    3. Radiohead - In Rainbows
    4. Neurosis - Given To The Rising

    i liked new Amorphis and Novembre albums, but i don't think they'll make it to the final list.

    its great, has some very nice touches (wash it all away, tiny universes).

    justin says it isnt "official" jesu release, more of a collection of leftover tracks, but they are very good whatsoever.

    It's really hard to choose, since there have been so many good releases this year; I feel like I'm leaving out some very worthy albums. Regardless, this list is subject to change before the year is up.

    Abigail's Ghost- Selling Insincerity
    Alcest- Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde
    Blackfield- Blackfield II
    De/Vision- Noob
    Explosions In The Sky- All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone
    M83- Digital Shades, Vol. 1
    Nine Inch Nails- Year Zero
    Pain- Psalms Of Extinction
    Rumskib- Rumskib
    Type O Negative- Dead Again

    I'm not actually sure if Jesu's Lifeline is good or not. Jarboe's visitation makes it better though. The stuff just doesn't evolve anymore and it sounds quite much like Conqueror which was a disappointment.

    Porcupine Tree, Ulver and Neurosis have pwned the year so far. Can't say anything 'bout the new Novembre because I haven't heard it yet :p

    A very good year for music...

    My Favorites:
    Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero (not as good as The Fragile, but still good by "pop music" standards)
    Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (VERY good album for anyone who like shoegaze)
    Jesu - Conquerer (This guy put out FOUR releases this year! ALL of them were awesome)
    Porcupine Tree - Fear Of A Blank Planet (still in love with this one)
    Radiohead - In Rainbows (wasn't expecting this to be released this year, amazing, as always)

    A few others that didn't QUITE make my top list:
    Between The Buried And Me - Colors (still not sure what to think of this one)
    Dark Tranquility - Fiction (these guys are SO DAMN CONSISTANT)
    Devin Townsend - Ziltoid (FAR better then I was expecting)
    Katatonia - Live Consternation (good to hear them live, but I wanted LFDGD stuff on here!)
    Novembre - The Blue (DENSE album, still soaking it up)
    Ulver - Shadows Of The Sun (one of the darkest albums I have ever heard...)
    Puscifer - V Is For Vagina (oh boy...)

    Peace

    Rorix
