What, if any, musical releases were you less than thrilled with?  For me, I was extremely underwhelmed by the Cromwell/Carlson disc.  Musically it just wasn't what I would want from Les.

Also, the new Apologetix album "You Can't Say Euphrates Without The 80s" did nothing for me.  I didn't like a lot of the songs they covered and didn't know some of the originals either.  That makes for a boring parody album.

Agreed, I feel they could have done so much more with the album.

I have to say that I pretty much had no disappointments this year.  Thanks to Spotify (or Bandcamp) I listened to nearly everything I thought I wanted before I bought it.  I certainly helped me skip a few albums that I would have ended up not really enjoying.  
The only one I got that I wish I hadn't was Signum Regis "Through the Storm" EP.  Don't get me wrong it was very well done, it's just a genre that I really don't dig anymore, I'm not sure why I got it.

My biggest musical letdown of 2015 was not getting the Joshua's Creed album released.  Hopefully come April/May it will be ready.

GX Project. I thought it was terrible and wanted to like it so bad. I thought the production was terrible on it. Very highly compressed and not near as good as the first 2. I would have to agree with Cromwell/Carlsen. Thankfully I ended up not ordering it after hearing some samples.

I didn't even know the Cromwell/Carlsen was out.  I was pretty pleased with everything I was looking forward to, so I guess my biggest letdown was Worldview.  Not that I dislike the album in any way, I was just hoping for a little harder sound with more of George's leads.

Having had a taste of that one song I'm really looking forward to hearing the whole album.

Thanks!  Now that the holidays are over we'll see about getting the vocals done.

For me the new Stryper album was a bit of a letdown...

I know most people love the new Stryper album, but can someone tell me why? Don't get me wrong. I think it's a strong album, but to me it feels a bit like a marketing machine. They've listened well to what the fans want and given that on both Fallen and No More Hell To Pay. Somehow i miss a bit of creativity. That's what i loved on Against The Law. It was bit out of the box.

In more modern time, out of the box will get you another "Reborn".  lol!

I fully understand.  I intended to finish my blues album but didn't.  I have all the vocals done.  I just need to complete drum tracks on one song, leads, and then mixdown/mastering.

I thought it was pretty doggone good!  I like it better than "Sinner" but not as much as "Bite Stick".

Yeah, Reborn, speaking of letdowns... Even though there are a few good songs on Reborn, overall it wasn't a good album. Bad mix, The bass and drums are dominating. to many low-tones (no clue if that's how you say it in English). The mix and mastering on both Fallen and  No More Hell To Pay are superb. It's just not what i want to hear in a Stryper album. I guess i'm not the typical Stryper fan.

No, I guess not. I find the last two Stryper lp's to be very creative, and very well done in terms of songwriting and artistic value...

Better production, but this is obviously a light hearted spoof band, but for me, the humor has worn off...
