    So 9 more releases I am most likely going to end up buying. My current top 2 favorite albums of the year out of 6 heard is Eisley - The Valley and Sleeplessness - Sea Oleena. Assuming those most likely remains and the 8 I'm anticipating (not counting compilations) all makes it, I have my top ten of the year already. But I should welcome the possibility of at least three not quite up to par.
