Top albums of 2015

While I apparently listened to a little more music this year than last year, I feel like I "discovered" even less than 2014, which I considered to be a down year for me.  My main reason for stating this is that most of the albums on this list are by artists that I have previously listened to - there are barely any by artists that were new to me this year.  Nevertheless, there's just about enough variety to make this a decent effort.

New for this year, I will link to the full albums (where available) on YouTube, since YouTube Music now makes it possible to find pretty much anything.  I will still include a playlist of my favorite song from each album for those who want a briefer sample of them.

Also, to make up a bit for last year, I will add a couple of albums that I totally missed from 2014 that I really enjoyed this past year.
