I tried to like more but I just don't like it was much as others it seems. It's still a very impressive album though.
33The Wonder Years
The Greatest Generation
32u-Ziq
Chewed Corners


Boards of Canada emulation. Still a great album.
31Caladan Brood
Echoes of Battle
30Palms
Palms


Chino and member of Isis is a match made in heaven. Should probably have this higher up.
29Paysage d'Hiver
Das Tor
28Shai Hulud
Reach Beyond the Sun
27James Blake
Overgrown


Major improvement over the last one.
26The Dear Hunter
Migrant


The highs are really high and the lows are pretty low.
25Arcade Fire
Reflektor


Not what I was expecting and perhaps a little too long, but there's still some gems here and I always appreciate an artist trying new things.
24How to Destroy Angels
Welcome Oblivion
23Queens of the Stone Age
...Like Clockwork


I wanted to like this more but it just wasn't meant to be. Still a great rock album though.
22Sigur Ros
Kveikur


They brought back the dark sound of ( ) while not sounding repetitive.
21Nosound
Afterthoughts
20Pearl Jam
Lightning Bolt


Their best since Yield. Sirens is a beautiful song.
19Protest the Hero
Volition


Much better than their last one.
18Mechina
Empyrean


Spacey/atmospheric metal is a wonderful thing.
17Dethklok
The Doomstar Requiem


I thought it was really good. http://i2.kym- cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/419/124/515.jpg
16Cult of Luna
Vertikal


Post-metal done by guys who know how to do it best.
15The National
Trouble Will Find Me


Grew off me a bit as the year went on but it's still a solid release. This is one of those albums that has nothing really wrong with it but suffers from being stacked against a...well...stacked discography
14The Dillinger Escape Plan
One of Us Is the Killer


Another chaotic release from these veterans. Good stuff.
13Coheed and Cambria
The Afterman: Descension


Not as good as Ascension, but this still offers all that I love about Coheed. Number City was one of my favorite songs of the year.
12Kayo Dot
Hubardo


I'm not going to lie, I've only been able to get through the whole album a handful of times, but after each listen it left me completely floored. It's an exhausting listen though that doesn't make me want to pick up that often so that's why it's only at 12.
11Gris
A lame Enflammee, lame Constellee


Black Metal+Post-Rock+Folk=Creamy Goodness
10The Ocean
Pelagial


Amazing post-metal with a pretty cool concept. Nowhere near Precambrian but it's still and incredible listening experience. The instrumental version may actually be better.
9Streetlight Manifesto
The Hands That Thieve


When not comparing it to their past work, THTT is a fun romping ska album that doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately with a band as renowned as Streetlight Manifesto the comparisons are going to come. So in a way it's a slight disappointment because of the lofty expectations but it's still a hell of a fun album and contains all the things we love about this band.
8Ulcerate
Vermis


Crushing, sludgy, and heavy as all hell. This was my first encounter with Ulcerate and I"m definitely a fan now.
7Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels


Best hip-hop of the year. I hope these guys collaborate a lot more in the future.
6My Bloody Valentine
m b v


Shoegaze legends return with an album they started back in the 90's and show that they still are the masters. It's not going to be giving Loveless a run for it's money but it's still one of the better shoegaze albums I've heard in years.
5Nine Inch Nails
Hesitation Marks


Wasn't expecting to like this nearly as much as I did. After the release of How to Destroy Angels earlier in the year, and enjoying it a lot, I figured Reznor would be tapped out for a while but boy was I wrong. Hesitation Marks, I think, is the strongest NIN album since fragile. We all know the Reznor sound by now and it's ever prevalent here, but there's still new stuff he's trying out and for the most part and it works.
4Darkthrone
The Underground Resistance


I hadn't listened to much Darkthrone since their classic output in the 90's so giving this a listen was quite a surprise. There's still the grimy black metal production they are known for, but the music contains elements of speed, thrash, and classic heavy metal. Idk if it's supposed to be a homage to their early influences or if it's supposed to be a parody of heavy metal, but all I do know is Darkthrone makes the kind of music they want on their own terms and what they made here was a headbanging good time.
3Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest


Tomorrow's Harvest will inevitably be compared to their earlier work and the general consensus is that it isn't as good which may be true, but taken by itself, Tomorrow's Harvest was one of the strongest releases of the year. Their signature sound is ever present but there's something just a little different about it that doesn't make it feel like you're listening to their earlier releases and that keeps it fresh in my mind.
2Laura Stevenson
Wheel


When I first heard Sit and Resist I didn't think much of it but Laura has grown on me immensely over the last couple years and it has culminated with Wheel being ranked so highly here. Wheel, I believe, shows how her songwriting has matured and that's probably why I enjoy it so much. Excellent songwriting, combined with her cute vocals, makes for a catchy and surprisingly heartwarming album that I will be listening to for years to come.
1Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused to Sing


Wilson has taken elements of those classic 70's prog bands (mainly King Crimson) and crafted the best album of the year in my opnion. The thing that makes this remarkable is that it sounds like a true band playing together despite it being a solo outing. Every member of the band has is incredibly talented and gets time to showcase their skills. I didn't think he'd be able to top Grace for Drowning, and I definitely didn't think he would do it so quickly, but he has and it has provided the most exciting listening experience of the year for me.
