Phew. What a year it's been for music. From exciting debuts to hugely-anticipated follow-ups and surprise releases, 2015 has been a blockbuster year for album releases. It was so good, in fact, that we had no choice but to extend our usual top 50 list to our top 55.
Including the likes of Grimes, Kendrick Lamar, Laura Marling, Sleater-Kinney, Muse, Joanna Newsom, Everything Everything and many more, here - ranked in order of greatness - are the year's best albums.
