If so, any chance of a link. I've heard a track off it and was intrigued enough to hear more.
I'll PM you, and it certainly is if you like that kind of stuff. Their first album is better though

And yeah, I am trying to become more obscure. The likes of bob have helped me do this, but also subscribing to some vinyl based youtube channels and adding certain people to RYM. Following the likes of Fantano can only get you so far.

Seems this year is coming to an end, so I suppose I should make a list.

In no particular order...

1. pg.lost - Key: Still blows me away when I listen to it. One of the best post-rock albums I have heard,.
2. Anathema - Weather Systems: Granted, the whole album isn't great, but the first two tracks are beautiful and very nicely done.
3. Bob Dylan - Tempest: Just gave this a listen the other day, and I can see why a lot of people would bash it, his voice is nowhere near listenable, though when has it ever been? The songwriting is what got me interested, he's a man who knows how to use his words.
4. Asia - XXX: Another album that seems to have gotten a lot of mixed reviews, but I personally found a lot of enjoyment out of it. It starts off strong with Tomorrow The World, and continues to be a good listen.
5. Rush - Clockwork Angels: Amazing album from front to back. Geddy Lee sounds as good as he ever has in this album. His age surely doesn't show too much in his vocals, even if critics would say that his voice has changed a lot, which it has, but he's using it well.
6. Lamb of God - Resolutions: Finally got around to listening to this a few days ago as well. Definitely a good match against Sacrament. Not sure which one I would say I like more, but Resolutions is definitely a great release.
7. The Sword - Apocryphon: I was pleasantly surprised to hear that this album goes back to their older sound. Not saying Warp Riders was bad in any way, in fact, I still have it as one of my favorite releases of that year, but this album really brought me back to why I fell in love with the band to begin with. Gods of The Earth is my favorite album of theirs, and this one takes the number two spot in relation to that.

That's all I can think of right now.

POS - We Don't Even Live Here

has jumped way up my list. Didn't like much on it at first, but now there's not much I don't like. They passed Dark Time Sunshine in my hip-hop bracket at least.

If you like this enough to put it on your best of 2012 list, I highly recommend you give these two albums listen...

Tamaryn - Tender New Signs
Blonds - The Bad Ones

I think you will have 2 new albums to put on the list.

Yup, the Zappa family trust has been holding on to it for years and finally released it. It has a lot of the same songs as (Shiny Beast) Bat Chain Puller as well as Doc At the Radar Station and Ice Cream for Crow, but they're alternate versions plus it has a few new songs. Here's the tracklist:

Spoiler for tracklist:
1. Bat Chain Puller - Shiny Beast
2. Seam Crooked Sam - New Song
3. Harry Irene - Shiny Beast
4. 81 Poop Hatch - Ice Cream for Crow
5. Flavour Bud Living - Doc At the Radar Station
6. Brick Bats - Doc
7. Floppy Boot Stomp - Shiny Beast
8. Ah Carrot Is As Close As Ah Rabbit Gets to Ah Diamond - Shiny Beast
9. Owed T'Alex - Shiny Beast
10. Odd Jobs - New Song
11. The Human Totem Pole (The 1000th and Tenth Day of the Human Totem Pole) - Ice Cream
12. Apes Ma - Shiny Beast
13. Bat Chain Puller (Alternate Mix) - Shiny Beast
14. Candle Mambo - Shiny Beast
15. Hobo-Ism - New Song


The three new songs are the first non-bootleg releases of them.
