Top 20 Albums of 2015

2015 was a pretty damn good year for music. From World to wonderful to “Who the Hell was that?!?”

Although there were tons of good albums out last year, these are my personal favorites. These are the ones that stuck out to me, & found their way into my player on more than one occasion. They are (in absolutely no particular order):

The Harvest Season Band – Let Your Love Burn Bright

  1. Hey Chris, you have some really good picks on here. I had a chance to see JD MCPherson last year in support of that album. It was an amazing show. I am in agreement with you on about half the albums. I have not listened to the others, but I will. Nice site btw.
