News: Readers and listeners vote for their favourite albums and live acts – Best of 2015

Thunder

Every year the reviewers at Get Ready to ROCK! choose their Top Albums and Live Acts.  Their selection covers a range of genres from rock to blues and progressive and reflects the musical spread of the well-respected website.

The reviewers voted Thunder and ‘Wonder Days’ their Top Album, with southern rock revivalists Blackberry Smoke close runners-up with ‘Holding All The Roses’.

Soulful rockers Vintage Trouble topped the live act poll closely followed by The Tubes who celebrated the 30th anniversary of their debut album with a UK tour in the summer.

From 7 December, readers and listeners can vote for their favourites (including any artist or album not featured in the reviewer list) and enter a prize draw to win a selection of 2015 albums.

The ‘Best of 2015′ has been a regular end-of-year feature since 2003 and the various choices and comments build into a useful reference library for any particular year.

Throughout December, Get Ready to ROCK! Radio will be featuring ‘Best of’ selections throughout their playlists and on 27 December a two-hour show will cover the reviewer, reader and listener choices.
