Baadasssss’ Top 10 Albums Of 2015

The Simpsons - Albums of 2015

I’ve been writing for Geeks of Doom since April 2008. In that time I have written about the occasional soundtrack release, but never before in my time or anywhere else have I attempted to write a list of the best new music I heard over the course of a year. Please bear with me, dear readers as I get into my picks for my Top 10 Albums of 2015.

Two years before I joined the Geeks writing staff, I was employed by my local Tower Records and Video. From the summer of 1999 to just a few days shy of Christmas 2006 when the nationwide chain shut down forever, I worked full time at Tower and loved almost every minute of my time there. Each day I was exposed to music from countless genres, and having that job deepened my appreciation of music I either dabbled in previously or was never exposed to at all. I was listening to a lot more rap, jazz, opera, bluegrass, gospel, and indie rock than ever before and developing a deeply emotional and intellectual appreciation for how each album was lovingly crafted and the unique history behind every song.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Bob Dylan ‘Tempest’

Tempest

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 Album Deals, Bob Dylan‘s latest musical masterwork Tempest, released only a few months ago, is currently on sale for only $5. You can check out a track listing here below.

I have written in the past about why I consider Bob Dylan to be my favorite musician of all time. At the age of 71, he continues to experiment with and mold his signature blend of troubadour folk and rebellious rock into a sound practically unique among the music being produced today, making every album he releases a cause for celebration. Tempest, released on September 11 of last year (oddly enough Dylan’s 2001 album Love and Theft was also released on September 11 of that year), is one of his finest recordings since 1997’s Time Out of Mind, one of the high watermarks of his music career and possibly the greatest album of the 1990s. Since Time, Dylan has settled into a comfortable groove of writing and performing songs written in the traditional of the finest musical storytellers. The best tunes on these albums are mini-epics of love, despair, honesty, and hope.

Peter Jackson's West Memphis Three Documentary

West of Memphis: Voices for Justice, a soundtrack album for the film West of Memphis was released today on CD and MP3 and features an all-star line-up of musicians and longtime supporters of the West Memphis Three. West of Memphis, which was given a limited theatrical release last month, is the Peter Jackson-produced documentary about the arrest and 1994 murder conviction of then-teenagers Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols, and Jason Baldwin – known as the “West Memphis Three” – and how forensic evidence led to their release from prison after more than 18 years.

A few days ago, we posted about the first single off the album, a cover of the David Bowie classic “The Jean Genie” performed by Camp Freddy, a cover band featuring guitarist Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses). Now, 14 tracks off the album, which features acts like Eddie Vedder, Marilyn Manson, Bob Dylan, and Patti Smith, as well as Johnny Depp (see Track #5 by Tonto’s Giant Nuts featuring Depp), is streaming online for FREE.

If I was on a merry-go-round that was rigged with a bomb and the only way I could save the lives of myself and all those precocious orphans who wanted to experience a little joy before returning to their Dickensian existence was to name my all-time favorite musician, I would wait until the digital counter on the bomb was down to two seconds and say, “Duh. Bob Dylan!”
