Yeah
40Amarionette
Amarionette


The last three songs on the album feel like bonus tracks to me, but the first seven are spectacular post-hardcore with a vocalist who's more than just a Claudio Sanchez impersonator. Best track: When Under Pressure Explode
39Protest the Hero
Volition


Probably didn't spin any album as much as this one...can't help but enjoy the hell out of this. Best track: Mist
38So Hideous
Last Poem/First Light


It's actually quite lovely. Best track: My Light
37Jon Hopkins
Immunity


The popular electronic pick. Best track: Immunity
36Flat Earth Society

A bit of a lopsided listen as a whole, but each individual track works quite well. Best track: Experiments in the Revival of Organisms
35Entropia (PL)
Vesper


SMsBMAOTY (Surprise Metrosexual Black Metal Album of the Year) Best track: Pascal
34Eleventh He Reaches London
Banhus


They're pretty much just an aggressive folk band after stripping away the hardcore/metal elements from their past few albums, but the intensity is still very much present. Best track: Body Unbind
33Dean Blunt
The Redeemer


Weird existential pop. Best track: Demon
32Forest Swords
Engravings


Trip-Hop. Best track: Thor's Stone
31The Black Heart Rebellion
Har Nevo

What Genesis would sound like today if Phil Collins didn't take over. Best track: East Coast Racer
26Leprous
Coal


It's not as wholly eclectic as their last two releases, but shit can their vocalist sing. Best track: The Valley
25Sigur Ros
Kveikur


Kveikurtak. Best track: Isjaki
24Thundercat
Apocalypse


Sounds like an anachronism from both the 1960's and the 2060's...ecstasy. Best Track: Heartbreaks + Setbacks
23Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels


Jesus do El-P and Killer Mike know how to arrange and craft a hip-hop album. Best track: Sea Legs
22Polyenso
One Big Particular Loop


These guys reinvented themselves from a run of the mill post-hardcore band to the best Radiohead cover band ever. Best track: Falling in Rain
21Nine Inch Nails
Hesitation Marks


I've never even really liked what are supposed to be Trent's best albums but this album is really effective marriage of electronic/industrial and gothic pop and it's much easier to stomach than his FUCK THE WORLD albums. Best track: All Time Low
20The National
Trouble Will Find Me


Used to be utterly bored by these guys but I think aging has caught up to me and made me more boring so now I enjoy them. Best track: I Need My Girl
19Tim Hecker

17 HRVRD
From the Bird's Cage


Fuck vowels. Best track: Cardboard Houses
16Gorguts
Colored Sands


Manages to separate itself from other crazy technical metal albums due to its understanding of musical form and structure. Best track: Colored Sands
15Jamie Lenman
Muscle Memory


The hardcore cd is a bit overwhelming, but as usual Jamie manages to write intelligent songs with charming/sardonic lyrics. Best track on hardcore cd: No News is Good News / Best track on acoustic cd: Little Lives

Teethed Glory and Injury


I'm so glad they cut the bullshit. Best track: Reflection Pulse Remains

Very thoughtful songwriting here; a bit of a cumbersome underlying theme but the music complements and enhances the story quite well. Best Track: Fear of Humanity or Defense Highway
1Kayo Dot
Hubardo


Duh. Best Track: Passing the River
