As March is slowly approaching, it's time to reflect upon what has happened so far in 2011. Big smile For me this has been an AMAZING year so far. I've already heard two 5-star albums and a couple 4.5's as well. That's incredible considering that it's only February and I'm conservative when it comes to ratings. Clap

What are some of your favorite albums so far this year? Metal or non-metal is allowed in your list.

I'm always too slow with each year, as I've only heard/own 1 2011 album Embarrassed. I've got to make a point to keep looking.  I was thinking of going through the 2011 new releases section on MMA to check some things I'm not familiar with.

^Definitely, I got it a day ago and I've already listened to it three times!! As for mine:

Appearance of Nothing- All Gods Are Gone
The Project Hate MCMXCIX - Bleeding The New Apocalypse (Cum Victriciis In Manibus Armis)
Beardfish- Mammoth (non- metal)
Images of Eden- Rebuilding the Ruins
Shroud of Despondency - Dark Meditations in Monastic Seclusion

Fen right now is at a 4.5 rating, but it will probably go up by the time I review it.

the only albums from 2011 I've heard yet is Jojo Mayer & Nerve's EP3 and Polyimage of Known Exits

edit: that is terrible grammar that I don't feel like fixing

Absolute masterpiece IMO! The only way that album won't make my list is if five more 5-star albums roll around before year's end... which would be awesome as well. Cool

Didn't it take more time to write that edit than to just fix the mistake? LOL

I haven't listened to any 2011 admittedly. Mainly because:

The Collective,
The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
Deconstruction,
Ghost

Haven't come out. And I haven't gotten Mammoth by Beardfish or Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maasa by Moonsorrow
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

I'm waiting until tomorrow for Scale the Summit's new album! Headbanger
But I'm with Stooge. The only thing I've gotten is The Decemberist's new album Embarrassed

Honestly, I didn't like it. They went from amazing with Hazards of Love to ehh with The King is Dead. It's mainly just prog-related (barely) country pop. I would borrow it from someone rather than buying it.

Besides Fen, I've only heard one 2011 album: Grails "Deep Politics"
It's fantastic, not metal, but very dark psych/post-rock that might appeal to dark ambient metal fans (such as Fen Smile)

The band was discovered by Michael Gira (Swans) by the way!

Well here's what I got so far. Heard 12 2011 albums so far, but I'll cut out the entries that I got as promos but didn't appeal to me personally, and anything lowers than 3*

Wolfchant - Call of the Black Winds
Saille - Irreversible Decay
Fen - Epoch
Abysmal Dawn - Leveling The Plane Of Existence
Falkenbach - Tiurida
Evergrey - Glorious Collision
Aurora Borealis - TimeLine: The Beginning and End of Everything
Battlelore - Doombound
Folkodia - Forgotten Lore

Listened to that the other day, it is very good. Also the new Obscura album is pretty good, too.

The new Obscura album could now take the number 4 spot on my list. Thumbs Up
