Guest Lists: Dan Hegarty’s 10 best albums of 2015

In the second of our guest reviews of  the best albums of 2015, 2FM DJ Dan Hegarty picks the 10 records  (in no particular order) that did it for him over the last 12 months. Dan broadcasts ‘The Alternative’ on 2 FM from Monday – Thursday at 1am. He just recently launched a superb book: ‘Buried Treasure: Overlooked, Forgotten and Uncrowned Classic Albums’ in which a cross section of musicians, artists, producers and actors choose some of the albums that mean a lot to them. A ‘must have’ Christmas stocking filler for all music fans.
