  1. 4 of my 5 top albums are here :-D

    You really need to listen to Confident again :-P

  2. Nice list. Glad to see Kendrick and Carly Rae Jepsen ranked high.

  3. Yay!!!! Glad to see the love for Kendrick Lamar. It is an amazing album. My one small disagreement on it is that I think The Blacker the Berry is a better (and more poignant) song that King Kunta. Great post. I need check out a bunch of the others you have listed.

    1. Thanks. The Blacker the Berry is a brilliant track, but there are several on the album I could list.

  4. We have the same #1! Glad you were won over by Currents, that album by Tame Impala got better the more I played it and is right now my #2 album of 2015

    1. Awesome! Yeah, I forgot how much I love Currents, but I couldn't even find room to nominate it for a SoundSpec. :(
