hmmmmmmmm,

Honestly it'd probably be a hip hop album. This has been a banner year for hip hop, and Killer Mike's RAP Music I've gone back to over and over.

Corin Tucker Band "Kill My Blues" hands down most fun and yet most grown up record I've heard in years!

Myrrh - S/T
Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction
Newest Sylvester Anfang II LP
Swans - The Seer

Reissue gold stars to Majutsu no Niwa's "Frontera" (so excellent to finally have on 2xLP with a sidelong bonus track!) and the Sensations' Fix rarities/retrospective 2xLP "Music Is Painting In The Air."

It's been a killer year. I think GYBE pretty much pulled off the impossible and made an album that competes with their pre break up output. But I am going to have to do some digging and registering before I say with certainty which album is really the best.

Front runners are Animal Collective, Spiritualized, and GYBE, but I'm forgetting more of the good releases than I am remembering. No doubt ill be thinking on this all day. So much for work. Sick day?

Have you ever heard Picchio dal Pozzo? Great and much underrated Italian Prog band. I say underrated because when it comes to Italian Prog you often see Banco del Mutuo Soccorso or Area's names mentioned but these guys surely produced a fantastic first album which you don't see mentioned that often.

Thanks very much!
The best 70s Italo prog thing I have heard i recent years is Museo Rosenbach's "Zarathustra," and I also like Dolce Acqua a lot.
Needed more, so thanks.

That album rules so hard it's silly.

It's great. And darker than I expected. Which is good.
The Picchio dal Pozzo, that is.

And I just listened to the 1st record of The Seer 3xLP again too. Still not sick of it. So good.

Swans are turning more and more into the prog band with the overblown bits which you need right now. Swans are an overblown band to start with. They are arty and pretentious, all things I love.

The Seer is less an "album" than a "work." I really think they are making the best music of their lives right now.

Agreed. They hate distance between band and fans. Michael Gira was the nicest bloke when I approached him about some homophobic issues that were posted on here. KRAUTPROG, motherfuckers.

probably listened to mv/ee space horizons or meg bairds latest more than anything, although the 11:29 CD from last year I got in Feb got more play, if I ever had time to really listen Glacial will probably be my release for the year.

I have been so broke, and so fucking busy and so full of crap to do that I have yet to hear any album released this year. I need to go through this thread and pull out some thangs to rock my world.
