    I've heard it. Born Villian sucks, and I though The High End of Low sucked pretty bad...

    Lol three days grace is the worst about that. They just go with any updates or events or whatever for like, months a time. I remember about 2 years after life starts now was released I started to be on the look out for the new album and the site would just months without a new post. Maybe I'm spoiled by how active a band Lp is but I just got bored looking for it and gave up.

    channel ORANGE - Frank Ocean
    Shrines - Purity Ring
    Some Nights - fun.
    Synthetica - Metric
    The Money Store - Death Grips

    I still have a lot to catch up on. Living Things is one of my personal favorites of the year but I'm not sure if I'd call it one of the best music releases of 2012. Also awaiting Muse, Lupe Fiasco, OneRepublic, MGMT, and Phoenix. and the new Death Grips.

    Also, this is a 2011 album, but Grouplove's Never Trust A Happy Song has become one of my favorite albums of all time this year.
