KAPTIN IS DEAD – 30 ALBUM FAVOURITES OF 2015

I did start to write about each of these but then realised that some of them didn’t quite stand up to scrutiny. This doesn’t mean they weren’t great albums, just that I couldn’t quite put my finger on why and couldn’t be arsed waiting around for the answers. So here’s a list without reason, however I’ve left a track from each so you can make up your own mind if you want to venture further. I will say that some are included, not for any hugely artistic breakthroughs, but because I played them to death and they seemed to suit any situation. Whilst others only got played once, but managed to open up new areas of my mind and soul in the process. Hopefully you can discover something new, or find an excuse to revisit an album you loved also. These are in no particular order:
