2014 saw Taylor Swift sell millions of albums, and U2 force their music upon us all. But what will be the biggest 2015 CD releases? And what are the most anticipated upcoming records and LPs? All-time greats such as Bob Dylan and Fleetwood Mac have already announced 2015 album releases, as have current pop favorites Rita Ora and Demi Lovato. We can also expect to see new albums from some of the indie/alternative landscape's most respected artists, from Björk, to The Decemberists, and Belle & Sebastian

As always, release dates and album details are subject to change. A few of these records may even be pipe dreams (50 Cent's Street King Immortal has already been rescheduled countless times, and it's never easy getting Guns N' Roses to make good on their promises). So who will come through next year? Which artists will live up to the hype? And will any veterans reclaim their former glory? Will they join the ranks in music history among the other best albums?

Only time will tell, but there's no better way to prep for 2015 than by casting your votes for the new music albums you're most excited to hear. But one thing is for sure, as far as best albums 2015 is shaping up to be a good year.
