FEATURE: 50 albums that turn 10 in 2016!

At the moment, it’s looking like 2016 is going to be a great year in terms of new albums, with a handful of huge bangers already out there and many more undoubted hits confirmed to be hitting out ears in the next few months. It’s also important to look back every so often, and it just turns out that a decade ago in 2006 was a great year for albums too.

Of course there are hundreds, but we filtered together 50 great albums that turn 10-years-old this year to remember those modern classics, accompanied with streams to bring ourselves a massive hit of euphoric nostalgia.

NOTE: These albums may bring intense levels and high frequencies of smiles, jumping, involuntary head nodding/banging and limb movements, and uncontrollable happiness.

TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2015!

A whole year of music has been hitting our inboxes, our ears, and, in some cases, even our hearts. Literally hundreds of albums are released week after week, and though in the whole scheme of things we only got a small snapshot of everything that has been put out, we get a big chunk of it from across the UK, Europe, America and beyond.

However, we’ve pulled in all of our thoughts, opinions, loves and hates, and managed to bring in what we feel have been the best 10 albums and best 5 EPs throughout the whole of the year, and ones that (if you haven’t already) you should be getting shoved down your ears on a regular basis, and as soon as possible too.

ALBUM: Fightstar – Behind The Devil’s Back


Release Date: October 16th 2015
Label: Unsigned


Remember way back in 2005, when Charlie Simpson decided to leave pop rock poster boy trio Busted to focus full-time on Fightstar? He faced a huge backlash from both communities; the Busted fans for abandoning the group and leading to their demise, and large members of the rock community for his frowned upon past. Following a handful of albums and several years of grafting on the road, Simpson and co. gradually got more and more accepted into their alt rock/post-hardcore home, both by fans and peers.
