Best Albums Of 2012

I know it's a little late for this, but better late than never, I guess. So, here's my top 18 (wtf?) list rof albums from that glorious year that was 2012. Welcome, and feel free to comment, and stuff.
1Deftones
Koi No Yokan


Simple enough, this was their most expansive album since White Pony (I personally liked Koi No Yokan a little more), it grows on me with each listen, that's how fucking great this album is, nuff said.
2Between The Buried And Me
The Parallax II: Future Sequence


I need no reason, it's BTBAM!
3Rush
Clockwork Angels


When a band that's been around for over (or nearly, not a 100% sure) forty years can make a record that has them still sounding fresh and on the top of their game, you know that their album is going to end at least on your top 10 list.
4Soundgarden
King Animal


Soundgarden is back, and they are firing all the cylinders with their newest effort, I loved the more "somber" songwriting this time, and they sound as tight as bands can get this days.
5Muse
The 2nd Law


It's not my favorite Muse album, but I enjoyed the fuck out of this one, I loved the diversity, and their willing to not do the same album twice, lots of good tunes. Standouts like Supremacy, Panic Station, Animals and Madness could really become some of their classics someday.
6Converge
All We Love We Leave Behind


I can just say that I wasn't shocked when I heard this album and realized that it was amazing.
7 Gojira
L'Enfant Sauvage


Progressive metal masters return with their best work to date, bringing an album full of great tunes, tight sound and songwriting, and the list could go on.
8Coheed and Cambria
The Afterman: Ascension


This album wasn't a game changer (but it ceirtanly wasn't the so-so effort named Year Of The Black Rainbow), but it had lots of great tunes, and has one of my all time favorite Coheed songs (Key Entity Extraction I: Domino The Destitute).
9Yellowcard
Southern Air


Well, not too many albums get me emotional when I hear them, but this one was a punch in the gut, the lyrics are amazing, the music and tunes are catchy and greatly crafted, and I smiled like a kid on christmas when I heard "Always Summer", well done, Yellowcard, well done.
10Architects
Daybreaker


Let's just say that this album was a back to form for Architects, many fans know what I mean.
11 Periphery
Periphery II: This Time It's Personal


Well, I love this band, what else can I say?
12Linkin Park
Living Things


They brought back some of the elements that long time fans love, and messed with them a bit combining them with their new sound, and made a pretty tight album.
13Billy Talent
Dead Silence


I can definitely say that this band is on the top of their game with this album, it really doesn't offer anything new, but it's a punk-pop album as tight as you get this days, you can't ask for anything else.
14Stone Sour
House Of Gold And Bones - Part 1


Great music, great lyrics, tight production, all in one neat little product, all in all great effort from this hard rock masters (I can call them like that after this excellent record).
15blink-182
Dogs Eating Dogs


This is one great little EP with some great tracks, and a newly re-aquired chemistry between the members of the band.
16The Secret
Agnus Dei


Well, this album kicked my nutsack (in a good way).
17Meshuggah
Koloss


Another album that while more somber and slower, managed to kick my nutsack, as well, also, we are talking about Meshuggah, for fuck's sake!
18Glass Cloud
The Royal Thousand


Nothing new, but all in all a great debut with great tracks and great guitar playing, especially.
