We’ll move on to the countdown soon, but in the interest of completeness, let’s name some albums that just missed making the cut, but are no less worthy for having failed to grace the top 15.

The follow records have been recommended by one of the members of our esteemed panel. While these records didn’t earn Honorable Mention trophies, I trust the taste of our panel and I advise you to do the same. Got a hole in your musical soul? These albums may be able to mend it.
