    Don't have a no. 1 album of the year yet, but these are my highlights so far (in no particular order):

    - Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
    - Detonation - An Epic Defiance
    - Daylight Dies - No Reply
    - Soilwork - Natural Born Chaos
    - Rapture - Songs For The Withering
    - Anouk - Graduated Fool
    - Dark Tranquillity - Damage Done
    - Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness (it's from 2001, I know...)
    - Darkane - Expanding Senses

    Disappointments of the year:
    - Opeth - Deliverance
    - Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines
    - Myrkskog - Superior Massacre
    - Sentenced - The Cold White Light

    These albums don't downright suck, but came nowhere near what I expected/ hoped them to be.

    Try not to base your opinions on expectations.

    Bad way of going about it.

    Seriously why are half the people posting choosing Opeth's Deliverance? Call me a fool and stone me but I have Still Life, Morningrise, and Blackwater Park and I really was never able to really get into Opeth..they kind of bored me. Then I heard that Deliverance was different..it was all just the "brutal" if you will, side of Opeth. So I said hell yeah I'll check this out and it bored me way more than any of the three albums I mentioned above..Someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong here..please..

    I try, but when you read raving reviews and hear everyone praise an album before you heard it, it's hard not to become hopeful (happened with Nile).
    Troll??! :lol: Relax, don't take it so hard.

    Hmm... I don't think I need to put this, their votes topping the question, but, my vote would go to one of the three, Opeth, Nile, or Dark Tranquility. I can't really decide. If it means anything, I'm leaning more toward Nile at this point.. but only cause I'm listening to them.

    sure the 'Huldrafolk''s worth a mention, even played in a more nervous & darker way, I though noticed 'Heathen' because it's made of an unique endless track that evolute from abyssic to pagan atmospheres without the least break, hellgood!
