Q1 Twenty-6-Teen

Haven't listened to so many new albums this early in years.
1Submotion Orchestra
Colour Theory

Dub/Electronic/Ambient- not as bad as people would say, they just set the bar extremely high with their first release.
2Mandroid Echostar
Coral Throne

Prog/Metal- if coheed and cambria played prog metal
3Panic! At the Disco
Death of a Bachelor

idc this is catchy as hell
Nocturnal Masquerade

Metalz- if the new killswitch playing the same thing for the umpteeth time wasn't for you try this instead. that being said I was mildly disappointed in this.
5Cross Record

Post-Rock- really cool expansive post rock that feels like it was recorded on a ranch in texas. the drummer from the swans helps out here too.
6Dronny Darko

Drone/Electronic- every single time I've listened to drone I've hated it but this...

Pop- naming yourself after your hair is silly but this album has some tunes

Rock/Rap/Pop- that mike patton/ tunde adebimpe collab no one talked about here.
9GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

Piano Jazz/Rock- very pleasant listening
10Lobby Boxer
Big Bucks

Emo/ Rock- might be my AOTY right now, this trio has made some great stuff here
11Jazz Cartier
Hotel Paranoia

Trap Rap- dogshit
12Kanye West
The Life of Pablo

Rap- didn't like this very much
13Signor Benedick the Moor
Maiden Voyage Suite

Rap/Prog- interesting little rap EP from a frequent collab of hellfyre club folk
14The Black Queen
Fever Daydream

Electronic/ Dark ambient- DEP singers side project. good stuff good stuff
15After the Burial
Dig Deep

Metalz- good for workout jams, some great riffz
16Lushlife & CSLSX

Rap- no description just listen to this it's great
17Hands Like Houses

Rock/ Post Hardcore barely- I liked the first album but this is bland as bran flakes
18Kendrick Lamar
untitled unmastered.

Rap- B-sides brought on cuz lebron asked for it. bought the vinyl cuz i feel like it'll be worth something later.
19Obsidian Kingdom
A Year With No Summer

Post-Punk/ Metal- not sure why i like this especially considering how tame it sounds compared to mantiis but this is great stuff

trap-rap- dogshit x2
The Carrollton Heist

rap- not quite dogshit but mushmouth rapping is just terrible. the beats are nice though
22Denzel Curry

Rap (Trap I guess?)- now this, this shit bangz like nothing i've heard since R.A.P. Music. 3 way tie for AOTY right now
23Killswitch Engage

Metalz- read the soundoffs and how 90% of them say something along the lines off " well, it's killswitch being killswitch"
24Into It. Over It.

Indie Rock/ Emo- people threw around the word "hard working" when talking about this guy like he's the only one who works hard but despite that, this album is quite well done, both emotively and musically
25Colin Stetson
Sorrow - Reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony

classical- never heard the original but this sounded nice to my ears
26Explosions in the Sky
The Wilderness

Post-Rock- actually an engaging listen, very surprised after all the soundtrack work this band has been doing
27Save Us From The Archon

Post Hardcore/ Punk/ Prog- band with a very original sound that due to it's sheer relentlessness, starts sounding a little samey. still great shit here though
Little Grids

IDM- love this producer now since chinese nu year, this is just another little taste and it rules
A Mineral Love

Ambient/ Hazy- this guys thing is nostalgia and while his last album made me feel summer like no album ever has, this album made me feel like I was forgetting memories I never had, and then the dancey numbers come in and ruin it. still a good album though. I wanted to review if reviewing wasn't such a chore.
Lique Mekwas

Psych/ Prog/ Space Rock- 3rd of the three way tie for AOTY, this Russian band, one year removed from their last album come back with an african theme and without getting cheesy, completely nail it in this 70 minute epic
31Open Mike Eagle
Hella Personal Film Festival

rap/ experimental- he's doing the macklemore thing where he puts the producers name with his but this is still an open mike eagle LP, I did not like this at first listen but grew to appreciate it over the course of a few. rap with no agenda, just quaint observations
