(Hopefully) The Final 2015 List of 2015

I know we're probably worn out by these lists by now, but fuck it I've worked too much on this list already and this was an incredible year for music. I didn't have enough time this month to give all these albums descriptions so I only stuck to my top 10. And with that out of the way, let's begin.

10Mayday Parade
Black Lines


Emo-Pop
Mayday Parade's best since their debut, making some of the catchiest songs of the year, mixing their style of emo-pop with some new elements such as a bit of post-hardcore influence and a more stadium rock feel.
Best Tracks
1. One Of Us
2. All On Me
3. Until You're Big Enough
4.7/5
9Hop Along
Painted Shut


Indie Rock
Now I know alone the lyrics on this album may not sound very intriguing for the most part, all of these songs are just about Frances' life events, and a lot of the time not even interesting life events. But the way shes sings those lyrics with her incredible voice of power, a nice bit of rasp, and her sporadic vocal style, it doesn't matter, it'll make you interested along with the brilliantly catchy indie rock instrumentation going on. Nothing reaches quite the heights of Tibetan Pop Stars, but then again, what does?
Best Track
1. Texas Funeral
2. Sister Cities
3. Waitress
4.7/5
8Sleaford Mods
Key Markets


Post-Punk, Art Punk
This was probably the best album I went into this year completely unknowing of what it is, I had no idea what t expect, but I was more than happy with the results. A fairly simple concept, repetitive instrumentals consisting only of bass and drums and atop of that some English guy ranting about everything, but what came out is a blood-pumping, anger-fueled, fun time full of clever lyrics ranging from political to hilarious. Hidden gem of the year.
Best Tracks
1. In Quiet Streets
2. Live Tonight
3. Bronx in a Six
4.7/5
7Dance Gavin Dance
Instant Gratification


Post-Hardcore
With how much I've been defending this thing all year it should be no surprise it's this high. This album is a delectable treat, with DGD's brand of "pop-core" they've been wearing recently this album is ear-worm after ear-worm of catchy melodic post-harcore goodness. It may not be the most intellectual or philosophical album but damn is it the most fun I've had listening to an album from this year.
Best Tracks
1. Death of a Strawberry
2. Variation
3. Awkward
4.7/5
6Sorority Noise
Joy, Departed


The best emo album of the year for sure, Sorority Noise deliever a greatly diverse set of self-deprecating, poetic, catchy emo anthems, from the sinister Your Soft Blood to the power pop-influenced Mononokay. However this album does something that seperates it from a lot of other recent emo releases: look on the bright-side. In the second half of the album the songs start build up to these crescendos of realisation of self-confidence. If you're feeling down in the dumps give this a spin and hopefully it'll make you feel a bit better.
Best Tracks
1. Mononokay
2. Art School Wannabe
3. When I See You (Timberwolf)
4.7/5
5Enter Shikari
The Mindsweep


Post-Hardcore
The word "epic" gets thrown around a lot, and usually when someone says something is epic, what they really mean is it's just very good, but The Mindsweep is epic. It sounds huge, it feels huge, it's an adventure album if I've ever heard one. Enter Shikari just keep on maturing and expanding their sound. The colossal post-hardcore instrumentation, mixed with flourishes of electronica and orchestra, plus the biting political lyrics sung and screamed by Rou Reynolds with his incredible range make this an album not to be passed over, matter what any online pretentious hipster (or a certain really annoying user who starts with a 't') will tell you.
Best Tracks
1. Dear Future Historians...
2. Torn Apart
3. The Last Garrison
4.7/5
4Twenty One Pilots
Blurryface


Pop Rap, Indie Pop
Yeah I know, you're probably scoffing at this being so high on the list. But look I know Blurryface is flawed, the lyrics are clumsy, some of the songs aren't too far off sounding like the songs on the radio they're criticising and Tyler Joseph's voice can be annoying to some (not to me). But there's not a single album this year that I related to more, the lyrics are clumsy and dorky yes that's undeniable but that's what gives them more charm to me and makes the emotion seem more raw. It's not perfect but damn do I love it.
Best Tracks
1. Not Today
2. Goner
3. We Don't Believe What's On TV
4.7/5
3Kamasi Washington
The Epic


Spiritual Jazz
Now I'll admit I don't know a lot about jazz, with this being my first proper dive into the genre, but I'd be lying if I said this album wasn't a work of art. Kamasi Washington couldn't of picked a more suitable title for the album, coming in at nearly 3 hours long, it might seem like a lot to get through but once you're in the right mood this album is a breeze to listen to.
Best Tracks
1. Clair de Lune
2. Malcolm's Theme
3. The Rhythm Changes
5/5
2Destroyer
Poison Season


Chamber Pop
Sophisticated, tight, beautiful, orchestral, Destroyer releases an outstandingly brilliant album full of poetic lyrics and not a single weak track in sight. I can see why Dan Bejar's voice might be a turn-off to some people but the give the album a chance, it's well worth your time in my opinion.
Best Tracks
1. Hell
2. Midnight Meet The Rain
3. Forces From Above
5/5
1Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly


West Coast Hip Hop, Conscious Hip Hop, Jazz Rap
Boy, what is there to say about TPAB that hasn't been already (not much but I'm still gonna try my best to explain why this album is amazing). Kendrick somehow tops his last modern classic, 'Good Kid, M.A.A.d City' with this mix of conscious hip hop, hardcore hip hop and jazz fusion, touching on everything from modern racism, the hypocrisy of the black community, the evils of money and the music industry, self hatred and learning to love yourself, with as many different moods and vibes as possible; angry, dark, upbeat, melancholy, and to top it all off extremely detailed instrumentals, a phenomenal guest list, and not to mention the absolutely beautiful poem being recited throughout the entire album that ends with one of the best album climaxes in recent history. I knew since I heard this album back in March it would be at the top of the list, and I really can't think of anything more deserving.
5/5
