Best Of 2010 So Far For Me

These are the best records which came out in the first quarter of 2010. It is a complete subjective list according to my own likes and taste of music, so it does not necessarily have to match with your taste. Anyway tell me which of them you liked most, or flame about some underdogs if you need. I won't care much .) 2010 so far - In the following order:

Astonishing beautiful walk through a forest of love, life and death - captured and delivered in notes and sounds of the seemingly most talented blind gay on this planet.
2Coheed And Cambria
Year Of The Black Rainbow

This is not your playground - it's my heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaart. Hi chan.

I never thought that these guys would impress me so much. "Prophets" is a world class release of a young newcomer band that wants to mess with distinguished acts such as Misery Signals, August Burns Red or any other esteemed hardcore-meets-metalcore-meets-progressive-meets-ambient experience band. Definitely worth a rec over here.
4The Dillenger Escape Plan
Option Paralysis

The Emptiness

They are back and thank god: not mainstream, not generic, not boring. A nicely written concept album with a production like five years ago and some honest attitude they were lacking in their latest output. Stop the fashion show and then you get a complete T-up. Now it's a half .)
Safe In The Steep Cliffs

Veeeery nice chillout tunes here from our friend-of-trees homie Emancipator. Awesome trip hop/ambient/dubstep-thing experience.
7Four Tet
There Is Love In You

Awesome release, nothing more to say.
8Isles & Glaciers
The Hearts Of Lonely People

Love their lineup. Some songs are fillers but overall a stunning EP of the supercombo.
American Ghetto

One word. Felicitous.
10 The Audition
Great Danger

Their last output was mediocre, this one is really enjoyable-
11Angels And Airwaves

I, Empire was easily > this. But anyway a good listen.
12Blind Witness
Nightmare On Providence Street

Generic, mainstream, but definitely fun.
13Chelsea Grin
Desolation Of Eden

I did not quite like their EP, it was a complete Suicide Silence-Fake. Now Suicide Silence made "No Time To Bleed", one of the worst Deathcore outputs of all time, so "Desolation Of Eden" is a pretty charming record in comparison and could easily be "The Cleansing Part II".
1430 Seconds To Mars
This Is War

I liked the forerunner better, but anyway a pretty solid output. Too much choir if you ask me, but nonetheless enjoyable.
15 House vs. Hurricane

Not great but definitely good and better then their overproduced "Forfeiture". I like how their sound is getting more versatile and mature, even they are still a kind of "hype" and "scene" band. Next record could prove their ripening. Mark my words.
16A Hero A Fake
Let Oceans Lie

A nice, little progressive "kinder-egg" full of unexpected candy.
17Sleeping With Sirens
With Ears To See And Eyes To Hear

I liked the album title and I got a rec for this from a friend, so I listened to SWS and found them to be quite generic, technically bad and often mainstream, too. But what keeps this album alive is the awesome voice of their singer Kellin. He seems to be a young version of Jonny Craig and pulls of some unique singing skills, offering a very wide range which truly impressed me. Anyway they will have a long road to go to reach a real status. Let's see how their next record will sound.
18Greeley Estates
No Rain, No Rainbow

No material for this list tbh but I had to make an 18th contribution - 17' lists suck .) Record isn't special but decent - nothing more, nothing less.
