RLLMUK'S FAVOURITE ALBUMS OF 2015 - RESULTS!


Recommended Posts

Great work as always - appreciated. The Floating Points album is on there twice (not sure which is the correct spelling) - 16 and 34.

Thank you - I think that puts it in the top 10. I'll wait for any other spots and then put up the revised version tomorrow evening.

I think I listened to one album out that entire list. I mostly listen to podcasts in my free time now, I find most music either bores me or annoys me these days. I listened to the Grimes album yesterday, I like the mash up between happy hardcore n pop n the other ravey elements but wasn't blown away or anything. I'll slowly work my way through the list over the year.

I've actually got four of the top ten, including the entire top three, this year. That's almost unheard of! Although I think I might have posted similar last year too... Rllmuk must be getting more mainstream :P

The first one I own is Number 15 and that's only at Number 15 because I gave it 10 points.

But I own both albums in joint 23rd! (It's a bit of a disgrace Bjork is so low. Especially below Joanna Newsom, which was a bit shit.)

When I was in my 20s I thought I'd always have my finger on the pulse, always be checking out a wide variety of music and even if I didn't like it I'd know what it was. Looking at this list makes me realise how disappointed my 28 year-old self would be with me today. Of the top 50 I've heard maybe 4 or 5 tops, and found myself thinking "wow, new order, Squarepusher, The Chemical Brothers all had albums out this year?" - pathetic. Will be checking out some of the albums mentioned for sure, but I suspect I'll end up falling back on all the stuff I seem to have settled on.

Notable that rllmuk's favourite album wasn't actually anyone's favourite album.

I think it got three 2nd and three 3rd places though, so it was amongst several peoples favourites rather than a "won because everyone thought it was just about worthy of a spot in the top ten" situation. Perhaps next year we could use Formula 1 style scoring (25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1) so being someone's top choice gives more of a boost :P Edit: jokey suggestion though, this way's cool!

Grimes would probably feature in my top 10, but I got the CD after I had already submitted my list and didn't fancy changing it around.

What I always like about these lists, there's always some band/artist I put in the search box a few years later, and realise someone was already telling me how great they were originally all along.

I realised I completely forgot an album for my top 10 which really should be there. Commiserations to Blanck Mass who would have secured themselves a place as high as 227 in the table.

Attempting to listen to each album in turn in this list over the coming few months.

I tried to listen to the Kendrik Lamar album again, but I just can't stand that guys voice. Really weak and ineffectual, and half the tunes on the album sound like jokes. I don't think I'll ever get his appeal.
