JT, Touche Amore and The Wonder Years are all battling for my #1...this is gonna be rough. This year had a lot of 4's and 4.5's for me but no clear winner. List may include... the aforementioned three, Jon Hopkins, A Lot Like Birds, Deafheaven, Frank Turner, Foals, Owel, Twenty One Pilots, August Burns Red, Soilwork, Streetlight Manifesto...

i got some work to do.

Yeah the due date should be pushed back to like December 21st at the earliest or something. I mean that's almost an entire month of albums that won't make lists simply because it came out late. At the end of the day it's trivial but still.
