Gaslight, Japandroids, and fun. are the most likely to have a lot of support across the staff, I would guess.

Anberlin's new one has had absolutely zero staying power with me.

Gaslight and fun. will be on most lists. Japandroids, Yellowcard and Frank Ocean will be pretty big. Mewithoutyou, All Time Low and Kendrick Lamar will have a place.

I agree with most of this (menzingers is the only 100% lock though). I wouldn't sleep on things like Hot Water Music, Joyce Manor, Make Do and Mend, The Tower and The Fool, The Tallest Man on Earth, You Blew It!, Glocca Morra, Converge, Suis La Lune, MeWithoutYou, The Sidekicks, The Early November, Misser, Loma Prieta and Hostage Calm though. (that list got a little long)

Not sure if there's a thread on this already, but I thought it might be interesting to predict what you think the AP.net's top 5 albums will be for this year when they do their year end list. Not what yours is, but what you think the website will decide on.

I'm thinking Fun., Gaslight, Anberlin, Yellowcard and The Menzingers, not in that particular order.
That would be sad. Anberlin and Gaslight are both painfully mediocre.

Any band with the word "Indian" in it.



lol.

Anyway, I doubt Kendrick will be in the top 5, but who knows. I don't think enough staffers here support him. Same with Title Fight.
too many misogynist songs about women.

I really cannot get into Vital, so I'm thinking it might be left off (if a few others feel similarly).
On The Impossible Past, Handwritten, Celebration Rock are my three albums of the year so far. The Green Day fanboy in me holds out hope for Dos or Tre to compete. Some Nights and the new Yellowcard will likely round out the five on Ap.net.

Agree on Anberlin but just can't for Gaslight. I don't just gush over everything Gaslight puts out and only really love The '59 Sound (all those Tom Waits references melt my butter). But I really, really like Handwritten. Not a poor track IMO, and Too Much Blood is probably my favourite song of the year.

The Early November should be one, and I'm hoping The Maccabees are there too. I still can't get enough of that album and it came out at the beginning of the year.
And i agree with The Gaslight Anthem being underwhelming, just wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be. Not that its bad, just not amazing.

Oh, and Alt-J deserves to be high on everyone's list. Such an amazing debut.
