Indeed Nasir. You will have to rectify that asap

I wanted that Komara album in my list Sagi but couldn't find the room
The same goes for Battles newest and a whole bunch of others.

Hi Karl - good to see you again.
If you're planning on a little jootoobing then check out Finnish band Circle's Pharaoh Overlord;-) Krautrock a la Navajo with basstrombone in copious amounts. Somewhat repetitive yet wonderfully hypnotic. I actually stumbled back n forth between it and Silver Mountain for my AOTY.

I am also happy about Reve General, whose debut is superb. Personally, I would have liked William D. Drake to rank higher (as it did, surprisingly, in the DPRP Collabs list), though I understand it's an album that will not necessarily appeal to everyone.

I have 2 in the top 10 and 4 in the top 20.  Makes me kind of sad that I spent so much time listening to 2015 albums over the last couple of months in order to prepare my list and it had zero impact on the top 10, which would have been the exact same without my list.  Unhappy  Oh well, I guess given that the downside meant that I got to listen to whole lot of great music doesn't make it such a bad thing.  LOL  The only album I haven't heard in the top 10 is the one from Unreal City, which I wasn't able to find streaming on-line.  The other 9 albums are solid releases and although none of them made my personal top 10, no complaints from me.

Thanks for compiling it Andy.  I am curious to see what the list looks like if you only include the collaborators top 10 votes, instead of 20.  I wonder if it makes any difference.

It didn't come up when I searched for it this weekend.  Strange.  Ahh...it is not under Unreal City.  It is under Unreal City Prog Band.

Thanks to Andy and all the others for the hard work. I haven't heard much stuff from last year due to a complete lack of free time but I'll get to listening to all of that right away.

My top three were very close so I could have easily picked VAK number one and well it placed at 108.
I'm looking forward to that Komara cd.

Wow...I'm quite thrilled that ol' Stevie didn't take the top spot (though I would say that him and Riverside are too high on the list...but I understand why).

Not a bad list this year. 4 of mine made the cut, which I imagine is the record (or ties the record) (though with the expanded format percentage wise I'm still quite the outlier)

Great list, full of wonderful titles, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see God, er Wilson denied the top spot! Well done to Anekdoten with a career-best album (to date).

Very happy to see two well-deserved terrific Italian discs rate so highly as well.
