Best Albums of 2015

Mumbizz01
I know people are gonna say "It isn't 2015 yet". But I'm just making this list to get ready.

The Top Ten

1 To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

On this project Kendrick comes up with a masterpiece which is both so obviously hip hop and a completely new sound at the same time. So many things could have gone wrong with this album considering how much experimentation there was but they didn't. This is by far the best album of 2015 and most lists I have seen agree and in my opinion this is easily top 5 rap albums of all time as well. Amazing work of art.

Obvious winner, no debate. Old School organic Hip-Hop that is politically brilliant along with musically.

Probably the best rap album in years. - Caleb9000

I'm glad to see people here recognise thisto be the best album since the grammys were too racist to. I lost all respect for the grammys when Taylor Swift won album of the year over Kendrick Lamar - JESUSISKING

2 The Book of Souls - Iron Maiden

Most definitely the best! I got it yesterday on my birthday at Best Buy! The only place in the city that had it. P.S. I am LostDream258, I lost my password for my account. - OliveBranch222

Glad to see it number 1. Finally a list that's not flooded with mainstream garbage.

I am very happy with the top five of this list! (Currently consists of Book of Souls, Hand. Cannot. Erase, Beyond the Red Mirror, Meliora, and In Times). - IronSabbathPriest

This album is really good! Although Slayer is my favourite metal band, I do prefer this album over Repentless. Iron Maiden have made another great album! - Oliwally

3 Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots

Please No. Twenty One Pilots Was Good For Like 5 Minutes Then I Realized That I Wanted My Music To Be Enjoyable - SamThePenguin

Every song on here blows my mind. They are going to be awesome in concert.

If you do like this album, you in fact lied on your sign up to this account for you are like 11, not older than 12. also I bet you hate stressed out cause that songs actually not that bad but you're a special little snowflake. - SamThePenguin

SamThePenguin doesn't know what he's talking about- this album is not just great music but a story of Tyler battling his insecurities and doubts. - iLuc

A rlly nice album

4 Emotion - Carly Rae Jepsen

This deserves to be so much higher! Such an amazing album from an amazing singer!

What sort of piece of crap is this? Why is she still making "music"? I hope she retires soon! - SelfDestruct

I'm tired of seeing this girl on the charts.she is overrated and only does covers. Covers albums shouldn't be top ten material - JESUSISKING

5 Art Angels - Grimes
6 In Colour - Jamie XX
7 Carrie & Lowell - Sufjan Stevens

One of the most evocative albums of 2015, Carrie & Lowell is absolutely astounding. Echoed by grief, sorrow, and despair, Stevens' latest album is a must-listen to anyone who enjoys electronica, or soul music, expressed through cynical moments.

9/10 - Superb - Sxerks

Without doubt it's the best album of 2015 - peyman_eun

8 Every Open Eye - Chvrches V 1 Comment
9 25 - Adele

It's a shame that people vote before the year is over. Adele's new album is absolutely amazing, and the fact that it's a worldwide record breaker vouches for that. It's clearly one of the best albums of 2015!

Too overrated - BeaM456

This album is beautiful.

This is a fair rank for it.its no where near as good as 21 or even 19. Actually... It has some of adele's worst songs ever but their still better than any of iron maiden's songs

Easily my favorite album of the year, and one of my favorite albums of the decade. - WonkeyDude98

The Newcomers

? Three Sided Tape - Lil Ugly Mane
? Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap

The Contenders

11 American Beauty/American Psycho - Fall Out Boy

This is my favorite for sure. The atmosphere and the overall organic sound work splendedly. - Caleb9000

13 Currents - Tame Impala

The whole list is metal and Coldplay.

14 Hand. Cannot. Erase. - Steven Wilson

An easy choice for me and one of the best albums of the last few years also. This is progressive rock at the more accessible end of the spectrum, being both extremely melodic and devoid of the technical 'wankery' that many critics seem to think all prog albums exhibit. For this reason you wont find this album on many end of year lists, but I cannot think of another more deserving.

Impressive as hell. My favourite of this year. Please give it a listen. - IronSabbathPriest

This is music that makes you FEEL. - Caleb9000

15 Beyond the Red Mirror - Blind Guardian

Epic, impressive, perfect. The album of the year for me. - Metal_Treasure

16 Drones - Muse

Top-5 without a doubt. Muse released a pure masterpiece of an album here and as a huge Muse fan I am more than happy with the result. - DavidBondra

Why the hell is this 46, reapers and the handler are up there with their best songs ever

Great from what I've heard. Top ten is a given

This is the best album of the decade

17 Dark Before Dawn - Breaking Benjamin
18 Repentless - Slayer

I did not vote for this album but it should be way, way, way higher! - Oliwally

This is a POS compared to Drake's albums. Too much yelling, horrible beats, horrible instrumentals, not catchy, and is super-lame.

19 The Powers That B - Death Grips
20 I Love You, Honeybear - Father John Misty
