My Favorite Albums of 2015 So Far [Part 3]


Here’s the last 5. 15-11 here and 10-6 here.

5. Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment – Surf

Chance the Rapper is Morris Day and The Social Experiment is The Time. This album was unfairly labeled as a Chance album, but he’s just here to lend his quirkiness to a talented group of individuals. The results are great.

4. Young Fathers – White Men Are Black Men Too

Young Fathers-White Men Are Black Men too

I already shared my thoughts on this album. Go take a look.

3. Hiatus Kaiyote – Choose Your Weapon 

Hiatus Kuiyote-Choose Your Weapon

Same as above.

2. Florence + The Machine – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

This is becoming a trend, eh?

1. Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly

635621187846228871-LAMAR-PIMP-BUTTERFLY-MUS-jy-4872-

Don’t tell me you were surprised?

Albums that barely missed the cut:

  • Big Sean – Dark Sky Paradise
  • Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell
  • Curren$y – Pilot Talk III/More Saturday Night Care Tunes
  • Future – Monster/Beast Mode/56 Nights (I know Monster came out last year but this is a trilogy to me)
  • Boosie Badass – Touchdown 2 Cause Hell
  • Kehlani – You Should Be Here
  • Snoop – Bush

A Few Albums that disappointed me:

  • Drake – If You’re Reading this, glad to know you’re awake now because you fell asleep while listening
  • A$AP Rocky – A.L.L.A. (not bad, just not great. Mediocre rap albums <)
  • Passion Pit – Kindred (siiiiiiiigh)
  • Dom Kennedy by Someone Pretending to be Dom Kennedy

Albums that we all should be looking forward to:

  • Leon Bridges – Comin Home (came out Tuesday, but still)
  • Kanye West – Swish(?) (He trolled us for Yeezus, hopefully this is the REAL album)
  • Drake – Views from the 6 (Seriously Drake, stop making trap music)
  • Nas – TBA
  • Jay Rock – TBA
  • Tame Impala – Currents
  • Bilal – In Another Life
  • Miguel – Wildheart
  • Vince Staples – Summertime 06
  • Frank Ocean -…I don’t know…
  • Beach House – Depression Cherry
  • Of Monsters and Men – Beneath the Skin
  • Disclosue – Caracal

And that concludes my list. Seriously though, if you have an album that wasn’t mentioned AT ALL leave a comment, because obviously I need to check it out.
