Okay, i’ve reached out to my last.fm list and also my playlist on my computer to check out which songs i’ve listened to most to and also which albums i’ve liked the most. And I’ve made a top 10 for this year:

 

1st        -           Architects – All Gods Have Abandoned Us
2nd         -           Bad Omens – Bad Omens  
3rd       -           Rarity – I Couldn’t be Weaker

4th       -           Letlive – If I’m the Devil…
5th       -           Too Close to Touch – Haven’t been myself 
6th       -           Beartooth – Aggressive  
7th       -           Glass Houses – Wellspring 
8th       -           With Confidence – Better Weather 
9th       -           Vanna – All Hell
10th     -           Crown the Empire – Retrogade

 

These artists are my most listened ones and are also albums which I can listen to all year long. Most of the other albums I’ve downloaded this year have a select group of good songs which I can listen to, but these albums in this are full of great songs.

A few notable omissions for mine: Emarosa, Thrice, The Hotelier, Bon Iver, Trophy Eyes, Real Friends, Trash Boat, The 1975

 

Having said that, it's a very tough list to choose from. Vote has to go to Moose Blood

 

Oh and @@Billy Mays the artwork is on point!

I don't understand why Architects is in everybody's list, and on top. Compared to Lost Forever // Lost Together AOGHAU is pretty okay, but not AOTY good. It got it's highlights and good songs too though, but way too many parts where I thought that we heard this before, but better. If I'm wrong please teach me better.

"Lost Forever // Lost Together" was great, the new one.. not so much. That's why it's not on my list either.  :)

While none of these albums are likely to even make my top 10, I would say Architects had the strongest showing. Also, Billy Mays killing the artwork game.

"If you thought you knew it all
Don’t shift your view, you might slip and fall
A long way down and down this rabbit hole
If the tunnel runs any deeper
You might come out the other side of the world
Maybe upside down you’ll be able see this isn’t what it seems
We are far from free."
