@g-kal2010 You know good music homie! Nice touch by including the top 5 non hip hop albums. Carcass and Gorguts are both nasty. One of my friends recently filled in for the drummer of Dismemberement when they played with Gorguts. I didn't realize there were some metal heads here!

I come from a family of musicians and diverse music listeners. My dad's side of the fam were into jazz, r&b, hip hop and new wave. Mom's side of the fam were into folk, classical, rock and metal. This largely explains my broad taste in music. Now how i got into the more heavier, more extreme bands like carcass and gorguts, my cousins on my mom side. They grew up in a era of metal music when sub-genres like death metal and other forms of extreme metal first came into existence i.e. listening to and even playing the music of celtic frost, bathory, death, morbid angel, early gorguts, possessed and so on. I just happened to grow up being really receptive to everything that i was being exposed to haha

Variety in my music collection/playlist is particularly important to me.

Overall, good to see im not the only one here who appreciates gorguts Smile

Only been 2 albums I've really enjoyed this year:

R.A. The Rugged Man (Legends Never Die)
This album is absolutely brilliant and definitely worth waiting so long for it. Could actually be one of my favourite albums ever. People know what R.A. is capable of but I still don't think he gets the props he deserves.

Hopsin (Knock Madness)
Have really got into Hopsin this year and have mainly been listening to his other albums this year too. I know people think he can be quite corny but I think there's no denying he's got skills and his flow is more on point than the majority of rappers out there. Another album that was a long time coming and didn't disappoint.

Eminem (MMLP2) was good but not amazing. Disappointed it didn't have the Slaughterhouse feature people were expecting

Have only just got Pusha T (My Name Is My Name) so haven't really got into it that much. Definitely sounds good but think it needs a few more listens from me.

Will be checking out the Tech N9ne albums people have mentioned. Am only just starting to realise how good he is from features on R.A.'s and Hopsin's albums aswell as Apex Predator. Think I will work backwards through his discography

Wish I could have said Apex Predator as Crook is classing it as his debut album but although it was good I think he has released quite a few better projects in the past.

Funny how what a lot of people, other websites and the industry in general have classed as classics and albums of the year haven't even been mentioned - Kendrick Lamar (Good Kid M.A.A.D. City) and J Cole (Born Sinner). And Kanye with Yeezus, I can't even comment cos the man infuriates me so much with his ludicrous claims and arrogance that I refuse to listen to it.
