Basicly a thread to post up your favorite albums so far this year.

I'll start with my favorite three.

First off, I'll go with Old Crows / Young Cardinals.
It's the newest Alexisonfire album, released at the end of June.
Seriously, legit one of the best albums this year, one of the best Post Hardcore albums anyway. Was surprised, since before this I had always been meh with Alexisonfire, liked their stuff, just not as much as I should have. Probably their best album yet.

Another one is Waking Into Nightmares by Warbringer.
Seriously, thrash at it's finest. Dudes seriously impressed, awesome, awesome stuff on here. Abandoned By Time and Nightmare Anatomy are my two favorite tracks on here, not a bad track on the album though. Metal fans, get. GET IT NOW. Especially if you love Thrash. Then get it twice as fast.

Finally, Fightstar's Be Human would be my favorite.
Fightstar are far and away my favorite band ever, and this is probably tied their best album yet with One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours. Alternative Rock/Post Hardcore at it's finest, although it's a shame they didn't venture into Death Metal again like they did with parts of Deathcar on the last album. Still, no bad song on here, great, great rock album.

So... now you guys post your favorites so far. :P

ASPHYX RELEASED A NEW ALBUM.
HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS.
I know what I'm going to spend the next half out looking for.

Is Mournful Congregation that Funeral Doom band that is on a **** load of splits?
If so, then... awesome. Will try and find that.

EDIT:
Forgot Crack The Skye. Thanks for reminding me of it. I need to go bust it out again. :P

I'm gonna get pwned for this, but Fearless by Taylor Swift.

BYE BYE TML MEMBERSHIP!

I don't know if this counts, but on a more forum-friendly note they re-released Pearl Jam's "Ten", one of my favourite albums of all time.

EDIT: I seem to have killed the topic. SORRY GAIZ. The first bit was a joke, honestly :P
