    Instead of making a whole new long post I edited my post from earlier. Two new albums have made the list and both made it very high. My top 10 has changed alot this month and now I have added Thomas Rhett's sophomore album "Tangled Up" and Fetty Wap's debut album "Fetty Wap" in the mix.

    New Silversun Pickups album is fantastic. Probably my #1.

    Followed by Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men.
