Title: Best Albums of the Year (so far)
Post by: axlrosegnr on August 27, 2012, 02:12:30 AM
I'm a bit early, I know, but we can come back in January and make corrections and additions. :)

I'm finding it harder and harder as the years go buy to even come up with a list. Yeah, there's some good stuff out there, but not much really sticks with me over time. So here I'm just going to list the ones that did shine though.

1.) Jack White - Blunderbuss. - This WILL be Album of the Year in my eyes. Completely different than the Stripes, hell, completely different than anything for that matter. Even if you didn't like the White Stripes or whatever....give this one a try. You may change your opinion. Jack is a songwriter in the truest sense of the word. He does what he wants in the studio, exactly what he wants. Here's a pretty great 2 hour Doc/concert he did a few months back. Can't wait to hear more from him. I was sad that I've missed out on seeing the Stripes, but I know this would be even better.

2.) Dead Sara - Dead Sara - It's a VERY rare thing to me to hear a song on the radio now a days and then rush to the record store to get it. When I first heard "Weather Man" I was floored. This girl can SING! The whole album rocks. They were part of the Warped Tour in Vegas this year, but I didn't go because I wasn't going to skip work to deal with the crowd just to see them get a 20 minute set. I see them getting much, much bigger.

3.) I'm going to throw Shinedown's Amaryllis on here too. Shinedown IMO is a great, great band. It's too bad they so often get grouped in with all the other Modern Rock stuff that sounds the same (i.e. Theory of a DeadNickelSeetherBackMan) I remember LOVING the disc when it came out earlier this year, I'm going to have to revisit it tomorrow.

4.) This one probably doesn't belong on this list....but the other day I heard Jackyl had a new disc out. Haha, so I decided what the hell, I'll check it out. It was really good! But even more than that, it got me to revisit their older stuff, and finding myself surprised I wasn't into them years ago. Just some great fun southern Rock N' Roll. Hopefully I'll be able to catch them in Vegas one day.


I picked up Lynyrd Skynyrds new album "Last of a Dyin' Breed" on Friday but forgot it at work. The few tracks I did hear were solid, can't wait to listen to the rest.

Lets see, off the top of my head so far this year, this is in no order, just as they are coming to me.

1. Pennywise "All or Nothing"- one of the best S.C punk albums I have heard in a long time.  Brand new singer, but this thing is on par with their debut from 1991.

2. Offspring "Days Go By" another solid album by one of the most consistent bands of the last 20 years.

3. Van Halen"Different kind of Truth" very good comeback album in my opinion. 

4. Slash "Apocalyptic Love"- wasn't a huge fan of the overall record but it is hard to ignore an album which boasts the best song Slash has done since the "Illusions" (Anastasia)

5. Jack White "Blunderbuss"  Jack White knows what he is doing.

Overall it hasn't been that a great a year for new music yet as I cant really think of anything else I liked besides the above.  But the end of the year should be great  with the new No Doubt in September, possible new Soundgarden, and of course the Green Day trilogy which I am looking forward to the most.

A Place to Bury Strangers - Worship.... I think these guys sound like a mix of the Doors and Nine Inch Nails.  Love, love, love them.

Blood Red Shoes - In Time To Voices.... a poppy-ish band from overseas, but I really dig their single Cold.  Not usually my thing, but I like these guys.  I would see them Sept 18 in NYC if Slash wasn't playing that same night at Hammerstein! 

Alberta Cross - Songs of Patience.... If you like Oasis these guys are for you.  If you hate Oasis these guys are most definitely not for you.  Probably seeing them in NYC on Sept 13. 

Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas.... Guy is a legend.  Enough said.

This is where the list starts and stops for me, just flat out great.

*I really like The Cult's "Choice Of Weapon" but I'm biased. ;)

Short list thus far for me, but...

1) Mark Lanegan - Blues Funeral
2) Slash - Apocalyptic Love

Looking forward to Soundgarden's King Animal, which I'm banking on jumping to the #1 spot.
It fucking better. Slow year.

I've only bought 2 albums released in 2012.

Turbonegro - Sexual Harassment
Orange Goblin - A Eulogy for the Damned


I've pre-ordered two records arriving later this month (Danko Jones - Rock n Roll is black and blue and Down : Down IV Part 1 ? The Purple EP)


I'm sure the coming records from Ghost, Graveyard and Rival Sons will be making it to my collection as well. I'll give Th?str?m's "Bev?pna dig med Vingar" a shot whenever I get my next "Th?str?m phase".

Turbonegro are awesome! 

I have the new Vision of Disorder album on preorder, it comes out in two weeks.  Can't wait for it, its their first new album since 2001.  Looks like they are getting back together for one last go around before calling it quits once and for all.

They are indeed!

They got a new singer now, Tony "the duke of nothing" Sylvester. He's got a great raw voice and seems to be a very cool guy. He used to be president of the london chapter of turbojugend and a good friend of the band, cool how great that worked out!

shame what a d-bag scientologist hank became but what the hell.

Just done listening to Rival Sons new album "Head Down". Have to put it in on this topic, because it's a good album. Got the "feel" right away, from the first track "Keep on Swinging".

Nothing revolutionary or new about this, but when there's so much talent it don't have to. The groovy bass-lines and sound and incredible voice does it for me. Really and old-school sound which is rare to find so clear these days :)

New Vision of Disorder album came out today (The Cursed Remain Cursed), their first album in 11 years.... it is sick.  The album is LOUD.  The vocals are unrelenting.

