This is going to change 3028342349 times before I have to publish my finalized list in December, but this is what I've got so far.

I'm currently expanding my lol soundoff of this album. SEAN MALONE SEAN MALONE SEAN MALONE (Sean Reinert) SEAN MALONE SEAN MALONE SEAN MALONE
2Butch Walker
Sycamore Meadows


Triumphant pop record that can't be passed up. "The Weight of Her" and "Here Comes the..." are amazing cuts, as are "Vessels" and "ATL."

See: lol sound-off (or review).
4The Loved Ones [US]

Pretend someone took the Jaws of Life to your balls, squeezed, and then smashed them with a sledgehammer.
6Equilibrium
Sagas


See: lol soundoff. Epic stuff.
7 pg. lost
It's Not Me, It's You!

8Gates of Winter
Lux Aeterna


Equilibrium passed these guys by just a bit, but come on, any Nuclear Blast band with that kind of funding will pass up an independent artist without an essentially-unlimited bankroll. Their bassist is a monster.
9Oceans of Sadness
The Arrogance of Ignorance


Underrated artist and album.
10Anberlin
New Surrender

11The Roots
Rising Down


Another record that has had surprising longevity with me throughout the year.
12Cog
Sharing Space


---
13In Flames
A Sense of Purpose


Album is awesome; forget the naysayers. Yes, that lyric from "Disconnected" is absolutely awful (the "I feel like shit, but at least I feel something" line), but stuff like "The Mirror's Truth," "Move Through Me," "Eraser," and "March to the Shore" is awesome.
14Jardin de la Croix
Pomeroy

The duo's best effort to date deserves some positive recognition.

19The Butterfly Effect
Final Conversation of Kings

20Heaven Shall Burn
Iconoclast (Part I:The Final Resistance)


The segue from "Awoken" to "Endzeit" is phenomenal. It's the little things that get me.
21TV on the Radio
Dear Science


This will more than likely go up my list.
22The Flashbulb
Soundtrack to a Vacant Life

23Less Than Jake
GNV FLA


A real solid return-to-form.
