I haven't heard his last few albums, but I like that Feel The Lightning song from the 2015 album quite a bit.

Get onto that, man. "Golden Number" is worth it alone.

I was never a Coldplay fan so I don't torture myself with their new albums. Muse, on the other hand, are a band I once loved, and I would still rate Origin of Symmetry in a top fifty albums of all time list, probably even the top thirty. So I can't help but check out the new material, even if Absolution was the last great thing they've done. Plus it's funny to see what stupid shit Bellamy spouts.

The first was such a great chillwave album, a classic of the genre and his most consistent. The second's patchier but has probably my favourite Neon Indian song, "Hex Girlfriend". The new one... total meh. Too much funk influence, for one thing. I don't feel as let down ever since I started skipping the first few tracks, and "Slumlord" is genuinely good, but I expected so much more.

B&C's 2015 Albums of the Year AKA The One Time A Year Peef Uses Math

Black Messiah is a 2014 album. Probably the best 2014 album.

The only reason any publications mentioned it on their lists this year is because they rushed their 2014 lists out. They're being released far too early these days in an effort to get a jump on the competition and it screws over anything released after Thanksgiving.

Yeah. Black Messiah got a lot of votes here last year (including a few AOTY votes).

Clearly bands should not release albums in December.

January also appears to be a bad idea if you want anybody to recall it by year's end.

every open eye is not a good album but it's got good songs, which makes me feel weird about the album because individual songs are amazing but if they are put together in the album they sound so uneventful.

Aww shit, I like this list.

I actually haven't heard Hotline Miami 2 but if it's anything like the first one I'll adore it.

It's substantially better than the Hotline Miami 1 soundtrack, which is an astounding achievement in itself.

If it wasn't a compilation, and they edited it down to the best hour it'd be in the top five, easily. Maybe even top three. There is some really good hip-hop/electronica on there.

But yeah, even despite the fact that it needs to be edited, hearing the entire thing in one go at least once is highly recommended.

Too bad I couldn't get a copy of the vinyl edition because it's banned here

Liam, I had you pegged as a Newsom detractor.
