|The xSeanx Stamp Of Approval: 2015|
Finally! Everyones favourite list! The xSeanx Stamp Of Approval: Top albums and EPs of 2015 is here! Let's go!
2016, what a year eh? Never before have I had so many releases to choose from, which in one way has been nice, but at the same time very difficult. Except for the cemented top trio, I’ve really had to make an effort. That being said, I still feel like I missed out on A LOT of cool music, simply cause I haven’t had the time to listen to it all enough.
Even with the ones I did listen to, many of them missed out on the top 10, though they probably would have been guaranteed a place any other year. But heck, if next year isn’t as good, I guess I’ve at least got myself covered. Also, this year is a first in a few ways:
- I’ve actually felt I've had to disqualify a number of releases, all for different reasons, most of which should’ve been on the list.
- For the first time ever I have 3 (yes, THREE, TRE, TRES, TROIS!) releases on the top 10 courtesy of one label. (They should’ve been four, had it not been the fourth, the one I actually like/have listened to the most, was released last year.) Thanks to a certain dutch friend for getting me into this!
- No, it’s not a typo! There are actually two ”Grievances” on the list, both brilliant in their own way.
I could go on, but all in all I had to keep it to a top 10, so instead here’s the list:
