My Top 20 Favorite Albums of 2015

I am probably going to be one of the few people on this planet that did not think 2015 was a great year for music. It wasn't bad per say, more like mediocre and most of the mediocrity coming from the EBM scene (sorry but I have never had to snooze so much through so much dull music in one year). In the past three years, the music output has been incredible, this year not so much. Much of the year was rather so-so but it wasn't until fall did I hear some excellent music. I am hoping for a better year in 2016. Despite the uninteresting and uninspiring year in music, I was fortunate to find some gems in a sea of mediocre music and here is my top 15 picks of 2015.

01. SPC ECO: Dark Matter

02. Tarja Turunen: Ave Maria En Plein Air

03. Grimes: Art Angels

04. Conjure One: Holoscenic

05. Lana Del Rey: Honeymoon

06. Ashbury Heights: The Looking Glass Society

07. Invocation Array: A Color For Fiction

08. A-HA: Cast in Steel

09. Chvrches: Every Open Eye

10. Chandeen: Winter Reverbs

11. Angel Haze: Back to the Woods

12. Frozen Plasma: Dekadenz

13. Black Violin: Stereotypes

14. Dave Gahan and Soulsavers: Angels and Ghosts

15. Emika: Drei

16. Nightwish: Endless Forms Most Beautiful

17. Delta Rae: After It All

18. Pegasus Asteroid: The Fog

19. Re/Vision: The SkyQode Tribute to De/Vision
