Stuff I've heard recently.
1Sound City Players
Sound City: Real to Reel

Really enjoyable. Nice to hear all these artists on one compilation.
2Norma Jean

Though I may not agree with their views, this is still a very competent metalcore album. Up there with Underoath's best.
3Michael Jackson

There's a reason this is the best-selling album of all time.
Focus on the Center

Eh, well-made, just sounds like they're ripping off Coheed too much.
5Of Mice & Men
Restoring Force

First major disappointment of the year. Was excited after hearing the bonus tracks off The Flood reissue, then they manage to make their first truly average album.
6Within Temptation

"And We Run" with Xzibit is the only noteworthy track here, otherwise pretty standard symphonic metal. Worse production than the last album doesn't help.
7Steven Price

Amazing score to an amazing film.
8Born of Osiris
The Discovery

Great technicality, mix of electronica is nice, one of the better deathcore albums out there.
9Against Me!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues

Raw, honest lyrics and a traditional punk sound lend authenticity to the proceedings.
10Childish Gambino
Because the Internet

The album Yeezus should've been.
The Mountain

New prog classic? I think so.
12Nine Inch Nails
Further Down the Spiral [UK]

One of my favorite remix albums.
Tales from Topographic Oceans

The nadir of prog or a misunderstood classic? I'll go with the latter.
14Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here

Mmm yeah gimme somma that proggy goodness. Floyd/5
15Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain

Competently made, just sounds like everything else in post-hardcore.
