Our Best Albums Of 2015 looks back at a year in which classic rockers seemed to take the year off with some exceptions. 2015 did see releases from such legends as Keith Richards who delivered his first solo album in twenty three years. Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys fame continued to release new music to the joy of Beach Boys fans. Chris Cornell released the best solo album of his career. James Taylor was back with another great one. David Gilmour returned with another spectacular rock album to keep his Pink Floyd fans happy. Great modern day female blues rockers Beth Hart and Samantha Fish issued killer albums. Perhaps one of the greatest rock records of the year though was the release of Iron Maiden’s The Book Of Souls.
