn't release a compilation this year. Their artist albums were worth it. Best GOA compilations of 2016 is V/A - Analog Trips (DAT Records) featuring unreleased GOA songs by Etnica, Doof, Green Nuns, Medicine Drum, Elysium, and Earglobe which is the collaborative name for Hallucinogen and Etnica. And VA - Mind Rewind 3 [DAT Mafia Recordings] !!! All in my opinion of course. :)
