Best of 2015 by Danny R. Phillips

Top 10 of the Year (in no particular order)

By Danny R. Phillips

When compiling my end of the year lists, much thought and stress come into play. The sheer lack of great albums in 2015 is startling. I heard more mediocre or outright shitty albums this year than I care to recount so their memories will be banished from my data banks as soon as I hit send on this list. Thank God. Here is my top ten of the year along with a few honorable mentions. Here is to 2016 being, I hope, the opposite of the retched compost heap that was 2015.


Clear Plastic Masks – Being There

Built to Spill – Untethered Moon

Failure – The Heart of a Monster


Vietcong – Vietcong

Death Cab for Cutie – Kintsugi

Beat Happening Look Around (an anthology)


Murder by Death Big Dark Love

Screaming Females – Rose Mountain

Jason Isbell – Something More Than Free


Foo Fighters – Saint Cecilia

Honorable Mentions: Sleater-Kinney No Cities to Love, Baroness Purple, Cage the Elephant Tell Me I’m Pretty, Wilco Star Wars, Tame Impala Currents
