The 15 Albums You Need To Hear in 2015

Album sales this year were dominated by the male solo artist, with Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Paolo Nutini claiming three out of the top four spots. But there was so much more going on beneath the surface, as Royal Blood brought rock storming back into the charts, Jungle brought back the groove and Future Islands exploded from nowhere after a mesmerising TV performance.

We did well on the whole with our predictions last year, although we're still waiting on a good few of them to deliver - don't rush or anything people - but here's our 15 albums to look forward to in 2015; it should be a vintage year.
