My top albums of 2012 Part 1

OK I don't have much to say about these last 5 other besides "this was really, really cool" so I'll keep this list brief and let the songs speak for themselves.


5. deadmau5 - >album title goes here<

Damn good collection of electro house from that Canadian guy with the grinning headgear and Zelda tattoos.

Favorite "vocal" song: The Veldt (ft. Chris James)

Favorite "trance" song: There Might Be Coffee

Favorite "collab: Channel 42 w/ Wolfgang Gartner

Favorite "downtempo" song: Sleepless

Favorite "house" song: Maths


4. The Killers - Battle Born

After a 4-year hiatus, the boys from Vegas craft another classic (in my opinion of course). Except for "Here With Me" which is just meh. Don't know why that was a single.

Favorite song overall: Runaways

Favorite "upbeat" song: A Matter of Time

Favorite "somber" song: Miss Atomic Bomb

and that finale: title track


3. As I Lay Dying - Awakened

Yes! YES! THIS is the AILD I fell in love with. I could not be happier.

Favorite song overall: Overcome

Favorite "thrashy" song: Wasted Words

Favorite "rock-like" song: Whispering Silence

Favorite song with a video: A Greater Foundation


2. Poets of the Fall - Temple of Thought

Thank you, Remedy. Thank you so much for featuring such a great band in your games.

Favorite song overall: title track

Favorite "emotionally intense" song: The Distance

Favorite "somber" song: Morning Tide

Favorite "happy" song: The Happy Song :P

1. Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax II: Future Sequence

Mind scrambling and unpredictable. Part death metal. Part prog rock. All masterpiece.

Favorite song: The whole album from beginning to end.

The only songs I can show off youtube (and even these don't give it full justice): Astral Body and Telos

Some honorable mentions that I've only listened to as of late:


Parkway Drive - Atlas


Moguai - Mpire


The Heavy - The Glorious Dead
