    Default Dynamic Top Albums of 2015

    List your top ten (or more) albums of the year here, update as often as necessary. Not designed to be a thread for on-going discussion about albums, or to replace the year end lists threads, but instead is merely a quick reference for on-going recommendations, and for a sense of what other people are listening to. So ideally, one post per person in this thread should be entirely sufficient. If you want to talk about an album someone likes, take it to the Tell Us About 2015 Releases thread or another appropriate thread.

    For more, see the prior thread from 2014.

    1. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell
    2. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear
    3. Lower Dens - Escape from Evil
    4. Dwight Yoakam - Second Hand Heart
    5. Viet Cong - Viet Cong
    6. Tobias Jesso Jr. - Goon
    7. Sleater-Kinney - No Cities to Love
    8. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly
    9. Title Fight - Hyperview
    10. Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit

    1. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
    2. Sleater-Kinney - No Cities to Love
    3. Tobias Jesso Jr. - Goon
    4. Kali Uchis - Por Vida
    5. BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul
    6. Future Brown - Future Brown
    7. The Pop Group - Citizen Zombie
    8. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear
    9. Joey Bada$$ - B4.DA.$$
    10. Title Fight - Hyperview

    Lots of great music so far, and there are still a lot of albums that I haven't gotten around to yet (ex. Vulnicura)
    On the subject of To Pimp a Butterfly, I've listened to it 4 times so far, and it's mindblowing how well crafted it is. It can be overwhelming initially... but I think it's a marvel of an album. I feel like there's still SO much to digest, and each listen is more rewarding than the last. I am excited to see if anything this year can top it for me

    01 Bjork - Vulnicura
    02 Father John Misty - I Love You Honeybear
    03 Modest Mouse - Strangers to Ourselves
    04 Tobias Jesso Jr - Goon
    05 Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit

    About 1/4 of the way through the year and I feel I have a pretty solid and locked-in top 5. Kendrick might creep its way up in there, I'm digging the jazz vibes.
