Favourite Albums of 2015

No ranking. No overwrought analysis behind why this album or that album was the truest representation of the state of humanity in the year 2015 AD. Just a list, presented alphabetically, of 20 albums released this year which I have really enjoyed. All this, and I still haven’t heard Divers by Joanna Newsom, nor have I given the Holly Herndon or Oneohtrix Point Never albums enough of a listen to include in my list, despite really liking what I’ve heard on a couple of recent plays. Anyways, here are some albums that made 2015 an absolute blinder.
