Here are the 10 best albums of 2015:
This album probably would've been ranked higher, if I wasn't too busy liking shit and going outside to listen to it all year.
Listen to "Faucet"
9. The Weeknd - Beauty Behind the Madness (XO/Republic)
And the winner for "album playing during the most coke-fuel sexcapades, 2015 edition" goes to...
Listen to "Acquainted"
8. Title Fight - Hyperview (ANTI-)
I just want everyone to know Pitchfork gave this album a 7.6, which is the highest conceivable score those butt-sniffers will give a non-gimmick punk band. I also want everyone to know this isn't even really a punk album, so stop being a herb and listen to it.
Listen to "Murder Your Memory"
|Self Defense Family|
If you ever find yourself thinking, "man, I really like Future, but I wish I could understand what the fuck he was saying," Gangster Gibbs is probably your man.
Listen to "Careless"
6. Future - DS2 (A1/Freebandz/Epic)
If you ever find yourself thinking, "man, I really like Freddie Gibbs, but I wish I couldn't understand what the fuck he was saying," Future is probably your man.
5. Self Defense Family - Heaven is Earth (Deathwish)
This is the best album to date from a band who puts out a lot of albums.
Quentin Miller Drake - If You're Reading This it's Too Late (Cash Money)
2015: the year Drake became a meme.
3. Young Thug - Barter 6 (300/Atlantic)
Fwagatwagabrrapojaba-kakakaka-raks-raks-raaaaaaaaaaaks (wut?) bhaaeeeyaah-whagablagaboochie (blap-blap-SKREEEEEE) tdsafagjadboifagiea-eee-ee-groceriiieeeeeeeeezzzze (tugga-tugga-twAAH)
2. Taylor Swift - 1989 (Big Machine)
Did I put this album at number two because it was released in 2014, or do I actually like it less than the album I put at number one? Tune in five years from now, to my End of the Decade special, to find out!
|War on Women|
1. War on Women - War on Women (Bridge 9)
PSA to anyone born after 1985: It's the year 2015. If you don't fuck with hardcore and feminism by now, either read a book or kill yourself. As for the album - the lyrics are provocative and often hilarious, the guitar is super-catchy, the drumming is really tight, and I can't hear the bass in the mix. 10/10.
Big Sean - Dead Sky Paradise
Meek Mill - Dreams Worth More Than Money
Jazz Cartier - Marauding in Paradise
Kid Ink - Full Speed
Wiki - Lil' Me
The Story So Far - S/T
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
