Album of the Year...

What would be your album of the year?

Mine would have to be Lacuna Coil's "Dark Adrenaline". I can't stop listening to that album.

Even though it was released in 2011 in the UK, it's a 2012 album here... + by Ed Sheeran (yes, the album's title is "+")

Easily one of the most talented musicians in the business right now.

Also, shoutout to Lupe's F&L II, B.o.B's Strange Clouds, and DeLaZoo's mixtape Elsewhere Better.

I don't listen to mainstream music really, like any of the stuff that will actually win album of the year...

But in my opinion? My favorite album of the year off the too if my head would have to be Young The GIant's self titled album.

Can't post a link on my phone right now, but if you're into alternative music, the whole album is really great.

I have two choices for me, personally, though most of you have probably never heard of either. They are Parkway Drive's "Atlas" and Hurt's "The Crux". From start to finish, both albums are flat out amazing to me. Parkway Drive delivers it's best album yet (which is saying something considering how good Horizons was) and Hurt, to me, delivers their 2nd best (Vol. II was such an amazing album that it is hard to top), but it is a VERY close 2nd.

Just to add, neither of these stand a chance at a mainstream award, but Parkway Drive could easily win some metal awards with this album (though, bands like BMTH and Black Veil Brides will SOMEHOW win most of them because the metal scene today is 13 year old emo kids).

I would post both, but only Parkway Drive has a full stream of the entire album on youtube (and it's Epitaph's official account, so don't feel guilty listening to it for free....like you would anyway, ya pirates).

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
