Top 50 Albums Of 2015

2015 was another special year for music, with a bevy of new releases signifying bold steps forward and break throughs. Usually the Speak Into My Good Eye year end list is an even split between Co-Editor Chris Rotolo and myself, but 2015’s iteration is just me flying solo dolo.

I’d like to take this time out to say thank you to everyone who participated in our 2nd Annual 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge, to those who came out to our showcases and to anyone who had a hand in making great original music in 2015.

Below you will find Speak Into My Good Eye’s Top 50 Albums of 2015, submitted without further comment from me. Just be sure to hit play if you haven’t come across any of these before or feel like re-visiting before officially welcoming 2016.

Wising you all a healthy a prosperous New Year!
