It's been a very good year for music, hasn't it?
So many great records have been released in 2015, it's difficult to make a list of the best 10, so I'm allowing myself 17.
Below are my favorites, in order of their release. It's no coincidence, I suppose, that I saw all of these bands live this year.
I've also put together a video playlist featuring each album in its entirety. Ah, the joys of Youtube.
