    big up the lists I just liked in here

    not even bothering with mine until the Charli XCX tape
  4. WhosBroden?

    Regular Prestigious

    MUNA - About U

    Angus and Julia Stone - Snow

    Sol Heilo - Skinhorse Playground

    Out Lines - Conflats

    Gordi - Reservoir

    SZA - Ctrl

    Lorde - Melodrama

    HAIM - Something To Tell You

    Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger In the Alps

    Julien Baker - Turn Out the Lights

    This was the first time in forever where I can't remember really going out of my way all that often to find new artists, so that's something I hope to rediscover next year. In saying that, I can't praise my top three enough - I knew from the moment I heard it that MUNA wouldn't be dislodged from number one. That'll go down as one of the most influential and timeless records in my collection. Stunning album.

    I didn't listen to a lot of EP's this year but a special shoutout to @teebs41 & Out of Service's "What We Bring With Us," can't wait for the next release!

    *Note: Brand New's Science Fiction would have been on this list. Similar to @Kevin360, I can't deny the impact the album had on me at the time, but I can't in good conscience rank it against these other albums.

    I feel like I'm close to done with a top 30, some albums are obviously still coming out that could very well do some damage in the second half of my list but I don't really feel like letting it sit for much longer

    I don't think I can fix this if I find god. Prestigious

    First attempt at a top 25. Ridicule at your leisure:
    25. Dawn Ray'd - "The Unlawful Assembly"
    24. Darkest Hour - "Godless Prophets and The Migrant Flora"
    23. Cryptic Void - "Into the Desert Temple"
    22. Woe - "Hope Attrition"
    21. Hexis - "Tando Ashanti"
    20. Ledge - "Cold Hard Concrete"
    19. Charly Bliss - "Guppy"
    18. Chepang - "Dadhelo: A Tale of Wildfire"
    17. Friendship - "I & II"
    16. Monolord - "Rust"
    15. Firewalker - "S/T"
    14. Satan's Hallow - "S/T"
    13. Memoriam - "For The Fallen"
    12. Exit Order - "Hysteria"
    11. Makthaverskan - "III"
    10. Captain We're Sinking - "The King of No Man"
    9. Concealed Blade - "S/T"
    8. Sheer Mag - "Need to Feel Your Love"
    7. White Death - "S/T"
    6. Converge - "The Dusk in Us"
    5. Ulver - "The Assassination of Julius Caesar"
    4. Incendiary - "Thousand Mile Stare"
    3. The Menzingers - "After the Party"
    2. Full of Hell - "Trumpeting Ecstasy"
    1. Power Trip - "Nightmare Logic"

    Biggest surprise: Ulver. Maybe I've just been sleeping on them the past 10 years, but The Assassination of Julius Caesar blew me away. It started a darkwave/synthpop kick for me that will probably last until next year.

    Biggest disappointment: Captain We're Sinking. You're probably asking yourself right now? How can something I ranked 10 be a disappointment? The Future is Cancelled is probably my favorite single album of the last 10 years. The King of No Man was a solid follow-up, but it fell victim to me overhyping it a bit too much personally. I learned my lesson for next time. :(

    TR/ST - Destroyer

    This video is great and this song is great and more people should listen to TR/ST. New track reminds me of The National. Not relevant to this thread aside from it being one of the better videos I've seen this year, but everyone is in here and there's like 2 people on this site who fuck with the band.
