Surprised to see a little love for Strange Vacation. Chasm was an awesome record.

My thoughts too.

Expected to see Metric's Synthetica on a lot more of these lists.

This. I get that people have only had three weeks with it, but I at least expected it from Lueda!

Lots of love for Menzingers and Japandroids across the board. Need to check out this Sharon Van Etten it seems.

Gotta love all the Menzingers love =) Needs more Hot Water Music though... Exister is every bit as good as on the impossible past.

Did no one pick Brendan Kelly's album because they didn't really like or it because no one listened to it? Has such a great Skeezy-old-guy-sitting-in-the-corner-of-a-strip-club Tom Waits/Greg Duli style vibe to it.

@Jason I assume the only reason Handwritten isn't on your list is that you only included releases from the first half of the year?

Quick hashed out list:

1a) Hot Water Music -- Exister
1b) The Menzingers -- On the Impossible Past
3) Neon Trees -- Picture Show
4) Brendan Kelly and the Wandering Birds -- I'd Rather Die than Live Forever
5) The Bouncing Souls -- Comet
6) No Trigger -- Tycoon
7) Craig Finn -- Clear Heart Full Eyes
8) Ludcero -- Women & Work
9) Springsteen -- Wrecking Ball
10) Eve 6 -- Speak in Code

Most anticipated from rest of year:
1) Gaslight Anthem -- Handwritten
2) House of Heroes -- Cold Hard Want
3) The Vaccines -- The Vaccines Come of Age
4) Two Door Cinema Club -- Beacon
5) Green Day -- Uno! and Dos!

Haha, I love that for the most part, The Menzingers is either at the very top of a list, or not on it at all. For what it's worth, it is unquestionably my favorite of the year so far.
