I just felt like compiling a list of my top 10 albums of this year. This is my opinion and I'd like to see what other people's top 10 is. In each selection I put the YouTube or Spotify playlist for each album and up to 2 songs for each to highlight my favorites of the album.

10. Joey Bada$$ - All-Amerikkkan Badass
The only true rap album on the list as it's not my favorite genre, but I felt this was better than DAMN.
Legendary (Ft. J. Cole)
Land Of The Free

9. Stone Sour - Hydrograd
On more of the heavy metal side. I got to see these guys at a concert!
Fabuless
Song #3

8. Royal Blood - How Did We Get So Dark?
This album is great but isn't as good as the first one, which is one of my all time favorites from Royal Blood
How Did We Get So Dark
Lights Out

7. Papa Roach - Crooked Teeth
I love punk rock and Papa Roach's new album encapsulates all I love about the genre, almost as much as Neck Deep.
Help
American Dreams

6. Gorillaz - Humanz
These guys are a cult classic, and this new album is very different. Honestly I like it a lot even though Clint Eastwood will still be my favorite Gorillaz song.
Strobelite
The Appretice

5. Nine Inch Nails - Add Violence EP
I'm a bit biased because Nine Inch Nails are one of my all-time favorite bands, and this is just an EP but I really enjoyed the listen.
Less Than
This Isn't the Place

4. Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold
This is a refreshing new album from Foo Fighters, which are always solid.
The Sky Is A Neighborhood
Run

3. Queens of the Stone Age - Villains
I'm a huge Queens fan, and I think they are pretty underrated.
The Way You Used To
The Evil Has Landed

2. Neck Deep - The Peace and the Panic
This album was a huge surprise to me because It came outta nowhere. I loved this band's debut album Life's Not Out To Get You a lot too!
Happy Judgement Day
Motion Sickness

aaaaand finally, my number one pick,

1. Brand New - Science Fiction
This album is the clear favorite for me, as I absolutely love every single song. I had to break the rules here and put 3 even though i could put the whole thing! You should definitely check out these three songs, and if you like them check out the entire album!
137
451
Can't Get It Out


Honorable Mentions:
Kendrick Lamar - DAMN
Linkin Park - One More Light
Beck - Colors
Manchester Orchestra - A Black Mile to the Surface
Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down
Logic - Everybody

What do you guys think about my list?

I'm not going to draft a top 10, but in my top 2 so far are:

Mac Demarco - This Old Dog
I have caught myself listening to this track for more than a couple hours, singing to everything on there. Each song in the album flows and I feel it can be stitched together to make an indie rhapsody of some kind. This album makes me feel all-around happy despite what is going on. I have listened to this album while accidentally stepping into a huge puddle only to walk out happy that the puddle was only half a foot deep.

Alvvays - Antisocialites
I have also listened to this album repetitively over the course of an afternoon. In much the same way as This Old Dog, this album presents a similar mood across all of the songs. It also fits me best when I have a mood of "well that sucks, but life will be okay. Oh that bug looks happy!"

But what did you think about the top 10 list?

Also, I like the sound of Mac Demarco, and also love his poorly rendered 3-D graphics :D

I generally like it. While much of it is not my taste, I really do like the sound of Brand New - Science Fiction.

Yeah, if you like that you should definitely check out the entire album. It was so hard choosing 3 songs

Since GoNo DID mention Kendrick's DAMN... Take a look at some of these videos. I'll just link my favorite and you can go through his channel for more:
