2015: My Top Music

According to Spotify analytics I listened to what is the equivalent of 13 days worth of music this past year. All in all, all of my life I have loved music and I still take in albums almost daily; my genres of choice, again according to Spotify data, were chamber pop, hip hop, screamo, noise pop, and alternative metal.

Enough with the data-analytics that appears to know me quite well (I welcome the flying-spaghetti Spotify overlord God) – here are my favorite albums of the year.
