I have to say we've been spoilt for choice with albums this year. It's officially June so this prompts me to share a half way point AOTY list. This is what I've got so far.

1. The Wonder Years - The Greatest Generation
2. Justin Timberlake - 20/20 Experience
3. Sadistick - Flowers For My Father
4. Streetlight Manifesto - The Hands That Thieve
5. The National - Trouble Will Find Me
6. BIG K.R.I.T. - King Remembered In Time
7. James Blake - Overgrown
8. This Town Needs Guns - 13.0.0.0
9. Frank Turner - Tape Deck Heart
10. Queens of the Stone Age - Like Clockwork

Obviously subject to change, what's everyone else got?

The ones I bolded are the albums from your list I've listened to this year. Can't say The National's new album did anything for me off the bat, but I suspect that will change upon further listening like all their albums do.

I'm still not sure where I'm at on Sadistiks's new album though, there are some good songs, but there are some corny ones too, still I have to give it up to the guy, he bought like 10,000 copies and was giving them away for free, only had to pay for shipping, so that was pretty cool of him.

I spun Streetlight Manifesto's new album on Saturday but it really didn't sound far different from their other ones, and they all kind of bleed together into one sound. I really wish a new Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution album would come out, but it's going on 12 years since their EP so I highly doubt anything else is going to happen from that sub-group of Streetlight Manifesto.

Spinning the new QOTSA album right now and I really liked the first track.

Anyways as for my list... I've listened to quite a few albums from 2013, but I really can't remember that many. There's only a few I know I don't like, with a bunch of maybes, so I suspect my list will change quite drastically come December.

Anyhow here's my list

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
David Bowie - The Next Day
Iceage - You're Nothing
Finntroll - Blodsvept

I think those are the only four right now that I feel like ranking, everything else either requires another listen before I feel comfortable on passing judgement, or I haven't gotten around to listening to it yet. I'm definitely enjoying the new QOTSA album though, I can definitely see it on my list by December.

Not sure this is the right thread for it but I also don't see the necessity for a mid-hear best thread, so (in no particular order):

Autechre - Exai
Girls Names - The New Life
Clinic - Free Reign II
The Heliocentrics - 13 Degrees of Reality
The Knife - Shaking the Habitual
Suuns - Images du futur
Kurt Vile - Wakin on a Pretty Daze
Wavves - Afraid of Heights

My top ten so far in no particular order:

The Knife - Shaking the Habitual
Savages - Silence Yourself
My Bloody Valentine - m b v
The National - Trouble Will Find Me
The Joy Formidable - Wolf's Law
Intronaut - Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones)
Kylesa - Ultraviolet
No Joy - Wait To Pleasure
Amplifier - Echo Street
Cult of Luna - Vertikal

Of course this is going to look widely different come December and some of these albums will probably be nowhere near my top ten. Overall not a bad first half of the year with a handful of albums getting some heavy rotation from me. Even June is looking like a good month with new albums from Boards of Canada and Sigur Ros to keep my headphones busy.

Looking forward, after June there doesn't seem to be many forthcoming releases that interest me. There's the as yet untitled new album from The Horrors expected in September and the debut album from Chvrches but not much else. Hopefully there will be a flurry of activity towards the end of the year to round off the year on a high.

Was Kylesa's album actually good? How do you rate it in terms of their catalogue?

Mine so far....just for something a bit different. :P

Projected Twin - Earth Vs. World
Soilwork - The Living Infinite
Big Big Train - English Electric Part II
Alice In Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
Tesla Boy - The Universe Made Of Darkness
Brian McKnight - More Than Words
The Dillinger Escape Plan - One Of Us Is The Killer
Riverside - Shrine Of New Generation Slaves
Laura Mvula - Sing To The Moon
Tesseract - Altered State

As others have mentioned, there's still plenty of great stuff on the way...particularly when it comes to metal, so this list might look a bit different come December as well.
