Best Of 2015

As promised, here's the list of my 50 favourite albums of 2015. Despite the title, these aren't really an objective "best", but a purely personal list of albums I enjoyed this year. However, some of them are pretty indisputable "bests" (see: #2). Regardless, I hope you enjoy, and give some a try if you haven't heard them. I didn't include links here because some of them are a copyright claim waiting to happen, though a good chunk of them do appear on the blog already. Enjoy, and please feel free to share your favourites of the year, I'm really curious to know.
