I'm refraining from making a list for a couple of weeks because I need to acquire a few more albums and listen to them based on what everyone seems to be digging.

I usually buy a large amount of albums in Late December / Early January from year end lists. Fun time of the year to catch up on things you either missed or never got around to checking out.

That's true, I'm already remembering that I meant to check out that Girls album a while ago, but it's kind of been a hard find.

That is scary awesome lol.

I'm currently listening to the rest of my "To Be Listened to" list (though it just got longer thanks to Spin). El Perro Del Mar, something I randomly caught in a Spin review, and, actually, quite glad I did.

My favorite thread of the year.

I'm a sucker for year end lists, and I always discover some good new albums/music that I missed during the year...

Carry on.

I wish I would've listened to more new music this year. I've been too busy trying to get my music library on my computer into a lossless format and listening to everything to make sure there were no problems upon import. Maybe I'll read this thread and pick through everyone's favourites for listens.

I always love this thread to see what some of you clowns think, and to see what I missed.

I love these lists as well, and there's been a lot of great music this year. I'll try to post something toward the end of the month, but I'd like to put a plug in for The Swell Season's new album, Strict Joy. And Summertime Clothes by Animal Collective is one of the best new tunes I've heard this year.

Truth. In the last two/three weeks, I have listened to over 100 records. Grueling, but rewarding.

Yep! I'm relying on best-of lists to alert me to things I might have missed throughout the year.

I'll start thinking on my own list.
