|10. Hawthorne Heights - Skeletons:|
Dammit, why do I like this album? I haven't got a clue for it. It's just very enjoyable and it doesn't really get bored as well.
9. Continuance - Carry Ourselves:
Every time I put a list, there's one record that doesn't really fit. This is the next one. I will always love hardcore, and I love it more when it's brought melodic and these guys do it almost perfect. My favorite heavy release so far.
8. Mercy Mercedes - Believe It
Best summer record I've heard so far. All songs are catchy as hell and I noticed I play it still very often when the sun is shining. And I have a feeling that won't change soon.
7. The National - High Violet:
I one of the few who don't really liked their previous releases but this one kills it all. I love the atmosphere on this record so much.
6. Chaser - The Big Picture:
Honest punk rock record that will get too less attention at the end of the year. Can't say much more about this album. Oh yeah, the acoustic track is my favorite.
5. The Morning Of - The Way I Fell In:
One of the best vocal harmonies you will hear this year. I have a feeling every song on this album could be huge as a single. Great singalong album!
4. Against Me! - White Crosses:
This is the surprise of the year for me. I always kinda liked them but I didn't thought they were gonna be in my top 5 after six months in this year with their new album. The choruses remind me of The Gaslight Anthem and so does their performance of stage. And the five first songs on this record definitely will be played long after the release date.
3. The Wonder Years - The Upsides:
This was the first record of the new year I listened to and I had no idea these guys could pull this off. What makes this pop-punk record special has something to do with the lyrics, their quite unique for this type of music. I would say it's the perfect mix of The Starting Line, This Time Next Year & New Found Glory.
2. Motion City Soundtrack - My Dinosaur Life:
Two weeks, I listened two weeks non-stop to this album. No other artist or band. Only this pop-punk/pop-rock(call it what you want) album, constantly in rotation, and I can't really explain why. I loved all their other efforts, this one just stands out for me.
1. The Gaslight Anthem - American Slang:
This was already decided when they said they were gonna put out a new album this year. I love this band so so much. This took a while for me to sink in, but when it clicked, oh man, it's again a beautiful piece of art. This band is my favorite and it will be hard to beat this one as my AOTY.
Looking forward to:
Jimmy Eat World - Invented
Anberlin - Dark Is The Way, Light The Place
The Graduate - Only Every Time
