Cutman's Favorites, 2011

My favorite albums from this year, the ones that I think will stick with me.
1The Devin Townsend Project

Everything I like in heavy music. Everything. Over the top, complex, dramatic, funny, screams, roars, melodic, soft to heavy and quiet to loud contrast, immense layering...
2The Devin Townsend Project

And now, everything I love in light music. Beautiful, lush, immense, spacious... flutes, man, flutes... That guitar tone... The layering...

Delicious prog metal. Definitely more prog metal than their first album, too. Gave me a similar feeling to how much fun early Dream Theater was.
4The Black Dahlia Murder

This album is fantastic. They've increased the level of variation in their music, but sacrificed nothing that makes them them. Some of the melodic guitar parts are what really get me, and I've always loved their singer's scream.

This album is far from perfect, and isn't their best by any stretch of the imagination, but, I dunno, it stuck with me, and it got me to look into Camel, finally- he had always mentioned them, but I finally got around to it. It's an enjoyable album, and "The Devil's Orchard" is a classic Opeth song, I think.
6Steven Wilson
Grace For Drowning

I don't know why I put off checking this out for so long, this is really impressive stuff, and it's interesting how he interprets his influences.
7Fair to Midland
Arrows and Anchors

Just great music. Everything I love about them, turned up to 11.
8Panic! At The Disco
Vices & Virtues

A return to form by the surviving two members, and I really respect the effort. Effort which, if you ask me, paid off.
The Octopus

This album flows from song to song, for two discs, and never once made me want to stop it.
10 Tales of the Sands

It's funny, I don't consider this album amazing. But... I'm gonna remember it. Especially a few of the songs. The Tunisian influence really gets to me, I just love how Eastern influence feels.
11Andrew Jackson Jihad
Knife Man

This album is a beautiful mess of neurosis. It's just very, very honest music, with some strangely insightful lyrics, in my opinion.

Fantastic band, I want to see them get more and more credit. They have a very recognizable sound.
13Patrick Stump
Soul Punk

Classic? No. Masterpiece? Nah. But an impressive feat by a musician I respect. He did all the instrumentation, which I just always find very respectable. And I'm just a huge fan of his voice.
Left Of Mind

Some very good heavy prog, I just love the tone they have to them. I'd like to see them become popular.
