It's a bit premature (provided there is some unexpected surprise December releases haha).

Actually, Show of Hands' new album hasn't come out yet, but I won't hear it until 2016 anyway because its only sold at the band's concerts for the end of this year.

And no, I never did hear Sufjan fucking Stevens even though I know I should.

1. Blur - The Magic Whip
2. Gaz Coombes - Matador
3. Tame Impala - Currents
4. FFS - FFS
5. The Orb - Moonbuilding 2703 AD
6. The Chemical Brothers - Born in the Echoes
7. The Pop Group - Citizen Zombie
8. Leftfield - Alternative Light Source
9. Public Image Ltd - What the World Needs Now
10. The Selecter - Subculture

(+ Bonus 10)
11. Bjork - Vulcnicular
12. Squeeze - Cradle to the Grave
13. Wire - Wire
14. 8:58 - 8:58
15. Trickfinger - Trickfinger
16. Pop Will Eat Itself - Anti Nasty League
17. New Order - Music Complete
18. Wilco - Star Wars
19. Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.
20. Peatbog Faeries - Blackhouse

Too early to decide on my top 15, but it'd probably look like this:

Tier 1: Titus Andronicus, Kendrick Lamar, Deafheaven, Courtney Barnett, Father John Misty.
Tier 2: Blur, Deerhunter, Sufjan, Eskimeaux, Protomartyr, Sleater-Kinney, Viet Cong, Beach House's Thank You Lucky Stars, The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die.

CHVRCHES and Tame Impala's latest releases are appaling.

TMW #1 best album westway's opinion doesn't count

I also liked Dan Deacon's 'Gliss Riffer' and TMBG's 'Glean'.
Other than that I'm way behind on new music as always.
