Episode 7- Top 5 Albums of 2015

Needing that sloppy like a Chevy in quicksand, it's Strictly Butter! On this special year-end episode, we count down our individual Top Five albums of 2015. This includes diving in deep on Kendrick Lamar (spoiler alert,) bringing up the Sega Dreamcast game "Seaman" and several other entertaining tangents. This is a long one (as any worthwhile year-end recap should be,) so maybe go grab the podcast snack of your choice now, and then proceed right to enjoying! Questions? Comments? Complaints? Got your own Top Five list that you think puts ours to shame? Want to tell us that you think we're all unsophisticated idiots for not including your favorite album? By all means, please get in touch.
