    Hopefully not. Much as I love them this year's isn't their best and there's a bunch of records more deserving.

    10 - Forest Swords - Compassion

    Unfolding like a journey through a bustling soundscape of found sounds, instrumental loops and post-dubstep production, tis dazzling and evocative.

    Mogwai aren't number 1. They might scrape top 5.

    9 - Mogwai - Every Country's Son

    Oh no they're not! It's a Mogwai album, we know what to expect. Except this time, they sound kinda happy.

    Oooh, my #1 might be in the top 5. Stetson too

    7 - Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory

    [​IMG]

    Experimental saxophonist Colin returns with a new album that doesn't exactly break new ground. But when the ground is that fertile, why would you?

    6 - Sleaford Mods - English Tapas

    [​IMG]

    The Sleafords can't possibly mantain there acerbic cutting edge on a ninth (ninth!) album, can they? Hell, yes.

    He manages to make his sax sound like a Rob Hood synth line, which makes him awesome in my book

    Well I'd be surprised if she didn't make the top 25. No Richard Dawson yet either.

    Shoegaze is back. And it could be better than ever.

    4 - Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - Feed the Rats

    [​IMG]

    A Cro-Magnon bludgeoning of guttural howls and relentless metal-against-granite riffs, swelling and falling like universes colliding. It's quite noisy.

  23. redsquirrel

    Gnod?

    3. Gnod, 2. Peel, 1. Dawson is my guess.

    King Krule or Actress, c'mon!
