The RS list is okay. I haven't listened to Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros or Neil Young from their top ten. Not surprised that both Bob and Bruce make their top 5. Bit surprised that Green Day are there.

Also surprised that GOOD Music made the top 25.

Overall, it's a solid list, not too bad, but not great either.

Definitely hear Blunderbuss. I'm not big on Jack White, but I dug it.

Aye, I've heard from a few people that it's good. I've never been into Jack White at all though, so I was never really motivated to check it out. I'm sure I will soon though.

Have you heard of Kate Earl? She brought out a new album a few weeks ago and I think you'd like it.

Cody, if you're reading this as well, you should listen also.

To be honest, it's only the first 8 in order, then it's just... stuff I've enjoyed. There's so much missing from this list, as I just haven't had the time to check everything out yet, will update at some point no doubt.

Gonna note down everything on here that i haven't heard already. I put a lot of faith in your recs, so I'm sure the rest is great! I have Xavier Rudd at number 2 on my lists, such a fantastic album, love it so much.

People keep saying how great Sarah Jaffe is. I might need to stop sleeping on that album and listen to it tonight.

I mentioned this to Chris earlier, but I think you'd love it as well, have you heard of Kate Earl? She released a new album a few weeks ago and I think you'd like it.

Wish there was more love for "Death to My Hometown" from the Bruce fans.

Love that song. Only Wrecking Ball and Land of Hope and Dreams are better from that album.

Hidden gems of 2012: great music you may have missed.

Guardian picks 14 of their favourite albums that went under the radar. Some potential gems in here. Japandroids and Miguel are well known here obviously, but I don't think I've heard of the other 12.

Jumping in on the Sigur Ros discussion:

( ) > Valtari > Takk > Agaetis > Med Sud

All 5 are magnificent though. Von is a way off, don't care for that record at all.

Finally listened to this song and holy fuck it's awesome. Is the rest of the record on this level?

Yeah, it's great, definitely worth listening to. Her 2009 album, Kate Earl is equally great and a bit more r'n'b, so check that out as well!

Anyone have a link to last year's version of this thread by any chance?

http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2530732

Gonna go through your list in a bit as well! I'm going to work in a few minutes, so I don't have the time now, but on a first glance there's a lot of stuff I already love, and some stuff I haven't heard yet, that's probably great.

Also, Kate Earl must have made one hell of an impression on you.
