Covers suck, though. He didn't write the song. He did nothing really. Just figured out the chords and sung it. Kinda bullshit imo.

I will give you that. I am a big Adams fan, but probably will be the first to get kicked off the list as i find other good stuff.

For example, i just re-discovered Future People by Alabama Shakes. DAMN, that's a killer song. And while i love the Father John Misty Album as a whole, I have a hard time picking an extraordinarily strong song for my best of... Same with Churches and Grimes...

Thanks for the comment really

The 50 Best Albums of 2015

This is an interesting list. It's quite different to most other lists out there and it seems to focus heavily on electronic music. Most electronic albums I listened to this year were quite underwhelming so hopefully I can find some good stuff on there.

The only albums I really enjoyed, excluding the more accessible electronic albums like Caracal and In Colour, were Platform and Eleania and they didn't make my top 15. Garden of Delete is getting loads of praise but I've never really 'gotten' Oneohtrix Point Never. I always enjoy his albums to a certain extent but I never want to listen to them again. The same goes for Arca. Perhaps they're just not melodic enough for me. On the other hand I love the experimental side of Autechre so I don't understand why I can't get into them.

Good discussion in here, guys. This is what the thread's for.

I was about to listen to The Dear Hunter's new one but discovered they're a bunch of pretentious twits and have a 6 album story arc going. Decided not to Cobbler this one.
