I really haven't heard much from this year, honestly. I love DAMN., of course. I like what I've heard from Big Sean's album. And there's no denying Lil Uzi Vert's "XO Tour Life", which deserves its status as an instantly iconic anthem.

The Darkness - Pinewood Smile

That's the only new album I've liked this year. Disappointed with Beck and QOTSA.

Here's eight that I've really enjoyed this year:

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers

Do Make Say Think - Stubborn Persistent Illusions

Avec le Soleil Sortant de sa Bouche - Pas Pire Pop [I ♥ You So Much]

Mogwai - Every Country's Sun

Off World - 2

Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory

Esmerine - Mechanics of Dominion

Noberto Lobo & Eric Chenaux - The Byre

More time with some other stuff and at least one album yet to be released will affect how a top ten turns out.

I saw Beck this summer and forgot he put out an album until this thread. Just listened to it twice. I really like it :oops:
