Mammal’s Best of 2015 – Part 3/10
** Sorry I’m posting later than usual today. My ADSL service provider enjoyed an area-wide network error today. I shared in the fun.
Making lists of favourite albums in various main categories can lead to a few dilemmas. Modern music outside the mainstream increasingly ignores the boundaries and tags of recognised genres. My psychedelic/space rock selection today is a case in point. It could equally well have been a metal selection in the lesser-known sub-genre of space metal. Either way, it would have been on one of my lists, so I don’t suppose it matters.
It’s going to happen again before I finish posting all my Best Ofs. And, no, it doesn’t matter, does it? All that matters is the music. I hope you find something you love in today’s pick.
