    Enter Shikari - A Flash Flood of Colour is currently my favourite album of this year. Each song is wonderfully creative and original, and easy to catch on despite the controversial and challenging lyrics. Masterpiece!

    This could (is) totally biased but The Rasmus' self titled is amazing to me. Not too fancy or chart topper but their music is great, I think they are very underrated. This along with LIVING THINGS will make my whole year complete.

    And idk but Lostprophets' Weapons failed to impress me. I've been listening to them since Start Something and this last album just won't click with me.

    Eisbrecher's "Die Hölle Muss Warten" is quite a treat, for fans of industrial rock.

    Just listened to "Dear Believer" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' new album "Here." I enjoyed it, and I'd been meaning to check them out for a while, so I'll be doing that today.

    Haven't heard anything that peaked my interest this year : (

    I'm waiting for Living Things and the new album from The xx.

    So far this year, Fun.'s album Some Nights is my favorite. Sleigh Bells, The Shins, and Marina & The Diamonds' albums are all great too.

    Glad to see Taproot on some people's list. It was trashed in just about every review I've seen but I love it. So that means either I'm not crazy or we're all crazy :lol:

    Living Things.

    Other than Linkin Park, no other artist has greatly impressed me this year.
