Albums I Wouldn't Mind Having

Well, I'm almost *certain* this list is self-explanatory. Feedback, as always, is most welcome.
The Roundhouse Tapes

Though I've never really been a fan of live albums, per se, this one sounds intriguing (and not just because Opeth is a fetish of mind and I would fistfight a bear in front of its mama for the chance to hear "Demon of the Fall" live). Improvisation seems to make up the bulk of these discs, which is truly admirable in a band.
2 Erase the Grey
27 Days

From what I've read, this short-lived band's first and last EP is a bittersweet testament to their high-quality songwriting and musicianship as a whole.
3Haste the Day
Pressure the Hinges

Being a big fan of "Burning Bridges" and "When Everything Falls," coupled with hearing that this release takes the band in a more progressive direction, makes "Pressure the Hinges" worth looking into in my book.
4Bear McCreary
Battlestar Galactica - Season One

As if being an avid watcher of the show itself doesn't impress the ladies enough, I'm also a really big fan of the music of Battlestar Galactica. Incidentally, I have yet to buy the soundtrack for Season One, despite my relentless, borderline-unhealthy infatuation with those of Seasons Two and Three (especially "Something Dark Is Coming" and "Prelude to War" from the former; sheer bliss, I tell you).
5The Mars Volta
The Bedlam in Goliath

I'm well aware that the popular thing to do nowadays is hate these guys, especially after their subjectively "lackluster" outing "Amputechture" (which I, for one, really enjoyed), but I still look forward to this disc greatly.
6 Rosetta / Balboa
Project Mercury

If their two full-length CDs (or up to four, depending on one's perspective on "The Galilean Satellites," really) are any indication, Rosetta is virtually incapable of releasing a bad album. And though I've heard little of Balboa, any band so close in style and focus to Rosetta warrants my immediate attention.
7Porcupine Tree
Nil Recurring

Gauging it by the reviews thus far, the companion piece to "Fear of a Blank Planet" seems to outmatch its already superb sister album. I, for one, am excited.

I was torn between whether to put this or "The Blue" on here, but I figured I should start with the earlier of the band's two widely-available (relatively speaking, of course) CDs.
9Devil Sold His Soul
Darkness Prevails EP

Possibly one of the most interesting, complex, and unjustly overlooked bands out there today, Devil Sold His Soul is quickly becoming a new favorite of mine; as with Novembre, I figure it's only appropriate that I check out the earliest semi-readily-available release first.

A relative oldie, but, from the reviews I've seen, a powerful release with a staying power that gives it all the relevance it needs. Oh, and top notch musicianship to boot.
11Damien Rice
Live From The Union Chapel

Simply put, I adore "O," "B-Sides," and "9," so this is only a natural progression for my ever-increasing fanboyism for Mr. Rice.
