    Well, we've reached a year I'm not super familiar with as I was on a self imposed music exile at the time, however I've gone back in the past couple years since I got back into music and discovered some gems from this year. My list just isn't as long as normal. Anyway, eligible albums were released between Jan 1 and Dec 31, 2015. Here's my list, in alphabetical order:
    Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit And Think, Sometimes I Just Sit
    Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth
    Dawes - All Your Favorite Bands
    Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear
    Ghost - Meliora
    Chris Isaak - First Comes The Night
    Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly
    Nathaniel Rateliff And The Night Sweats - Nathaniel Rateliff And The Night Sweats
    San Cisco - Gracetown
    Thee Oh Sees - Mutilator Defeated At Last

    Ok, your turn. Name as few or as many as you you wish! Have fun! Save the drama for Facebook.

    I have no recollection of what came out in any year since 1999, which, not coincidentally, happens to be the last year there was a radio station in my listening area that played contemporary music I liked. Also the year I came off the road and into the office. I don't count WNCW because they don't have stuff in rotation enough for me to become familiar with it.

    I'm not saying I don't buy new music, but it's like adding a glass of water to an overfull bathtub.

    Edit: As I said, I did buy some, but not many. Here's my list.
