Oddly enough, we're already approaching a third of the year. In eight more months, it will be the end as we know it. Yes, the year will end. What did you think I meant?

Since we're a third of the way through, that should mean a substantial amount of good material should have met your ears, no?

Your favorites so far: List them.

in no order

Meshuggah-Koloss (Took me a while to get into this, but it's really good. I still think Meshuggah's had better, but this album could be the metal release of the year.)
Grimes-Visions (spooky, chilled electronic bloops and bleeps. So catchy)
Frankie Rose-Interstellar (a dream pop voice but a grande vision on this release. Very cool)
Chromatics-Kill for Love (80's synth and cheese, 60's writing mentality, modern technical approach. Really mesmerizing album)
Burial-Kindred (Such a powerful electronic release. All that has to be said)
First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar
Buckethead - Electric Sea

They're the only 2012 albums so far that have really stuck with me.
New Tallest Man on Earth comes out in June, so that'll probably be added to my list too.

Edit: Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory was pretty decent also, but it didn't stay with me for long.

If you want to know what it would sound like if old school (as in, good) Weezer became alcoholics, listen to this.

that joke regarding your username was NOT originally posted by blake1221. That was a Gunpowder original.

Lamb of God's Resolution is good. Better than Wrath in my opinion.

Alter Bridge - Live at Wembley, while it's not new material, is bitchin'.

I don't yet own Koloss, but the stuff that I've heard is good.

That's what.

I didn't really like Koloss, I much prefer obZen. I would say And So It Came To Pass by Dyscarnate, and probably Hour Of Penance's Sedition.

Quote by Geldin

I still am not sure how I feel about this album. It has mind blowing moments, but I just feel that it drags on. I need to have a few more proper listens and see if it still feels that way. Otherwise, yeah, it's really good. Just feels overlong.

Have to agree there. I liked obzen a lot more than this one, even though it's still pretty decent. Seemed similar to Nothing.
Sail upon the open skies
Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball.

Stunning CD. Love the production and folk influences, and there are some amazing songs. Death To My Hometown, Jack Of All Trades, Land Of Hope And Dreams, Shackled And Drawn... Love it!

Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory

Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas

I cannot stop listening to Attack on Memory and is definitely my favorite album of the year. I also think its better than there earlier stuff.

I second Grimes- Visions

Plus the record from the Men

Tramp by Sharon Von Etten

attack on memory again

The rocket juice and the moon album with flea and Damon Albarn seems pretty cool too, haven't given it a proper listen yet though
Quote by Pagan_Poetry

Frankie Rose-Interstellar (a dream pop voice but a grande vision on this release. Very cool)

Frankie Rose - Interstellar
La Sera - Sees the Light
Meshuggah - Koloss
Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction
Nothing too good has even came out yet, although there are a couple albums that I still need to check out so I dunno. Sleigh Bells album was p disappointing, don't see why everyone likes the Cloud Nothings album either, Memoryhouse was kind of interesting but got boring real fast, same with Boy Friend.
Few bands that I like that have released an album but I haven't listened to yet so maybe I'll enjoy the year better once I do that.
..And Justice For All by Metallica. i think they've really exceeded themselves on this one, i wonder where they'll go next
I don't think I have heard any albums from this year

Isis is amazing
Van Halen's new album "A Different Kind of Truth" is an album I'd definitely recommend. I honestly didn't think that they'd be able to crank it up as they used to, but their album turned out to be surprisingly pretty awesome!

Never heard of Seinfeld, what kind of music do they play? Assuming they use Kramers, it must be heavy!

Let it be known that I concur with everything this gentleman says, ever.
pretty sure the new of montreal album is the only 2012 album ive listened to so far.

im still fully appreciating 2011, i tend to be a year or two behind usually
Resolution is the best so far, but it will all change when Be'lakor release their new album...

Doesn't matter.
Tell me who's that writin'...
Tigercats' Isle of Dogs is worth a listen. But I don't keep up with any new music.
