Is there anything else good coming out this year that you guys know about? Or should I start working on my list?

There's really only one album you need from this year. Honor Found in Decay.

Wow you put Faustian Echoes that high? When I make my list, I'm not including EP's by the way.

There's so much I still need to put some time into, but I've definitely been starting to think about a list.

I like EPs more than albums because these days, albums are like fucking 80+ minutes long. I don't think a record should be any longer than 60 minutes, for the most part.

I'll probably get onto making a list a bit later. I'm not sure what else is meant to be coming out over the next month and a bit.

I only like long records if they're well done. Some of the best album I've ever heard are 80 minutes. Some of the worst I've ever heard are also around that length. That being said, some EP's (such as Faustian Echoes) are just too short for my list. It will be my favorite EP of the year though for sure.

If you can slap that shit on one record, it's a good sign.

C4C was good...well half of it was anyway.

Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music
John Zorn - The Gnostic Preludes
BADBADNOTGOOD - BBNG2
Niechęć - Śmierć w miękkim futerku
Lushlife - Plateau Vision
Jon Connor - The Blue Album
Dark Time Sunshine - ANX
Portico Quartet - Portico Quartet
Aesop Rock - Skelethon
Tord Gustavsen Quartet - The Well

Haven't heard new Enslaved yet. Think I might give Neurosis another chance too given the reviews their new one is getting.

Kinda hard for me to pick a real standout in 2012. There were a lot of good albums, but none that were way above the rest.

I think that this year I've been listening a lot to albums that came out before 2012. I think I might have to go back and re-listen to a lot of them and judging by this list there are a few that I missed and others I just know I've yet to get to. I hardly listened anything to the new Bosse-de-Nage and while II was boring, I loved the first one. I also haven't listened that much to Sleeping Peonies or Worm Ouroboros even though I know I like the albums. Also, I didn't listen to the new Swans (nor any Swans really), despite beeing in complete awe of them live (half the drunken club-goers left and I was standing in a corner with a silly smile on my face).

As for the top candidates, they're pretty boring because they're albums everyone expects:

Panopticon - Kentucky
Neurosis - Honor Found in Decay
Burzum - Umskiptar
Borknagar - Urd
Mgla - With Hearts Towards None
Dordeduh - Dar De Duh


All in all I think Kentucky is still the album I've listened to the most this year.

As for my mandatory "Swedish Pop Album", this year it's Amanda Jenssen's Hymns for the Haunted.

BUMP


I don't think I own any music from 2012.

EDIT: Actually, I looked on my RateYourMusic page and found I own three releases from 2012. One of them is the Mantas demo compilation, which I'll exclude since it's a compilation of old material. So I own


Crystal Castles: III
Deiphago: Satan Alpha Omega


from 2012. I didn't like Satan Alpha Omega, so by default my favorite album of 2012 is III; even though so far I think I prefer the second Crystal Castles album over it.

I honestly think AmenRa Mass V is a better album than Honor Found In Decay.

I should put one of these together. It's definitely not going to contain that Swans album though.

Acutally I should probably wait considering I have like 25 albums from this year I haven't listened to yet lol. As of right now, just scanning what I have, looks like John Zorn will have at least 2 in the top ten.
