71. Drinks - Hermits On Holiday

August 21, 2015
Critic Score
75
14 reviews

The end result is something that’s freaky and funny, as rigorously experimental as it is gleefully entertaining.

65. Bop English - Constant Bop

April 14, 2015
Critic Score
83
6 reviews
A fast-paced, multi-faceted, furiously entertaining record that gradually reveals hidden emotional depths? Chalk another one up to the man in White Denim.

62. Titus Andronicus - The Most Lamentable Tragedy

July 28, 2015
Critic Score
81
28 reviews

The Most Lamentable Tragedy feels like a quintessentially modern album, a scintillating examination of mania and neurosis that uses the history of rock’n’roll as mere stage dressing for its bravura performance.

56. Deerhunter - Fading Frontier

October 16, 2015
Critic Score

While matters are not necessarily so sunny throughout the album’s entirety, never before has Deerhunter’s brand of noise been such a joyful one.

51. Algiers - Algiers

49. Songhoy Blues - Music In Exile

48. My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall

May 4, 2015
Critic Score
75
24 reviews

The Waterfall is ... perfectly attuned to its immediate surroundings, but it also seeks to channel a more all-encompassing spirit.

46. Olivia Chaney - The Longest River

April 28, 2015
Critic Score
83
3 reviews

45. Panda Bear - Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper

January 13, 2015
Critic Score
80
31 reviews

His work is possibly the most interesting as a collision point between hippy music old and new.

44. Laura Marling - Short Movie

March 23, 2015
Critic Score
81
24 reviews

It's more defiant and distinct than anything she’s done before, testament to her first go at self-production. But what really sets it apart from her catalogue is her desire to break the cycle, to let go and let herself be young.

39. Paul Weller - Saturns Pattern

May 18, 2015
Critic Score
77
12 reviews

There are fade outs and fade ins mid-song, vocals come heavily treated, instruments are strafed with sound effects; essentially, Weller is making a virtue of his processes here.

37. Low - Ones and Sixes

September 11, 2015
Critic Score
77
22 reviews

36. Destroyer - Poison Season

August 28, 2015
Critic Score
82
26 reviews

On Poison Season, Bejar re-embraces street rock, and recontextualises it as well.

34. FFS - FFS

June 8, 2015
Critic Score
76
19 reviews

28. Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba - Ba Power

April 24, 2015
Critic Score
83
6 reviews

Ba Power feels like another dramatic leap forward and a further landmark in the integration of African tribal rhythms and western rock’n’roll.

27. Jamie xx - In Colour

June 1, 2015
Critic Score
84
33 reviews

What In Colour reveals is the sheer scope of Smith’s skills as a songwriter and producer. The xx on ecstasy: not a bad idea at all.

26. Joanna Newsom - Divers

October 23, 2015
Critic Score
87
32 reviews
