It's been a pretty good year for music.
Turn This Island Earth
A 12 minute symphonic prog masterpiece from the former Genesis guitarist.
I Feel the Dark
Haters don't know how to prog.
Awesome stoner rock song.
Epic opener from the brilliant Wars of Roses album.
Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa
Great mix of soul and blues.
Get What's Coming
From thier self titled EP released earlier this year, rocks just as hard as anything on Pressure and Time.
Awesome song that goes through multiple mood changes and features some of Hackett's most poweful guitar playing.
The Civil Wars
Excellent folk track from the duo's full length debut.
Black Lung Heartache
Standout track from the excellent Dust Bowl album on which Joe proves once again that he is the king of modern blues.
Brilliant instrumental symphonic prog.
Haters don't know how to prog 
8 minutes of epic soundscapes accompanied by excellent female vocals.
Stunning version of the beautiful instrumental originally featured on his debut album, Peace Machine.
The Black Keys
Catchy guitar-driven blues rock.
One of the standout tracks from the blues rock band's excellent Pressure and Time album.
Steal Your Heart Away
Awesome opening track from what is arguably Whitesnake's best album since the 80's. Doug Aldrich puts in a killer guitar performance.
17 Girls in a Row
This really doesn't need a decription; it's called 17 Girls in a Row and it's by Steel Panther, of course it rules.
The best of the three new tracks featured on the bands new live album, Mirrorball. They opened with this when I saw them live earlier this month.
Great track from the retro rockers.
Days of Heroes (live)
A great new song that would have been featured on Moore's next sudio album had he not passed away earlier this year. R.I.P.
A Gaze At The Stars
Over 10 minutes of epic doom metal.
Black Country Commnuion
Epic closing track from the supergroup's second album.
Song rules. Band features Clutch guitarist Tim Sult.
Keep You Close
Title track and one of the highlights from the experimental alt rock band's new album.

12 fuck yes, also 13, 25
Oh and happy new year Sputnik.
Nice list JT.
I need to check "Turn This Island Earth" asap.
Thanks Notrap. Yeah you do, it's awesome.
Good list. Mad props for Lionize, Gentlemans Pistols and Lo-Pan.
1 = fuck yeah. Props for 11.
1, 2, 4, 8, 11, 12, 20 and 25 are all ace. I'm gonna check out the rest.
I can definitely see you digging 10, 13 and 23, Jethro. 7 and 16 too if you're in the mood to rawk.
Damn right man. Awesome stuff thanks!
Including Opeth and Ulver will certainly get you my stamp of approval. 22 is awesome as well.
Angel check out 1 if you haven't heard it already.
I heard a couple songs from that album and wasn't too impressed.
How dare you...
Steve Hackett cant do wrong. So much gems hidden into each release. Here's another 'Genesis maniac' artist to explore;
Also The Watch must be considered.
That video's great.
P/ Kevin was chosen by Genesis to replace Collins as their new singer in 1996. He never heard of that good news. He accidentally died before he could know it.
That sucks, he would have been an excellent replacement.
