The Best Albums of 2015

Hang on, how is it January 2nd already? And for that matter, when did it become 2016?

This year seems to have flown by in a whirlwind of new jobs, new opportunities and commuting, with 2016 set to follow a similar pattern. Last night I woke up in a cold sweat, racking my brains for something I was meant to have done. I finished all of my work before Christmas, didn't I? I bought all of the family presents I'm sure. And then it hit me: I haven't compiled my Best Albums of 2015 list! Now an annual tradition only I care about, it adds an element of much needed routine to the Christmas break, and allows me to reflect on some of the beautiful sounds which infiltrated my ears this year. So without further ado, in reverse order, here we go...
