Has there been a thread regarding this? I don't know. Anyway this is mostly for Blug anyway because he's about the only one here that could recommend me things that I won't hate. Well that's not entirely true, which is why I'm making the thread and not just pm'ing blug. I have some stuff from this year but want more. What's everybody liking so far?

Actually I really want to pump Blug for some hip-hop advice. I'm seeing lots of names popping up I've never heard before.

No particular order:

Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing (prog rock)
Darkthrone - The Underground Resistance (heavy/speed metal)
Arsaidh - Roots (folk black metal)
The Fall of Every Season - Amends (sad guy metal)
Queens of the Stone Age - Like Clockwork (rock)
Portal - Vexavoid (death metal)
Alice in Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (rock/heavy metal)
Panopticon(black metal)/Vestiges("post") split

So far this year, I've liked things but there hasn't really been anything that has blown me away. I hope that changes. Did you really like the new AiC that much, BR? I thought it was kind of weak.

I guess so far though my favorite records have been the new Black Sabbath, Steve Wilson, Queens of the Stone Age, Cult of Luna, VHOL, and The Ocean albums. I also need to give the new Deafheaven a full listen soon. And I feel like I'm missing stuff on this list.

Edit: Oh my God, duh, My Bloody Valentine is definitely high on my list.

AiC is still releasing albums? What is Cantrell's cocaine bucket so god damn dry that he just has to keep beating a dead horse to death? lol what a joke.

Didn't know Steven Wilson was releasing music either. Might try that out. Heard most of the new QOTSA, sounds solid. Arsaidh could be intriguing. What do you mean by sad guy metal? Is that like supposed to be some euphemism for that depressing atmospheric black metal shit?

Oh yeah I forgot about Vhol. That album is great.

And no, The Fall of Every Season isn't black metal at all. It's more like doom/death metal, but it's not "brutal", if that makes sense.

Hear for yourself I guess:

And yeah, the newest AiC really grows on you. Listen more. Also, AiC is not a joke considering their last album was better than anything they ever did with Layne Staley.

Why the fuck would I have an opinion to be different? I genuinely think BGWTB is their best album. It's still catchy as hell, but it's also by far their heaviest and darkest. Also, unlike their previous albums, it actually feels like a cohesive album instead of a "collection of songs". The album has a progression and flow, which I can't say about any of their others (including the newest one).

AiC might have some better songs on other releases, but they don't have any albums that are better than BGWTB.

I also think William DuVall is a much better singer than Layne. Sure, Layne is great on their super famous songs, but some of his vocals were fucking *awful*.

For example, I hate the verse vocals in "Again".

ahahahahaha

this is by far the most nonsensical thing you've posted. Black Gives Way to Blue was drab. And DuVall isn't even close to Staley.

Anyway I don't want to get into an argument about how shitty your opinions about Alice in Chains are, so lets leave it at this.

Wow, Kerr, I can't believe anyone could like the new AiC material that much. The stuff with Layne in my opinion was infinitely better than the stuff with William, though I do still like his stuff. I'll give the new album a second full spin soon. At this point though, I like it and Black Gives Way to Blue equally. I think BGWtB was good but super inconsistent.

lol BGWTB is like the textbook definition of a consistent record. There isn't a bad track on it and it flows perfectly.

Pump me baby Pump me!

As for non hip-hop I liked the New Altar of Plagues and Dark Tranquillity and the new Soilwork.

New J. Cole and Kanye in two weeks I think. I heard mixed about the J. Cole album though.

I'll flesh this out when I get more time.

Like I suggested in the other thread that Sadistik album is really good.

Yeah I haven't heard that Sadistik album yet but I've been planning on getting it. I really liked his debut and his collab with Kid Called Computer (especially the latter)

The new Soilwork is so unbelievably long. I tried making it through and just gave up.

Darkthrone's The Underground Resistance is easily one of the greatest albums ever made.

My surprise this year was definitely Cult of Luna. I'd kinda written them off as half decent post/sludge-metal. But after seeing them live I got Vertikal and it fucking rules.

Random Access Memories has some killer tracks too, despite being a bit uneven. Which was also a surprise since I never dug Daft Punk before.

And Skagos' Anarchic is amazing.

The new Monarque Lys Noir is fucking bad ass. ill also third Darkthrone

I have more but its more flavor of the week this year so far

Biggest disappointment by far is Summoning Old Mornings Dawn, holy crap that album is boring.

So I listened to some stuff today. Darcy James Argue's Secret Society released an album called Brooklyn Babylon]/i] which I was pretty blown away by. Avant-Garde-ish jazz, kind of more with a heavier bop influence. Kind of like Portico Quartet (who I posted about a while back) but with more horns. Really good. Also listened to [i]Skull Sessions by the Rob mazurek Octet, which was basically Bitches Brew for 2013. Pretty awesome at points, dragged at points but still solid. Got part way through Tyler, The Creator's new one, didn't like it. Sounded bland and shitty. Also got part way through an album by some band called Phosphorescent who I figured I might like, but didn't dig it. Just spacy indie folk bullshit.

It took me a couple of listens to warm up to the new Tyler, the Creator album. But like all of his albums you kind of have to be in a certain mindset to listen to it.
