5.0 classic
Arcane Roots Melancholia Hymns
Despite the large departure from the heavier material on "Blood & Chemistry", "Melancholia Hymns" is probably the best work the Roots ever produced. Beautifully nuanced and expertly written, this is one of the most underrated albums ever.
Battles Gloss Drop
Bjork Vulnicura Live
Black Midi Schlagenheim
Black Peaks Statues
Before they dove head-first into Prog-Rock, "Statues" saw Black Peaks combining Math, Post-Hardcore with smaller dashings of Prog on top. There is so much creativity on display here with tracks like Saviour and White Eyes being some of the most memorable Hardcore of the last few years. Excellent listen from front to back.
Death Grips Bottomless Pit
Some argue Death Grips diluted their sound for "Bottomless Pit" and though I somewhat agree, it doesn't make it any less of an amazingly fun record. Using the punk-Guitars from "Jenny Death" and the insane vocal delivery from "Exmilitary", this is Grips at their most harsh, yet most accessible and most enjoyable. 80808/10.
Delta Sleep Ghost City
Dilute Grape Blueprints Pour Spinach Olive Grape
Hail the Sun Wake
The "Doppelganger" of the 2010s, "Wake" is everything I've ever wanted from a Post-Hardcore record. Insightful lyrics and creative musicality make this a mainstay in Hail the Sun's discography. Donovan Melero is a seriously talented guy.
Hella There's No 666 In Outer Space
"TN666iOS" is a big overbearing ball of musical insanity, and it is strangely amazing. Zach Hill returns in full swing on tracks like Friends Don't Let Friends Win and the guitar riffs are just as odd as Hella's debut. With the expansion to a 5-piece act, Hella really expanded their songwriting options, taking big risks and big ideas to craft an excellently consistent noise-rock album.
Maps and Atlases Tree, Swallows, Houses
"Tree, Swallow, Houses" is like a loveletter to Don Caballero, Hella and Tera Melos with some extra Indie Pop sensibilities. With conventional song structures and unconventional riffs, it has gone from aspiring to be in with the Math Rock big boys to being right at the top of the chain.
Pretend Tapestry'd Life
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets High Visceral Pt. 2
The things that made "{Part One}" so excellent return here but in full force, with more distortion, more interesting instrumentation and a better sense of catharsis on tracks like November and Ergophobia. King Gizz meets QOTSA meets the Black Keys.
Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool
Swans The Glowing Man
A more stylistically diverse rendition of "To Be Kind", "The Glowing Man" opens with the 38 behemoth Cloud of Forgetting / Unknowing and slowly, hypnotically builds up to the release of the titular track - a needed release of noisy emotion in the beautiful sea of ambience that is the rest of the LP.
System of a Down System of a Down
The Fall of Troy Doppelganger
The Post-Hardcore album. Everything The Fall of Troy have done (except maybe "ItUE") is exceptional, but this surpasses that somehow - influencing a generation of wannabe Thomas Erak's (including myself) to come.
The Mars Volta Frances the Mute
One of the best albums ever written ever, ever. Every member of the '05 TMV lineup absolutely kills their respective performances on this, and the payoff on Cassandra Gemini is so worth it. Call me a fan boy but this album just hits every good nerve in my body every time I pick it up. Just need 150 for a vinyl copy...

4.5 superb

Beck Odelay
Bjork Vulnicura
"Vulnicura" is Bjork at her most damaged. The songs unfold like symphonies and are oftentimes offbeat, glitchy and downright gorgeous. The avant-garde instrumentation on cuts like Family are really what sew this record together and make it the most interesting addition to her now long discography.

Pretend Bones In The Soil, Rust In The Oil
One of the most gorgeous collections of sprawling, atypical songs ever put together. Pretend create a beautiful atmosphere with some very smart percussion, crooning vocals a la Dilute and jagged guitar work. One of the most overlooked records of 2009, and one of the best Math / Post Rock albums full stop.

Really excellent stuff; like a mix between A Moon Shaped Pool, TKOL and Kid A while being entirely a thing of it's own merits. Especially enjoyed Twist, Not the News and The Axe. The closer really doesn't do much for me unfortunately but every other track is pretty damn good.
