This page lists the top albums of 2015 in the source charts. The way that the various charts are combined to reach this final list is described in the site generation page. A list of biggest hit songs of 2015 can be found here.

The companion site chart2000.com provides an alternative (and clearly better) set of charts of the top songs and albums of 2015. The data gathered at this site focuses on music from 2000 and before. The coverage for 2000-2009 is OK but after 2009 the number of charts included drops dramatically. The way year end summary charts are generated externally means that last year's data is not yet available, so the results here are not to be trusted.
