15. Björk - Vulnicura

January 20, 2015
Critic Score

The enormous visceral power of Vulnicura lies perhaps in its utter lack of pity play; rather, Björk transforms every emotion into a monumental sonic peak or valley.

5. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell

March 31, 2015

Carrie & Lowell is a miracle of aesthetic balance—a calm and considered confession. It is the roaring in your ears as you look out to sea with the entirety of the known world behind you.

2. Tame Impala - Currents

July 17, 2015
Critic Score
83
37 reviews

An album with such an emphasis on bricolage could have easily become lifeless, but Parker’s tweaks to the Tame Impala formula all grant Currents a deeper sense of humanity.

1. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly

March 16, 2015
Critic Score
95
38 reviews

Every genius idea is accompanied by a terrible one, and for that To Pimp a Butterfly is Kendrick Lamar’s masterpiece—fascinating, upsetting, and somehow totally wrong.
