|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.
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
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.
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.
A Determinism Of Morality
Nothing to say about this that hasn't already been said.
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.
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.
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.
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
Could possibly be the best album in Mogwai's extensive discography.
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!
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
Figurines manages to lift themselves up from a slight stumble and create a
supremely convincing indie rock album. Short, but extremely good. (Wrote a

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.
Into The Great Wide Yonder
Meet Anders Trentem?ller and his sophomore album, Into The Great Wide Yonder. Almost completely
minimal techno style in favor of a much more organic, analogue sound, ITGWY manages to combine all
things we loved about The Last Resort whilst adding a lot of new things. The guitars seems to have
major instrument in the songwriting, not to mention the almost pop-like sensibilities of Sycamore Feeling
the intense indie-surf rock of Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!. A dissapointment for anyone looking for The
Resort pt. 2, a brilliant album for anyone even mildly interrested in ambient music.
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)
|1||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
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
|Tried to make it slightly more interresting by writing my thoughts for each album. If there is anything you think is OBVIOUSLy missing, then just tell me and I might check it out. Haven't heard everything that was released this year, suffice to say.|
|Really glad to see 6 on here.|
|Really did not like 14 & 15 all that much|
|props for including 8|
|Good list, liked that you gave your thoughts for each album. Would have had some different picks myself but to each his own I guess. |
|Calling 4 one of the most brutal metal albums in the world is kind of dumb. Still a lot of good stuff on this list. 1, 4, 7, and 11 are all really good albums.|
|been a Danger fan for a while but all he does is dick ease people with EPs|
this list reminds me that i still need to listen to the new Melvins, Royksopp and Triptykon. that Triptykon album looks hella gay though even with all the high ratings its been receiving
|dick ease thats cool|
And why does everyone like The Dillinger Escape Plan? I personally don't like them at all...
|because they're the only well known mathcore band out there|
|Yeah, I guess that's true. But there are so many other good mathcore bands out there. Just do a math-rock search on Bandcamp, and you can find so many good ones.|
|go ahead and recommend that to every DEP fan|
|Yeah, I might have to do that.|
Go look up Hey Predator! on Band Camp Great hardcore/math-rock stuff.
|I listen to plenty of mathcore besides TDEP, so I don't really fall into the category of "ignorant TDEP fan". |
Plenty of stuff I could've put on this list that I didn't. Mark Ronson, Alcest, M.I.A., Veil Of Maya and a few more.
|"Almost as good as Precambrian." i just threw up a little in my mouth|
|Well, that's just like, your opinion, man|
|How did I miss this list? 1 and 2 absolutely slay.|
