|Pistol's AOTY 2005-2016|
Bored at work, music this year has been kinda lacking for me and it makes me think back to past years where there just seemed to be more "massive" or "defining" albums to go around. It's probably me just getting old and stuck in my ways musically but anyways wanted to see all my past AOTYs altogether and get somewhat horny staring at them. Rec me anything from 2017 you think is decent.
 This album went beyond just a listening experience. It actually changed my outlook on life at a time when I was going through some (now admittedly juvenile) early 20's angst and bitterness.

Somewhere Along the Highway
 Essential post-metal.
 The first album I ever 5'd and the first time I could genuinely say I enjoyed every song on an album.
|9||Birds Of Tokyo|
 Not as good a band as Karnivool overall, but still better than anything they ever did.
 Astonishingly memorable end to a hell of a career.
 This year was hard to pick for, but this album crushes. (Runner-up: Kanye West - MBDTF)
 Another hard year to pick for....so many good albums. This one is my favourite of the decade so far though. (Runners-up: Fair to Midland - Arrows & Anchors, Leprous - Bilateral)
All We Love We Leave Behind
 Even old dogs can still deliver a beatdown of epic proportions.
 Probably the wackiest and most intriguing album I've ever listened to. Took a while to appreciate but this album hit me at a time when I needed it.

Run the Jewels 2
 I mean all their albums thus far have been fire, but this one....this one just had it all.
 I'm as surprised as you to see this here. What can I say, the band absolutely tears it up on this and it is so much fucking fun.
 Didn't think post-metal in this day and age could be so goddamn glorious anymore.
