Top 100 Albums of 2015: Who Didn't Make the Cut

#1-25 #26-50 #51-100
Don't let the title mislead you! While none of these albums made my top 100, to make it this far, I listened to each of the following records at least twice (and often three or four times) before deciding that they just didn't quite cut it for the top 100. They're still very good albums (if they weren't, they wouldn't have made the list at all as they would have ended up like most of what I listen to: one listen through or even just a couple of tracks before giving up).
