    You should change that title to 2016, Agent Sideburns. :lol:

    TOP ALBUMS

    01 DAVID BOWIE | BLACKSTAR
    02 RADIOHEAD | A MOON SHAPED POOL
    03 KENDRICK LAMAR | UNTITLED. UNMASTERED.
    04 TERRACE MARTIN | VELVET PORTRAITS
    05 DEFTONES | GORE
    06 HAELOS | FULL CIRCLE
    07 PANIC! AT THE DISCO | DEATH OF A BACHELOR
    08 ANDERSON .PAAK | MALIBU
    09 FALL OF TROY | OK
    10 KAWEHI | INTERAKTIV
    11 IGGY POP | POST-POP DEPRESSION
    12 LIGHTS | MIDNIGHT MACHINES
    13 MAYER HAWTHORNE | MAN ABOUT TOWN

    This was tough to rank after the top 3. It's actually been a pretty good year for music releases... almost like it's making up for how shitty the year has been towards icons.

    Here's my rankings for some of the albums I've enjoyed so far this year

    AS OF MAY

    10/10

    David Bowie - Blackstar (Still the most overall impressive album of 2016 to me)
    Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool (VERY close 2nd, if it wasn't for Bowie's death making Blackstar more than just an album, this would be #1)

    9/10

    Deftones - Gore
    James Blake - The Colour in Anything
    Deakin - Sleep Cycle

    8/10

    Aesop Rock - The Impossible Kid
    Kendrick Lamar - Untitled Unmastered
    Death Grips - Bottomless Pit
    Parquet Courts - Human Performance
    Weezer - The White Album

    7/10

    Kanye West - The Life of Pablo
    M83 - Junk

    LOOKING FORWARD TO


    Linkin Park - LP7 (If it comes out this year)
    Lupe Fiasco DROGAS and ROY
    Run the Jewels - RTJ3
    Swans - The Glowing Man

    Fixed :D

    Oh yeah I heard it and forgot to update it in the list. I found it to be extremely disappointing. No punch at all, unlike the first album.

    Really? I thought it was pretty delicate and charming. A bit too same-y, but short enough to be sweet.

    Yeah. There just wasn't enough variation. Everything sounded very mid-tempo and with no bite at all.

    Anticipating:

    Linkin Park-LP7
    Metallica-LP10
    System Of A Down-don't know honestly, not so likely.
    Sabaton-The Last Stand
    Gorillaz-???
    Helmet-???
    Lady Gaga-LP5
    Avenged Sevenfold-???
    Nine Inch Nails-???
    KоЯn-???
    The Dillinger Escape Plan-???
    Rick Asley-50
    In Flames-TBA
    †††-???; Chino announced they were working on an album.
    Black Veil Brides-???; not so interested but whatever
    Queens of the Stone Age-???
    Falling in Reverse-???; not so interested but whatever
    Green Day-???
    Bon Jovi-???
    Paramore-???
    Of Mice & Men-TBA

    Deftones-Eros; highly unlikely to be released this year.
    Limp Bizkit-Stampede of the Disco Elephants
    Fort Minor-???
    Pink Guy's mixtape

    Aaaaaand we all know this won't happen in the next 1,000 decades...
    Tool-???

    Great albums:

    Architects-All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us (each song is a 9 and a 10 but as a whole the album is an 8.5 for me, too repetitive)
    Deftones-Gore (at first it was a 7, took time to grow on me but once it did, it became even more awesome, 9/10)
    Lights-Midnight Machines
    Recode The Subliminal-The Cost of Every Man

    Good albums:

    Grip-Pętla Iluzj
    Killswitch Engage-Incarnate
    Deuce-Invincible

    Meh:
    Beartooth-Agressive
    Asking Alexandria-The Black
    POST TO BE EDITED IN THE NEAR FUTURE
    I will write down the other stuff that I anticipate tomorrow since I don't have time now.

    Very sparse year so far with just Christy Moore's album "Lily" (7/10) released. That's gonna change though, there's some heavyweights on the way;

    Metallica started mixing their 10th album, so that's definitely coming out later this year, possibly around October.
    Opeth just announce a new album, "Sorceress", which will be released late this year.
    Russian Circles new album "Guidance" is out August 5th. This is the first song, "Vorel":
    [video=youtube;VKJVYQtkPnc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKJVYQtkPnc[/video]

    Scale the Summit's Chris Lethford has a second solo album due this year (islnds - "History of Robots").
    Suns of the Tundra are planning some kind of multi-EP or album project, as are Geyser.

    Still is the writing stages are:
    Tool (looks highly unlikely they'll get an album out this year, though they might hit the studio by years end), Alice in Chains, LP.
