The Audiophile: Top 51 Albums of 2015 – VOTE

1 Comment


As 2015 winds to a close, the annual Audiophile Top 51 lists appear to recap what was great about this year in music.

While the music industry as a whole faces an ever-changing delivery and format dilemma, one thing continues to remain true; artists new and old continue to develop and create new music worthy of devoting our ears’ attention to it.  Some artists are capable of putting out one really great track that entices and absorbs your attention, others are able to plan it out and give you that good slow burn throughout the entirety of an album.  It’s the latter that we want to focus on here, as it takes a lot more skill and effort to really create a body of work that is both intriguing and enjoyable without being one-dimensional or repetitive to the point of the listener zoning out.  Here at the Audiophile we try to separate the wheat from the chaff and provide you with this year’s big winners who have been able to successfully compel audiences with more than just one hit single, with the truly prestigious delivering at all levels.  51 is the number we propose to highlight and hopefully you agree (or please, vocally disagree if you feel an artist was slighted or missed).  Feel free to listen and vote on your favorites and the year’s big winners will be posted at the end of December.

Also, don’t miss out on voting for your Top Track of 2015 as well!

Now, without further ado, in no particular order, your top 51 albums of 2015:

Be sure to vote for your favorite:

Did I miss someone or leave them off the list?  There are some notable absences from the list this year, including the likes of Grimes, The Decemberists, Sleater-KinneyLana Del ReyChris Cornell, Coldplay and Mumford & Sons  Were these artists’ absences  (or others) warranted? Discussion is always appreciated.

If you haven’t heard some of these albums, have no fear! I’ve made a playlist with them all in it for your listening enjoyment right here:
