It has to be said that 2015 has been a strange year, for one reason or another, and my review output has seriously suffered, due to this. This, however, has not curbed my voracious appetite for checking out new music and spreading the good word when possible, and this year has been another good one! There's always folk that'll complain saying every single year is shit, in terms of musical output, yet I rarely find that to be the case; there is always good new music out there, and I found an abundance in 2015.
A couple of quick things though, before we dive headlong into the fray. Firstly, I'd like to thank Trevor Proctor for keeping things ticking along here at The Lair, in terms of reviews and interviews etc. The man is a beast, and I am eternally grateful. Secondly, this is a list of my favorite albums of the year; albums that kicked my ass. The ones that I keep returning to, time and time again. Believe me when I say that there were many that didn't quite make it here, and I could quite easily have written up a Top 50. Anyway, read, enjoy, bitch and moan, or just have a beer and stroke your collective beards. Merry fucking Christmas, folks!!
