The Flipside 50 Top Albums of 2015

The Flipside 50-Top Albums of 2015

2015 is almost over and we could all be thankful for that. It was an emotional train wreck for me personally. Reflecting on the year is painful.

Yes folks, that time of the year, time to reflect back on the past 365 days of audio eutopian dribble. I won't be airing the radio show with the top 50 albums of the past 12 months on Guilford College radio with Flipside 6th annual countdown of the top albums of 2015.

The year has been, well, one for the ages. Delta year, delta being the symbol of change. I stopped doing the radio show in September, a gut wrenching decision, I  lost touch with my spiritual journey into music and treated it like a church with the radio show as a pulpit. I haven't lost all love of music, just the means of delivery.

But I did have a chance to sample a number of the best indie, alt and whatever-genre-you-want-to-attach rock. This year was solid but like last year, no defining album

This is the culmination of 12 months of messed emotions . Enjoy......
