This will be tough because I am anticipating The Struts' new one as they've reportedly will release it this year .. and based on the two songs they've released, barring an unforeseen disaster, I don't think I could vote for anything else

except for the incredible S/T Futuropaco album .... I would have to drive around for a week listening to both to decide which would win

some others in the mix


- Al DiMeola- Opus

- Dukes Of The Orient - S/T

- Firepower, of course

- Praying Mantis - Gravity

- Appetite For Destruction Super Deluxe Reissue

I saw The Struts open for the Foo Fighters last month in NYC.   Perfect band to get the crowd going.   I liked !!!

My album of the year is still easily Tribulation's Down Below.

Myles Kennedy and Tremonti's albums is way up there too.

I'm really looking forward to the new Behemoth.

Disappointment of the year goes to Machine Head and their bizarre and sporadically genius mess of an album Catharsis

ROD of Toronto

His Byzantine Gay Batman Lookalike Sex Slave

A weird album to be sure but some great songs and heavy riffing! No idea what his wacky lyrics are all about, Rod must be having a mid-life crisis or something. :lol:

I could explain the lyrics to you, but then I'd have to kill you! :laughing guy:

And hey, part II is almost 100% written.

I have and while it's certainly a top 3 album (so far), the year is still far from over.

I didn't care for them really at all on their first singles, but I remember thinking the latest one was a decent song. Maybe they'll spread there wings a bit more? It's not as if they're untalented musicians, I just didn't hear anything I'd rather listen to than actual Led Zeppelin the first time around.

The all encompassing awesomeness that is Firepower made sure of that. Once it was unleashed on the world all other albums were rendered obsolete.

Still wondering how the new F+TM album, released months later, made it's way onto my list above Firepower then. Curious thing that. One might even postulate I like it better. What an entertaining notion! :poke:

I listened to the Tribulation album this morning, and forgot how great it was. Thank you for reminding me about it!

I think its been toppled by YYNOT's debut! What am exceptional and beautiful sound! At first I was like "this sounds a bit too much like Rush" but as I listen more I hear more and more personality and exuberance and I love the lead singer! Can't think of her name but she's an unlikely combination of Geddy Lee and Hayley Wiliams. Absolutely love it!

And I love Tribulation, as well as Avatar. I still need to buy both bands recent albums.

I agree, when Rush's new album comes out this year, and they have their 2018 tour live album, those will be the top 2
