Jwt155's Albums Of The Year

First list ever and a good one I believe, fantastic year in music.
1John Frusciante
The Empyrean


Wow, the opening track, Before the Beginning, caught my attention and I never let go.
2August Burns Red
Constellations


Hailing from my State of Pennsylvania, I've been listening to these guys for a long time and this album I've probably spent more time with then all the others combined. Album is full of great melody, breakdowns, and just an essential Metalcore album to pickup.
3Converge
Axe to Fall


Just on the heels of ABR, Converge return with yet another fantastic album.
4Brand New
Daisy


Brand New again show that they follow no formula yet still soar to perfection.
5Between the Buried and Me
The Great Misdirect


Building off of Colors, fans of that will be pleased while skeptics of the change will still feel the same.
6Alice in Chains
Black Gives Way to Blue


My favorite Grunge band come out of a near 15 year hiatus without missing a step, DuVall's performance would make Layne proud.
7Thrice
Beggars


Thrice continue their alt-Rock outings of the Alchemy Index.
8The Flaming Lips
Embryonic


The Flaming Lips create quite possibly the most atmospheric album of the year.
9Hurt
Goodbye to the Machine


Hurt's follow up to Vol. II proves costly, losing two members and embracing a new 'lighter' sound but they make up for their losses with this fantastic record.
10Mastodon
Crack the Skye


The most approachable record to date.
11Megadeth
Endgame


Megadeth pound out an album truly worthy of being in their catalouge.
12Baroness
Blue Record


Found this band a few month's ago and what a good find it was.
13AFI
Crash Love


An album I was skeptical about at first and quickly became one of the most enjoyable of the year.
14KiD CuDi
Man On The Moon: The End Of Day


One of the most honest Rap/R&B album's to date.
15Silversun Pickups
Swoon


Great follow up to Carnavas.
16Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


My Girls...
17Every Time I Die
New Junk Aesthetic


Just a well made rock album with catchy hooks and fantastic vocals.
18Emery
...In Shallow Seas We Sail


99.9999% of Hardcore bands turn back and never return to form, thankfully Emery does not.
19Maylene and the Sons of Disaster
III


An album that your Redneck Uncle, who listens to Lynyrd Skynyrd way too much, might like, interested?
20Dave Matthews Band
Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King


Dave releases his most mainstream rock album to date.
21Them Crooked Vultures
Them Crooked Vultures


Josh Hommes, Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones.
22Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything To Nothing


Another record I thoroughly enjoyed.
23Karnivool
Sound Awake


While not as good as Themata, a great record none the less.
24Rammstein
Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da


While I prefer the more industrial sounds of Sehnsucht, Rammstein have created their most digestible and consistent record to date.
25Grizzly Bear
Veckatimest


My first Grizzly Bear album I listened to and certainly not the last.
