Collaborations are great, new tracks give us life, and music videos provide the perfect setting for both, but what could be better than a stellar album to jam out to in our cars, houses, and even at the office (headphones probably not optional)? So, on the last day of the year 2015, we’ve come together to bring you the best offerings of the past twelve months. The only downfall? You won’t have enough time to listen to all of the albums before the year closes out–but you can try.

1. American Beauty/American Psycho – Fall Out Boy (Tom Cheney)

2. Blurryface – Twenty One Pilots (Eddie Barella)

3. Beauty Behind the Madness – The Weeknd (Sherin Nicole)


4. Life’s Not Out To Get You – Neck Deep (Matt Vogel)

5. 35XXXV – One OK Rock (Cindy Tenicela)

6. If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late – Drake (Kraddy)



7. True Brew – Millencolin (Brad Lopez)

8. The American Dream Is Dead – Giants At Large (Mike Fishkin)

9. Hear You – Toe (Ryan Wapner)

10. American Beauty/American Psycho – Fall Out Boy / Blurryface – twenty one pilots (Alex Bear)

“We were really spoilt this year with a new album from two of the biggest names in our scene, twenty one pilots and Fall Out Boy. Both Blurryface and American Beauty/American Psycho were groundbreaking in their own right, with layer upon layer of stunning musicality, razor-sharp insights into the human condition, and downright badassery. I could go on and on about these albums, but it might cut into my time alternating between these two records for the rest of time.”

11. Badlands – Halsey (Emillie Marvel)

“After seeing my two-thousandth Tumblr post regarding the album, I decided it was time to take a trip to the Badlands. The sugary sweet sound of  “Colors” reeled me in, the moody lyricism of “Young God” had me clicking download, and by the time “Control” kicked in, I was declaring my love of the collection to everyone I knew. And I still haven’t stopped hitting replay.”

12. American Candy – The Maine (Dan Brink)

13. I, No Longer – Pentimento (Eleanor Grace)

14. That’s the Spirit – Bring Me the Horizon (Sam Devotta)

15. No Closer to Heaven – The Wonder Years (Hannah Pierangelo)

16. Blurryface – twenty one pilots (Emily Yee)









17. Madness – Sleeping With Sirens / American Candy – The Maine (Olivia Carpenter)

18. Peripheral Vision – Turnover (Hannah Hines)

19. Peripheral Vision – Turnover (Dana Reandelar)
