I was originally only going to do one album per quarter, as I did last year but SO MANY good albums came out between January and March that I had to do a list. As a matter of fact, I could have done a top 25 and still had difficulty narrowing it down. But I’ve done it. A review of the number one album is on the way, of course. But first, here goes:


10) Mastodon – Emperor of Sand

9) Big Sean – I Decided

8) The xx – I See You

7) Japandroids – Near to the Wild Heart of Life

6) Susto – & I’m Fine Today

5) Kehlani – SweetSexySavage

4) AFI – AFI (The Blood Album)

3) You Me at Six – Night People

2) Frontier Ruckus – Enter the Kingdom

1) Sundara Karma – Youth Is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect
