Hackskeptic’s Top 20 Albums Of 2015


2015 was an extraordinary year. Some great new music to indulge in, but unfortunately not enough time to write my reviews and general daily music tosh. In September, Mrs Hackskeptic and I moved home which meant that my attention to the site had to be curtailed whilst we decorated, hung curtains…all the usual stuff. By November we were pretty much moved in, but with the year drawing to a close I decided to take a break from blogging to re-charge the batteries. So, full of new found vim and vigour I’m back, and better late than never, here are my favourite albums from 2015.

16 – Richard Thompson – Still (Proper/Fantasy)
15 – Wilco – Star Wars (dBPM)

  1. Great to see you’re back and a great list as well! I haven’t really given that new New Order album a thorough listen. Is it really that good?
