I'm Also Doing It (2010, Top 15)

Yeah, it's about that time of year when you start to round up the rbest of the best. I've narrowed rrit down to these 15 albums, but it rwas tough.rCan't say with all honesty that it's entirely rrcomplete though. If rrumours are true, Gojira are releasing an EP right before new ryears rreve.rRegardless, read on.
15Danger
09/17 2007


Danger releases another incredible EP, and once again shows the world that french house music still has a lot to offer. Very original and extremely addictive, it only suffers from being too short. Danger needs to release an LP already.
14Royksopp
Senior


A vocal-less, downtempo album that doesn't suffer from being overlong or from having no discernible highlights. The production is amazing and the songs are addictive. There's a major house influence here, something I have not heard in this genre before.
13Melvins
The Bride Screamed Murder


Finally. A quirky, fun and experimental Melvins album that isn't let down by filler. Along with (A) Senile Animal, The Bride Screamed Murder is the best that modern Melvins has to offer.
12Rosetta
A Determinism Of Morality


Nothing to say about this that hasn't already been said.
11Agalloch
Marrow Of The Spirit


Abandoning their post-metal influence wasn't that bad of an idea at all. Agalloch hasn't sounded this visceral since the late 90's, and the return of a heavy black metal influence is most-welcome.
10The Ocean
Heliocentric


A more prog-rock oriented The Ocean than what we're used to. Slightly let down by a couple of not-so great songs, but the tightly knit concept makes this a very strong release.
9Arcade Fire
The Suburbs


Doesn't beat the 2 previous LP's, of course, but is still a fantastic album that I will continue to play for a long time.
8Mogwai
Special Moves


Incredible live album. It manages to make some of the more lifeless songs off of the Mogwai studio albums come to life with impeccible sound and fantastic muscianship. Could possibly be the best album in Mogwai's extensive discography.
7Deathspell Omega
Paracletus


DO serves up a lesson for anyone who wants to create avant-garde black metal, but still wants to have some actual musical content. Tons of great songs, extremely eerie atmosphere. Those riffs!
6The Ocean
Anthropocentric


Less subtle than Heliocentric and not quite as well-developed, but what is lacking in substance, it makes up for in fantastic songs. Almost as good as Precambrian.
5Figurines
Figurines


Figurines manages to lift themselves up from a slight stumble and create a supremely convincing indie rock album. Short, but extremely good. (Wrote a review for this)
4Triptykon
Eparistera Daimones


Like it or not, this has to be one of the most brutal metal albums ever bestowed upon the world. Gabriel has written a fantastic album that only suffers slightly from being a couple of minutes too long.
3Trentemoller
Into The Great Wide Yonder


Meet Anders Trentem?ller and his sophomore album, Into The Great Wide Yonder. Almost completely ditching is minimal techno style in favor of a much more organic, analogue sound, ITGWY manages to combine all the things we loved about The Last Resort whilst adding a lot of new things. The guitars seems to have become a major instrument in the songwriting, not to mention the almost pop-like sensibilities of Sycamore Feeling and the intense indie-surf rock of Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!. A dissapointment for anyone looking for The Last Resort pt. 2, a brilliant album for anyone even mildly interrested in ambient music.
2Kellermensch
Kellermensch


Kellermensch are godlike. There, I said it. This, their debut album, is among the most impressive debuts I've ever heard. The songs are catchy, but the atmosphere is dense and haunting. So original. Like Tom Waits meets Neurosis. (Wrote a review for this)
1The Dillinger Escape Plan
Option Paralysis


There wasn't much contest here. This is one of the best albums I've ever heard and it stands atop TDEP's impressive discography as a triumphant achievement. It perefectly meshes together everything TDEP has done before while still sounding experimental and spaced out. It manages to sound odd and spaced out, but at the same time completely natural. This is beyond brilliant.
