2015 has been our first year of operation under our new name The Student Playlist, and it’s been a year of steady expansion. There are now five of us, with a view to adding yet more talented, passionate writers in the new year as we continue in our quest to point out the best new music, rediscover old albums, both stone-cold classics and hidden treasures, and cause lively debate with our lists and features.
In the spirit of the latter, all of us got together at the start of December to put together our combined Top 50 Albums of 2015. The only rule was that an album had to have been awarded 7/10 or higher by the original reviewer to qualify for consideration. The rest was down to beer-fuelled debate.
We hope you agree, and that you discover something you love. Happy listening!
We recommend installing Spotify for free on your laptop, tablet or phone in order to access the albums when you click (LISTEN).
