I think this has been one of the best years for music in my living memory.
I pretty much share your list, though I'd add:

Altar Of Plagues - Teethed Glory and Injury.
Laurel Halo - Chance Of Rain
Jessy Lanza - Pull My Hair Back
DJ Rashad - Double Cup
New Burial (even though it's an EP)
Haim - Days Are Gone
Kvelertak- meir
Weekend - Jinx

May have missed some...

Super Guitar Bros. ~ Super Guitar Bros.
Time Will Tell ~ SassafraZ
Unstoppable Momentum ~ Joe Satriani

I listened to it once and it was kinda cool but it's never been on spotify for some reason what do i do???

Man do you listen to older albums too for the first time? Because I probably listened to around an album a day but most weren't from this year. I can't imagine listening to that much new stuff.

Yeah. I mean, I don't really keep track of my listens to older stuff so I don't have an exact number, but I listen to a lot of music.
#32
Honestly I mostly listen to newer music. Not exclusively but most of the music I listened to this year was from the last few years.
#33
Lol honestly for that much to be possible I kinda imagined you were just like "OMG NEW MUSIC LOTS OF IT" all of a sudden this year and you kinda ignored everything else but wow cool then. I thought I listened pretty much as much as possible and I don't even have a job or shit to do really.

So I'm noticing a trend that albums that fuck the concept of capitalization rool lately, this year has been crazy with it

Can't really think of many albums released this year that I listened to.

Karnivool - Asymmetry
Cult of Luna - Vertikal

Those two are definitely on my list though, but I'm most likely forgetting a few.

I have yet to listen to The Catalyst Fire by Dead Letter Circus in full, but I liked what I heard so far.

Edit: How did I forget about Inside the Flood from Long Distance Calling? Definitely one of my favourites this year.
