  • Top 10 albums of 2010

    24 dec 2010, 18:57

    Wow 2010 has gone bloody fast! This year has been an interesting year in music to say the least with a few surprises and a few let downs too as well as some fantastic albums. So without further ado, this is my top 10 albums of 2010:

    10. The Tallest Man on Earth - The Wild Hunt

    9. An Autumn for Crippled Children - Lost

    8. Lis Er Stille - The Collibro

    7. Immolation - Majesty and Decay

    6. Amia Venera Landscape - The Long Procession (best debut album this year, colossal. For fans of Post Metal (Rosetta, Isis), Progressive (Between the Buried and Me) and Metalcore/Post Hardcore (Misery Signals, Underoath).

    5. Orbs - Asleep next to Science (this would be 2. but technically this was written in 2009 and should been released then, didnt come out till 2010 and is in my 2009 best albums, but its so good i have to put it in).

    4. Atheist - Jupiter (come back of this year)

    3. Alcest - Écailles de Lune (biggest surprise of this year by far)

    2. The Dillinger Escape Plan - Option Paralysis

    1. The National - High Violet


    Biggest Disappointments:

    Rosetta - A Determinism of Morality

    Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit (might surprise some people but whilst this is a great album it doesnt live up to their others, maybe i expected too much)

    Dark Tranquillity - We are the Void (huge disappointment, feels very watered down)

    After the Burial - In Dreams (wasted the potential they showed with rareform)


    Songs of the Year:

    Amia Venera Landscape - Empire (absolute monster of a track, must listen to it)

    The National - Afraid of Everyone (beautiful Melancholic song, anyone who likes Indie must listen)

    Dillinger Escape Plan - Widower (not the usual DEP track, beautiful song, shows DEP's softer and elegant side, highlight of an amazing album).

    Atheist - Faux King Christ (absolutely mindblowing technical track)

    Immolation - Majesty and Decay (title track to this is brutal)

    Agalloch - Black Lake Nidstang (by far the best song ive heard all year, quite a bit different from other Agalloch tracks, some parts are heartbreaking and contain some of the best acoustic work, build up and vocals Agalloch has ever done, i wouldnt be surprised if this song ended up on a best songs of the decade list).


    Most overhyped band/album:

    Periphery - There has been a lot of overhyped albums this year that didnt quite hit the mark for me but possibly the most hyped new debut album out this year was Periphery's self titled debut which was supposed to be a progressive metal monster. However whilst this album was good, this was not anywhere near as good as it was supposed to be. The best way to describe this album is a more melodic version of meshuggah and whilst Periphery are certaintly not a meshuggah clone and add some interesting stuff in the mix, the pure hype surrounding this album and its actual quality (my opinion ofc) makes this the most overrated album this year.


    Favourite Discovery this year: The National - This has definitely been my band of this year, probably the only new band ive been listening to on a constant. Thanks to my friend Craig aka Progmaster85 for getting me into them :P


    2011, what im looking forward to:

    The Decemberists (new album already out, its superb)

    Between the Buried and Me

    Opeth

    Defeater

    Suis La Lune

    Rage against the machine (u heard right, new album 2011 :O )

    Woods of Desolation

    Panopticon (has already leaked, gonna listen soon)

    Gorguts

    Incantation (?)

    Dream Theater (?)


    Until next year....
