TABN's Favorite Albums Of 2015

Postby Timotheus » Sat Dec 05, 2015 3:18 pm

Post your 10 favorite albums from 2015 in here. The #1 album gets 10 points, the #10 album gets only 1 point. If you post 7 albums, the #1 album will only get 7 points.

The deadline is December 30th. Not gonna do the fancy extra poll I did last year. You can edit your post till the 30th in case your list changes.

I'll do one for songs as well in a few days. That one will be even harder...

115 for me so far (lists like Alice's will give it a nice boost :D ), with Foals being the last one. That one might sneak into my top 10 after a few more listens.

I've listened to 64 (78 if we count EPs). Still a lot I haven't got a chance to listen to like Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls, Kamasi Washington - The Epic (I think it's 3 hours+ long) a lot of rap, etc.

Still need to give The Epic a listen as well. Gonna do it before the end of the year, but time is kinda running out, lol. Divers as well. The stream of that album when it was released didn't work for me and it's not on Spotify. Might have to buy it, because the stuff I heard on Youtube was really good.

#2 Soilwork - The Ride Majestic
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxcXFOL2-oE

#3 Smash Into Pieces - The Apocalypse DJ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pHTWL9Inkw

#4 Five Finger Death Punch - Got Your Six
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whVuQ3yJ-tQ&list=PL_GoLkDf8zVrBSdB-rfQtYyu679-CKzkm&index=2

#5 Papa Roach - F.E.A.R.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0_h7vUcnhs&index=2&list=PLzrRkSuSpF2NNf-A8BdcA64sQ4sMsD4dJ

Thats pretty much all top tear albums for me this year ^^ #9 and #10 is more like a honorable mention than anything...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhuCRh_j0Js

#10 All That Remains - The Order Of Things
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjvmjK6L1nA

Biggest disappointments came from Halestorm, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace.

Ok, so there's a bit of a problem. Gonna need your help to help with the order.

Steven Wilson - Hand Cannot Erase
Periphery - Alpha and Omega

These 2 are both tied, so just pick your favorite of the two. The one with the most votes will get the 3rd place.

Eaves - What Green Feels Like
Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls
Chelsea Wolfe - Abyss
Attalus - Into the Sea
Powerwolf - Blessed and Possessed

Pick your top three of these.
