Name One Bad Song… I’ll wait. (2015)

I’m someone who likes to go out and find new songs and albums to listen to. I love finding new artists. 2016 was my year of experimenting and finding new stuff, and for some reason, it was of the stuff I missed in 2015.

Looking back now, I see that 2015, for me, was an amazing year in music.

These are my favorite releases from 2015 in order of release date. (Sorry if the explanations suck. I listen to music I don’t talk about it.)

Vulnicura – Bjork

Electronic dance music, Ambient music, Acoustic music, Avant-garde music

The album itself didn’t grow on me until months later. I love this record. It is about her divorce, so it’s very raw and emotional. If you buy a physical copy of this record, before each songs’ lyrics, there is a date to which the time period the song represents. (ie. 6 monhs before, 2 months before, 6 weeks after.) That was special to me because it is very real.

Hits: Stonemilker, Black Lake, Family

Misses: literally none

Rebel Heart – Madonna

Pop music, Electronic dance music

This record is growing on me. I personally prefer Madonna’s older music. 1990’s Madonna to 2000’s Madonna is my favorite. The beginning of the album is flawless. Straight hits no misses and then kind of dips torwrds the end.

Hits: First Half

Misses: S.E.X., Rebel Heart, Body Shop, Holy Water

Froot – Marina and The Diamonds

Pop music, Electropop

This record is one of those “cult-following” records. It’s us great. The songs are a mix between the compositions of “Electra Heart” and the lyrics of “The Family Jewels.” (Her past two albums)

Here, she talks a lot about life and questions things. It is an introspection record.

Hits: Every song

Misses: literally none

I’ve been a fan of Zedd for years so this was one of those have to buy records. I got it as soon as it dropped and it’s good. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s good.
