Pop-Break’s Best Albums of 2015

ALBUMS2015

Here at Pop-Break.com we have a great group of music writers. What makes them so great? Everyone listens to a little bit of everything so the diversity of our top 10 album lists is expansive providing us with one of the most eclectic lists that I’ve ever seen. From 10 contributors we have 80 different and wonderful albums.

So what reigned over the Pop-Break.com list? Well the most reoccurring on our top 10s is a tie between Adele and Kendrick Lamar, each appearing on four separate lists. As one can imagine, Adele’s newest album, 25, is being hailed one of the top albums of the decade so she has more than earned her spot.

Ten other albums appeared on more than one list, the new Halsey, Bring me the Horizon, Zac Brown Band, Sevendust, Chvrchs, The Weekend, Enter Shikiri, Miguel, Dr. Dre, and City and Color albums. What can I say? We represent and respect everything from rock to rap to country and love every minute of it.
