Best of 2015...
⇒ Lana Del Rey Honeymoon

While my list is basically unordered, I have to come down on my favorite album of the year. Spotify claims I spun Del Rey's latest 117 times, which doesn't include all the times I listened to it on CD in my car or on my turntable, but it does prove Honeymoon is undeniably may favorite album this year. I've given up trying to explain why I love Del Rey's music so much, or trying to win people over for her. Is it how each song is a short story? Is it the mood and atmosphere she immediately creates in a 15-second intro? Is it her style and Lynchian arrangements? Yes, it's all of that and more. Take it or leave it, but I can't get enough.
