Having had time to digest the Prog magazine writers list I can announce for the second year running my closest match was with deputy editor Hannah May Kilroy...

An impressive four matches included Chelsea Wolfe, Enslaved and Nordic Giants with much kudos for choosing Kontinuum as her number one album of the year !

And so we come to my top 10 albums of 2015 (my 4th such list !).... As ever in alphabetical orders the winners were:

Blackberry Smoke - Holding all the Roses
Gwenno - Y Dydd Olaf
Kontinuum - Kyrr
Myrkur - M
Nordic Giants - A Seance of Dark Delusions
Nerina Pallot - The Sound and the Fury
Public Service Broadcasting - The Race for Space
Sexwitch - Sexwitch
Swallow the Sun - Songs From the North
Chelsea Wolfe - Abyss

However for the first time I will rate one of these of the best and it was no contest. Take a bow Public Service Broadcasting for a quite stunning album
