Through 12-10-13

So far this year has been a huge disappointment. Tribulation's album is amazing, and the EP from Kongh is too... but there's just been so much blandness. Nothing under a 4 stars makes my iPod... so only 24 albums in 9 months. Last year I added at least 50.

Lot of big releases that I haven't heard yet though. Excited about the new Moving Mountains, Chelsea Wolfe, Pelican, and God Is an Astronaut. Hopefully they can redeem this year.

12-26 Edit: The year definitely got better, but still a downer year. I've got about twenty 2013 releases still to listen to, and I think some might rank highly, but this list is probably done for now.
