2010 - Your Favorite New Releases So Far?

post #1 of 149
Thread Starter 

I hope this doesn't seem redundant. But hey, I start one of these every year in July.


It's time to redistribute the wealth music fans. What 2010 new releases do you consider essential, progressive, or just plain enjoyable?


Top five from me:


1. High on Fire: Snakes for the Divine - super riff assault, crunchy stoner metal. The album begins with the epic tile track and never lets up. What else would one expect from HoF.

2. Monolake :Silence - depends on the country. I'll run with it. The classic dub techno magician Henke released a found sound concept album with the subject of man in a blizzard.

3. Autechre: Oversteps - my favorite Autechre since Confield. It's a little more back to their roots and sounded confident and playful.

4. Liars: Sisterworld - the art rockers brought their surfy Bret Easton Ellis vibe to the West Coast. I thought their last s/t was great, yet it's good to see them get a little more creative.

5. Barren Earth: Curse of the Red River - fusion metal members of Moonsorrow, Swallow the Sun etc. As might be expected, it's full of big, sweeping hooks and interludes.


Your favorite 2010 new releases?

I'm shocked moriez would have BSS on his list. Shocked! *sarcasm* Definitely a good album.


The Wuss:

 the books - the way out

Gah, I need to get around to that. Already near the top? The Lemon of Pink good? That album was a real highlight for me.


No rules here guys. It doesn't have to be top five and feel free to give some thoughts as well. Think I"ll add some dribble to the original post.

Haven't been lucky to find 5 yet for the year.


So far the album I liked the most this year so far has been:


The Roots - How I Got Over


It's one of the rare albums I'll listen to beginning to end without the temptation to go skip tracks.

Coheed and Cambria's Year of the Black Rainbow, so far.

Also, I'm looking forward to Avenged Sevenfold's Nightmare, which just released today, btw.

There's been a lot of CDs this year that I've liked, some of which have already been mentioned - Broken Bells, Four Tet, Jewel, Johnny Cash, LCD Soundsystem, Patty Griffin, Sarah McLachlan, Sevendust, The Black Keys, The National.


But there's only one CD that came out this year I'd call a favorite out of all of them - Massive Attack's Heligoland. It's now my 2nd favorite Massive Attack album in their entire discography right behind Mezzanine! It took me a while to warm up to Heligoland (it required several listens before I started to appreciate it) but I officially love it now. My previous 2nd favorite MA album was Protection which has now been bumped to 3rd.
