This is a great album - though it rarely surpasses the stunning opener and the majestic final track, I find...

Not an album - an EP - but something I just bought today and has instantly become the best thing I've heard this year...

Just buy it already... :)

Edit: so, actually, it's not the most listened to (yet) and it's not an album... hehe, sorry bout that :wink:

I, Parasite - The Sick are Not Healing.

Awesome mix of Industrial and Sludge Rock that I think is unique.

Well Even though it is my album. I did technically listen to it the most in different stages.

Emotion & Commotion - Jeff Beck

Amazon has a free Jeff Beck track with Imogen Heap if anyone would be interested.]

http://www.amazon.com/Blanket/dp/B001Y0 ... 181&sr=1-1

Jeff Beck was also my favorite concert this year. He's still touring around and it's money well spent.

anybody human wrote:Arcade Fire - The Suburbs. Took a few listens to get into, actually kinda hated it at first but then oh my, what a record. Life/art/music affirming. Apart from being sonically gorgeous, in a dusty, sepia toned kind of way, the thing that's most surprising about it is the subject matter. A concept album that easily could have been pretentious but it worked. Songs about things people in their late 20's through thirties actually think about. Meanwhile the music is alternately breezy then stormy, wistful then ecstatic. From the cool neighborhood bar to the ernest community garden, the kids ain't alright. In fact they aren't even kids anymore but maybe that's the victory, just having grown up.

Didn't even know I needed a less histrionic, aging hipster Springsteen, but it sure came in handy this year.

Pantha Du Prince - Black Noize was probably my second favorite, listened to that a lot. Ridiculous. The clarity and definition of the mix of that record is amazing.

Either:

Versus - On the Ones and Threes


or:

Superchunk - Majesty Shredding

or maybe:

The Walkmen - Lisbon

could have been:

Holy Fuck - Latin

then again:

Zach Hill - Face Tat

Definitely one of those.

If not then it was for sure:

Mogwai- Special Moves or Polvo - In Prism
iMac, Ableton Suite 8, NI Komplete 7, NI Maschine, NI Kore 2, Reason 5, Arturia V-Collection, Akai APC40, Novation SL49 MKII, Akai MPK88, NI Audio Kontrol 1