I'm gonna agree with the new Turbonegro album being the best of the year so far! Sad to see Hank go, but a new start for the band and a good one!! : ok:

Had no idea VOD had a new album coming out, will have to get it!

Yeah dude, the new VOD is awesome.  They came back HARD.  This isn't just a cash in album and reunion tour.  Its a legit album and I think this is going to be a real tour, not the usual "last tour ever" cash grab.  Not sure where you are located, but they are playing Brooklyn on Nov. 24.  My friend and I will be there.  Both huge VOD fans since 1997. 

Might as well give you my faves from the new album:

Just have to say what a good idea this thread was. I have enjoyed a lot of good music I probably wouldn't bother to find if it wasn't for you guys.

While we're speaking of trio's. Danko Jones' Rock and Roll is Black and Blue is quite a good album. Nothing ground-breaking, same old Danko, but one of the better 2012-releases I've heard so far  :)

I've been listening to King Animal non stop since it streamed last week, but just picked up the CD today.
Far and away the best record of the year for me, but 2012 was a pretty good year overall.

Soundgarden - King Animal
Mark Lanegan - Blues Funeral
Down - IV Part I, The Purple EP
Forgetters - S/T
Walking Papers - S/T
Creature with the Atom Brain - The Birds Fly Low
Slash - Apocalyptic Love
Wallace Vanborn - Lions, Liars, Guns and God

Danko Jones album didn't show up When it was supposed to so I cancelled the order. I'll listen to it on Spotify and see if it's worthy of getting into my collection :P

Graveyard was a bit of dissappointment. But only because the previous album was such an instant hit with me. I'm sure that if I give the new one some time it'll grow on me.

I really liked the first half of Rival Sons' but thought it dipped after that. Haven't listened enough to it after that.



Down : Down IV Part 1 ? The Purple EP and Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m,A,A,d city gets added to my list of best of 2012.

Okay... here's how my list looks at the end of the year...

20: Tenacious D - Rize Of The Fenix
19: Metallica - Beyond Magnetic
18: Green Day - !Tre!
17: Dinosaur Jr. - I Bet On Sky
16: Deftones - Koi No Yokan
15: Walking Papers - Walking Papers
14: Halestorm - The Strange Case Of...
13: Green Day - !Uno!
12: Yes Sir Boss - Desperation State
11: Brad - United We Stand
10: The Jane Austen Argument - Somewhere Under The Rainbow
9: Tremonti - All I Was
8: Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
7: Aerosmith - Music From Another Dimension!
6: Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra - Theatre Is Evil
5: Serj Tankian - Harakiri
4: Soundgarden - King Animal
3: Lacuna Coil - Dark Adrenaline
2: Stone Sour - House Of Gold And Bones Part 1
1: Smashing Pumpkins - Oceania

Also, they didn't release new albums, but I've got to give a mention to The Rolling Stones and Adele, who with 'Doom and Gloom' and 'Skyfall' released possibly the two strongest singles of the entire year.

Post by: metallex78 on January 03, 2013, 08:58:36 AM
These are the new albums I've purchased in 2012, and favourite to least favourite are...

Van Halen - A Different Kind of Truth
A great return, and leaps and bounds better than what should be expected from them so late into their career (Aerosmith should take note, after releasing their piece of shit).
Metallica - Beyond Magnetic
After the LULU disaster, this EP could also be seen as a return to form. Hard to believe these tracks didn't make it onto Death Magnetic, over the weaker DM tracks. 
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators - Apocalyptic Love
A solid effort from Slash & Myles, with some of the best guitar playing we've heard from Slash since GN'R (Anastasia is amazing!)
Stone Sour - House Of Gold & Bones Part 1
A late entry in 2012, and I don't own any prior Stone Sour albums to compare, but the opening two tracks are two of the best modern rockers I've heard in a long time. The rest is really strong too.
Soundgarden - King Animal
Solid return, that takes several listens to fully appreciate. And when the songs grow on you, they don't let go.
Halestorm - The Strange Case Of...
Great follow up second album, they're destined for big things I think...
Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball
Another strong release from Bruce, the guy can do no wrong.


Title: Re: Best Albums of the Year (so far)
Post by: D on January 04, 2013, 09:46:28 PM

4.Richie Sambora Aftermath of the Lowdown
5.Kiss Monster
6.Adler Back From the Dead
7. Smashing Pumpkins Oceania
8. Rod Stewart Merry Christmas Baby
9. Fiona Apple Idler Wheel

for the record Aerosmith's new CD blows.. but since I bought it, its gotta be number 10 right?

2014 was a pretty good year for music.  My top 5 that I listened to the most were

1. frnkiero andthe Cellabration "Stomachaches."  I literally listen to this album every day

2. Gerard Way "Hesitant Alien"

3. Chiodos "Devil"

4. Sixx AM "Modern Vintage

5.Smashing Pumpkins "Monuments to an Elegy"


Also some great reissues/greatest hits that also contained new tracks:

Avenged Sevenfold "Waking The Fallen Resurrected"

My Chemical Romance "May Death Never Stop You"

Oasis "Whats The Story Morning Glory"


On the flip side, very disappointed in the latest from Sebastian Bach, Slash, and ESPECIALLY the Foo Fighters.  Why record 8 songs in 8 different cities if you are going to bring in the same equipment and same producer into each studio?  What was the fucking point of that? They should have used different producers at each studio to really catch the vibe of that city.  They played it way too safe and, as a result all they managed to put out was just another bland Foo Fighter record, which is disappointing because I really liked the last one they did.

I had no hope for the Slash record or Sebastian Bach, but still, act like you give a shit guys!
