The sheer smallness of the amount of new music I've listened to this year renders me making a list here totally pointless. Still I do remember really enjoying the album Brave Faces Everybody by Spanish Love Songs and the album Marigold by Pinegrove.

Reunions by Jason Isbell and The Slow Rush by Tame Impalla are both also quite good.

I can't believe I listened to 10 albums released this year. The second half of the list is basically by default:

Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Wire – Mind Hive
Protomartyr – Ultimate Success Today
Idles – Ultra Mono
Fleet Foxes - Shore
Adrianne Lenker - songs
Paul McCartney – McCartney III
Bob Dylan – Rough and Rowdy Ways
Pearl Jam – Gigaton
Taylor Swift - Folklore

In no particular order:

Elder - Omens
Katatonia - City Burials
Paul McCartney - McCartney III
Haken - Virus
Trivium - What Dead Men Say

Ozzy's new album was actually better than expected

I was personally really underwhelmed by the latest Pearl Jam, and I liked the prerelease singles.

For me it's far and away McCartney III and Power Up.  I'm old, so it's little wonder.

What did you dislike about it?
The whole philosophy behind the album, the musicians he brought in, the attempt to fall in line and get a "trendy" sound and most of all the songs.
