Albums That Have Surprised Me

Just a list of albums from this year that have surprised me by either be pretty good, or pretty awful, or just not what I expected...
1 I Set My Friends On Fire
You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter

After hearing Crank That say...oh...1000 times I figured they wouldn't be able to produce legitimately enjoyable enjoyable music, but the album is actually pretty good...seriously
2I Am Ghost
Those We Leave Behind

Older I Am Ghost Good...New I Am Ghost Bad....
3Rise Against
Appeal To Reason

I don't know, for some reason this left me feeling very underwhelmed, and I usually like Rise Against quite a bit...
4United Nations
United Nations

You wouldn't think that Rickly+Palumbo=melo-grind (or whatever) but yeah...
Shudder just left me feeling really underwhelmed...
6Heavy Heavy Low Low
Turtle Nipple And The Toxic Shock

Its surprising because its actually much worse than their previous work...something that was widely believed to be impossible
7 The Human Abstract

Nocturne was pretty ok...but I was not expecting them to pull this crap on the musical community
8Amon Amarth
Twilight Of The Thunder God

Never liked them before but something about this album was really enjoyable to me
9Kings Of Leon
Only By The Night

I wasn't expecting this direction but its still great...
10The Butterfly Effect
Final Conversation of Kings

Never really got into the band before but this album was pretty great...
