I just had huge expectations I guess. It still is worth picking up, but not top album of the year. I should've worded it differently. Know Til Now is a great track, A New Life is fantastic, Of The Mother Again is good, Actress is my favorite on the album, All Is Forgiven is another good one. The other songs I guess aren't necessarily bad by any means, just weaker tunes.

Anticipation list, most excited on top:

Death From Above 1979(not confirmed)
Arcade Fire
The Joy Formidable
Protest the Hero
Phoenix
Local Natives
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
MGMT too I guess, but I had forgotten about them until someone mentioned them in this thread. That's just the stuff I know about, can't wait for the surprises.

I'd be amazed if Death Grips didn't drop at least one full-length.

Early albums I'm looking forward to,

Coheed and Cambria - Aftermath Descension - Feb 5th
How to Destroy Angels - Welcome Oblivion - March 5th


There is a rumor that Tool will release an album in 2013 but there always seems to be a rumor about a new album by them.
Black Sabbath with Ozzy and Geezer
Possibly Iron Maiden and Megadeth
Pearl Jam's 10th album

I guess we shall see what kind of year it is in music, I have some hope that it will be a decent one.

He's good but not great, and yet he seems to be a bit of a critics darling.
There are a number of reasons for A$AP Rocky's popularity:

-He began as an underground artist, so I would assume many fans believe they hold a certain "ownership" over his music. Thanks to word of mouth, blogs, and umm, not so legal downloading, he's become a mixtape success story on route to a record deal with Interscope.

-He's neither hateful nor angry. In fact, he was one of the few rappers to claim that he couldn't care less about some one's sexual orientation. I think this perhaps appeals him to non hip-hop fans.

-He makes excellent slow-jams and party anthems. His songs are often about having a good time. Sometimes simplicity works best.

-He has a likeable personality, like a kid who's just happy to have made it. For example, there's a great video of him meeting Rakim for the first time, whom he's actually named after.

-Although he's not the strongest of lyricists (unlike Kendrick Lamar), he's surrounded himself with some great hip-hop producers, namely Clams Casino.

-He's still hood, still authentic. After all, he grew up in Harlem. Which reminds me, legitimately talented rappers from NYC tend to have many "cheeleaders", be they fellow artists, radio DJs, and etc. If you can "pass the bar" in New York so to speak, you're more or less approved.

-You know you've made it when you've coined a word ("trill").

Speaking of A$AP, I'm enjoying his debut album so far. Very fun album to listen to.

Two bands stuck out for me from the BBC new sounds of 2013, they'll release their first albums this year. Little Green Cars (English) and Kodaline (Irish, more boring sound).

Any Canadian rock/indie bands releasing an album this year? Hey Rosetta released their last one in 2011 so maybe they're due for one.

EDIT: Found one Canadian band. Two Hour Traffic (from PEI) are releasing an album Feb 19th. They make pretty consistent pop rock and one of their albums was fantastic so looking forward to that one.

Indeed. They pretty much can't miss at this point. Such a great band.

Psyched to hear about the new Local Natives this year. Their "Stranger Things" was my favorite song of 2010.

Listened to this earlier, it doesn't have a Whirring, but I enjoyed the first listen. No where near The Big Roar yet.

Coheed and Cambria's new album, "The Afterman: Descension" leaked yesterday. It's a very solid effort, stronger than their last two by a substantial margin.

New Autechre in March, double album to boot. A new Tool album is likely as well, which is nice. I doubt there will be a new Boards of Canada album, they might as well have quit and forgot to mention it to their fans. If a new album did however appear I would be very happy. I am also looking forward to the re-release of the old and sought after DeepChord releases and the long-delayed double CD cv313 album.

Phoenix have confirmed that their new album will be titled "Bankrupt"

Rolling Stone magazine reported in December that the album would be released in April.

Whirring is an amazing song, especially live. They'll have a hard time topping it.

Foxygen - We are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic.

Pretty great album, like old 60's, 70's rock. San Francisco, On Blue Mountain, and No Destruction, are the standout tracks for me.
