I don't really feel like making a list, but it consists of All Time Low, P.O.S., Lazerbeak, Foxy Shazam, Yellowcard, Anberlin, The Gaslight Anthem.

At the top are two albums I didn't see on any of those lists, and I think it's a crime. Area 52 by Rodrigo y Gabriela is absolutely incredible. And where the hell is Gestalt by The Spill Canvas?! I didn't see Gestalt on any list! Did everybody hate that and I missed the memo or something? I'm also surprised I didn't see Foxy Shazam anywhere.

Looking at the top 30 of AP.net list, I feel like I can usually go over and listen to some artists that I missed the year, or have never heard of before. This year I was pretty disappointed. I had never heard of The Menzingers or Japandroids, listened to several of their songs, and didn't like either of them at all. I think Some Nights is a horribly overrated album, and probably wouldn't make my list at all. I don't mean to complain, but this year's lists confused me. I'd elaborate more, but I don't feel like typing any more right now.

gestalt's in my top 15, and the church of rock and roll is in my top 50 (two posts above yours). i think gestalt was overlooked a bit because the band didn't tour on it or really have any push behind it at all. it's a shame, too. album's pretty solid. i've seen foxy shazam on a few lists, but i think that the album didn't maintain as much attention as it could've because it was released so early on in the year.

Foxy's album was fun but had no lasting value at all for me. Spun it a couple times in the car after it first came out and haven't ever had the urge to listen since.
