Top 20 Albums of 2015

Posted by Neil Wilson


With the end of the year comes the end of year lists, and no list is more hotly contested than the best album of the year.  At Scottish Fiction our Top 20 countdown has been a tough one to settle on, with at least 60 albums in the frame.  However we’ve hummed and hawed and now proudly present our Top 20 Scottish Albums of 2015.

Featuring some heavyweights such as Belle & Sebastian and Admiral Fallow, some critically acclaimed albums such as C Duncan and Young Fathers, and some debut releases from Prehistoric Friends and Vasa, the full countdown is presented in this show and is all killer, no filler.  You can see the full countdown below, and enjoy a track from each album in our latest radio show above.
