Best Albums of 2015Mumbizz01 I know people are gonna say "It isn't 2015 yet". But I'm just making this list to get ready.
The Top Ten
Mindblowingly smart. - JoLeKosovo
Best rap album of not just 2015 but also one of the best of the 2010's. - Smashball23
Easily number 1. - DarkBoi-X
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.20 Comments
Great album should be in top 10
Probably one of the best of 2015 - Jiorl
The whole list is metal and Coldplay.
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
One of the best albums of all time. - DCfnaf
Without doubt it's the best album of 2015 - peyman_eun
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
Best album in last 30 years.
This is music that makes you FEEL. - Caleb90003 Comments
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.
Hey, Maiden is awesome, but there's a bunch of awesome "garbage" on here as well. - The_Crimson_King
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
I love The Great Unknown2 Comments
Best album of 2015 without a doubt.
Every song on here blows my mind. They are going to be awesome in concert.
Please No. Twenty One Pilots Was Good For Like 5 Minutes Then I Realized That I Wanted My Music To Be Enjoyable - 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. - iLuc4 Comments
This is my favorite for sure. The atmosphere and the overall organic sound work splendedly. - Caleb9000
Amazing album full of variety, catchy hooks and beautiful music. best songs: realiti, kill v maim, venus fly and art angels.
Emotion is such an amazing album! "Your Type" is one of the best songs of all time, in my opinion.
All the way this is the best album of all time! - Izalien
This deserves to be so much higher! Such an amazing album from an amazing singer!
If this is 4, then Badlands should be 1. Actually, Badlands should be 1 anyways.3 Comments
How is this outside the top 10. do y'all really listened to 2015 albums?
Jet pack blues is awesome!
Centuries, Jet Pack Blues, The Kids Aren't Alright - growlbunny
Honestly really underrated. I don’t care (pun not intended) how much you hate the singles. My 2 cents on them is that Immortals is the weakest song in the album but not necessarily bad, Centuries is good and has an amazing headbang opportunity but is otherwise not the greatest and Uma Thurman is fun with nonsensical lyrics. But, wow, are songs like Novocaine, Irresistible, Jet Pack Blues and even the title track (which is kinda growing on me the more I listen to it) all really good in their own ways.
Thanks for readng my pointless review thing of a 3 year old album from a band that people say hasn’t been good since 2009 (obviously not true in my opinion).
Wow. I'm highly impressed. His lyrical prowess and wide range of musical tastes only makes this album even better. And while I think "To Pimp a Butterfly" by Kendrick Lamar might actually be the best of 2015, I just voted for this anyways! The one-two knockout punch of "Real Life" and "Losers" start this album off on a very melancholy, Eeyore-ish vibe, while the next song, "Tell Your Friends", only adds to the drama, telling lustful tales of sex, drugs, and whatever comes into his mentally disturbed mind (this album is essentially the alt-R&B modern version of Guns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction", of which he most certainly has). After that comes "Often", "The Hills", and "Acquainted", of which all are primarily focused on sex (however, "The Hills" references drug abuse and rehab stints). After that comes what is most likely The Weeknd's biggest hit thus far, "Can't Feel My Face", ...more
Though this is The Weeknd's weakest it's still brilliantly made. Wow The Weeknd is phenomenal. 8/10 for this album. - AlphaQ
Favorite songs: The Hills, Can't Feel My Face, Often - Mcgillacuddy
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 songs2 Comments
Best album of 2015 - tri060397
Why did this take a huge hit? - ProPanda
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
This is one of the best albums I have ever listened to yet and you know its sometimes impossible to like a whole album, but this one changed that. Every song has its own little thing to love. The lyrics have improved a lot since his last EP (TRXYE) I'm so happy to be able to be on this journey with him and seeing his album at n.1 at some places.
This should be higher - christangrant
This soundtrack should be on one of the top tens this cd is so amazing, it tells you a story about a girl named Cry Baby. It also includes the storybook in the cd case. #MelanieMartinez #CryBaby - jaaaa
She is queen 🥰🥰 she brings smiles to hurt souls
Yess Mel SLAY
I love her music so dang much. Idc if you think her music is trash, but lemme tell you its not. WHY is it down at 61?! it needs to be higher, like the first one. AMAZING. 1000000000000/ 10 :D GO MELANIE I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT HER
This album sucked. :/ - SammySpore
Since 2011 Coldplay was terrible. there's only a few good songs
Great album1 Comment
The absolute best! This should be number 1. It would if people had good taste in music these days.
My favourite album of the year! every song on the album is great
This album is amazing. The Ninth Wave is close to perfection (that CHOIR and the epicness throughout the song). That son is my favorite album opener of all time. - PhoenixAura81
Epic, impressive, perfect. The album of the year for me. - Metal_Treasure
To the person saying it sucks.. It's seriously her best work since confessions on a dancefloor.. Its very personal and introspective, reminiscent of like a prayer
Finally Maddy recorded a great album! Yes, Bitch I'm Madonna is bad but the whole material is awesome - ElizaBsST
Great album! Annoying haters should shut up!
It should off the list. This album sucks!1 Comment
The highest-placed good album on this list is only #19... Smh
What is up with this site's obsession with manufactured, overproduced pop rock/metalcore?
Bjork is truly magnificent. Her instrumentals aren't what are always perfect but her powerful and beautiful vocals add tremendous amount of color and tell stories.
This list is a joke
Should be no. 2 after Carrie & Lowell.
Finally found this. Dr Dre is always awesome. - AlphaQ
I can't believe it. - DesL42
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.
Marilyn's best album since holy wood
