Top 15 Albums of 2015

As with the Top 15 Songs, choosing the Top 15 Albums of 2015 was really hard. I listened to many that I’ve reviewed and those that I haven’t, taking in their initial and enduring emotional, intellectual, and spiritual impact on me.

Here are the brilliant records that came out of that process:
