Along with the latest Melvins lp, these two were amongst my most disappointing.

I liked the ones on your list listed above...

Here are a few on my list that may not make my top 10 but they are the ones I think you'll enjoy the most.
- Dvne - Asheran
- Elder - Reflections of a Floating World
- I, Captain - Tiid (Kinda reminds me of Samsara Blues Experiment who also released an album this year that I forgot to include on my list)
- Kalamata - Disruption
- Major Kong - Brace For Impact
- Max Richter - Out of the Dark Room (to calm you after all that death metal!)(Not sure why but I think Calfium Jay will like this one too.)
- Oh Sees - Orc
- Quicksand - Interiors (TooL fans should stop bitching... it took these guys 22 yrs between releases!)
- sleepmakeswaves - Made of Breath Only (Aussies)

Wasn't a huge fan of that Quicksand album. In fairness to Tool fans - Quicksand weren't a band for most of those 22 years.

The Elder album is one I need to spend more time with.
I don't seem to have Mastodon on my list - that was certainly one I very much enjoyed this year...

Shame The Beatles didn't put a new one out this year...
The outburst I had at JoAnn's Fabrics is not reflective of who I am.

I heard Ringo said they should be done writing at the end of this year, and that 2018 is a "sure thing"
