Heavy Rotation

A year ago today, music lost a singular talent: Amy Winehouse, who was found dead from alcohol poisoning in her London apartment. Her voice was one of a kind, beautifully brittle and filled with hurt—perfect for bringing her dark tales of lost love, heartbreak and, yes, substance abuse to life. In remembrance of Amy and her gift for making sadness soar, we've assembled this stark soundtrack of albums that bring the pain.
