There is really a band called Septic Tank? I don't know if that is awesome or hilarious...or both.

Judas Priest - Firepower is my favorite so far

C.O.C No Cross No Crown is damn good, don't think I'd call it album if the year good.

Monster Magnet - Mindfucker. I need to listen to it a few more times to have a better feel for it it but I already like it more than Last Patrol or the Remix albums.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones album that just came out is pretty mellow, but I like it a lot two listens in. Andrew W.K. put out a good one, too. Those are the only two I can remember at the moment unfortunately!

I need that! For me, the Bosstones have only released one shaky record in their whole career: Pay Attention. Love everything else, and they’re aging really well. Quality and class.

Ghost "Prequelle" is up there for me as well.

Also Andrew W.K.'s "You're Not Alone" is seriously great. Andrew really upped his game and added some new, expansive dimensions to his earlier sound. And I love Lissie's "Castles" album as well.

That is easily one of the worst albums not just of this year, but in years IMO.

I think it has its moments. I’ve certainly heard far worse.

It's so predictable now. You can always count on the usual members of Team Triggered to appear.
